Audie Blaylock and Redline "Different Than Today"


"It's not every day you hear a song that absolutely depicts your childhood experiences; as the child of parents that moved from southwestern Virginia to Lansing, Michigan, this song does exactly that for me. But I think everyone can relate to the idea that while change will happen, what's really important is how we choose to deal with it." - Audie Blaylock

Nashville, TN (November 2, 2021) - 615 Hideaway Records is proud to announce the new single “Different Than Today” from Bluegrass veteran Audie Blaylock and Redline. “Different Than Today” is from the upcoming album on (615) Hideaway Records scheduled for release in 2022.

“Different Than Today”, is as rooted as Bluegrass music itself. Written by Redline bassist, Reed Jones, “Different Than Today” chronicles the journey taken by Jones' grandparents from eastern Kentucky to southwestern Ohio for work. A heartfelt and familiar story within the Bluegrass community, this single effectively links the past with the present and the future by touching on themes like the power of stepping out in faith, embracing adventurous life changes, and forging a path forward in the midst of great uncertainty: a timely lesson in the form of a deeply-personal, yet simultaneously universal story. Blaylock's vocals are intimate and authentic, himself a child of displaced Appalachian migrants, and the powerful chorus receives its life and lift from Redline's signature three-part harmony and carefully crafted instrumental support. Music is ultimately about connecting, and Redline's ‘Different Than Today’ connects us to each other as much as it connects us to our past, and it encourages us to put down roots where we're sown, as well as wherever we might find ourselves replanted by life's "blowing winds of change." The only thing more certain than this song touching your heart is the realization that "tomorrow will be different than today."

"At their best, songs help us make sense of the world. ‘Different Than Today’ not only honors the legacy of my grandparents and their journey from eastern Kentucky to southwestern Ohio, the act of writing and recording it has helped me find my way forward in the face of this frenzied world, all by maintaining a healthy and meaningful connection to my own history." - Reed Jones

“Different Than Today” was recorded at Digital Underground Recording Studio, Greenbrier, TN and produced by Audie Blaylock and Redline containing performances by Audie Blaylock (lead and tenor vocal, guitar), Even Ward (lead vocal in Chorus, Banjo), Mason Wright (fiddle), and Reed Jones (baritone vocal, upright bass), special guest Patrick McAvinue (mandolin).
