10 QUOTES WITH «BLUEGRASS»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word bluegrass.
1
Dierks Bentley
That's what I love about Nashville and the music community - seeing kids around acoustic music and bluegrass picking parties is the best.
2
Dierks Bentley
I like big shows, a lot of volume and a lot of energy. I love electric instruments. But I do love mixing those with bluegrass instruments and cranking those up, too, with a little bit of that rock energy.
3
Dierks Bentley
I think the great country songs mixed with some of that bluegrass instrumentation - and surrounding all that with a little bit of a rock vibe and energy - is the kind of music I make.
4
Clare Bowen
I always loved bluegrass, but there was so much I didn't know about American country music in respect to the origins of this country. It was interesting to see the evolution of it.
5
Homaro Cantu
All of the plants that we do not consider food that are safe for the human body to digest, we don't eat because they're sour and bitter. The reason why you don't eat Kentucky bluegrass or crabgrass is because it tastes sour and bitter.
6
Brandi Carlile
My mother's a singer and my mother's father is a singer, and everyone on both sides are all country-western bluegrass musicians.
7
Eugene Chadbourne
I play these sort of comical instruments I invented, like the electric rake and the electric plunger. I do a lot of almost stand-up comedy material. Just the juxtaposition of the different styles in itself sometimes is funny. Like, I do sort of an acoustic version of 'Purple Haze' that has some bluegrass licks in it.
8
Eric Close
If you looked at my iPod, you would get a trip out of all the different music, from the real heavy metal to bluegrass to classical.
9
Bela Fleck
I think the Flecktones are a mixture of acoustic and electronic music with a lot of roots in folk and bluegrass as well as funk and jazz.
10
