“Kentucky BlueStar” is the new album released by Marty Falle. This album is following his last album, “Virgin on the Bluegrass”. After listening to “Kentucky BlueStar”, I must say, it is a good album. The speed of the album to me would be considered middle of the road. The songs on the album came from the depths of Marty himself. All but one song on the album has been written by him.
Marty’s creativity with words allows him to write/sing songs that range from painting pictures of fields of wildflowers to race cars at a NASCAR race along with the traditional songs about love between two people. Marty shares his love for the American Roots music throughout the entire album.
My favorite song on the album is probably “Good To Go”. This song is one that Marty wrote to his wife earlier in their relationship. It has a great melody that stuck in my mind for a while. “Good To Go” tells how they have a marriage where they both walk together and are ready for anything. The second song that caught my attention was “Cherokee”. “Cherokee” was written in respect to a part of American History and the heritage of the Cherokee Indian.
Marty Falle has had great success with the title song, “Kentucky BlueStar”, as it has made great rankings on multiple charts (Bluegrass Jamboree, The Bluegrass Today Singles Chart, and etc.) along with appearing on the front of the 2023 Bluegrass Standard Magazine and even being my artist spotlight for a month.
The new album, “Kentucky BlueStar” has a great line-up of the artists: Marty Falle with lead/background vocals and guitar, Michael Bub playing acoustic bass, Rob Ickes on dobro, Matt Menefee picking the banjo, Jonathan Yudkin on the mandolin and fiddle, and the background vocals are those of Marty Slayton.
