I got the chance to go to the County/Rebel Records offices right outside of Charlottesville VA in April. Fun day looking through everything and talking. Around the time when we we're leaving we started looking through a box of LPs that were going up for sale and I asked about this one and bought it up from him. Ernest was from Powell Co. Ky and recorded 6 songs for Rich R Tone Records in the late 40's then turned his attention towards evangelism - 65 years in service and had a radio ministry for 55 years called Highway to Heaven. He passed at home in June of 2002 at the age of 88.
Killer hot shit bluegrass gospel record. Just A Rose Will Do is on repeat - if anyone has more of his records Id love to hear them!
