Our artists are hand-picked writers and performers who have something unique to share. Some are legends already. Some are just starting out. Some are folk, some are bluegrass, some are country or country rock, some are a little bit of all these and more. All are rooted in the vast, rich heritage of traditional American music. ⇨ Read more
Endless Possibilities, Andy’s latest CD, is a collection of thirteen original songs — it’s quintessential Andy May.
For Endless Possibilities, Andy dug down into his songwriting catalog for some old tunes, like Noah and Curtains Made of Rain and added them to a bunch of newer pieces and songs, like Old Dog and So-‘n’-So, written with his wife, Lauren LeCroy May. Joining Andy on these tracks are some truly great players—some of the finest on the planet— including legendary pedal steel guitarist, Hal Rugg, to whose memory the CD is dedicated.
