Charlie Worsham On Mountain Stage
Charlie Worsham makes his second appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live on the campus of West Virginia University in Morgantown. Originally from Grenada, Miss., Worsham appeared on the Grand Ole Opry in 1998 as a 12-year-old bluegrass banjo prodigy. He went on to study production and recording engineering at the Berklee School of Music, and began to include pop and rock sounds in his songwriting. He landed a deal with a publishing company after moving to Nashville, and before long was playing with the band KingBilly.
Worsham toured with Taylor Swift in 2011 and has opened for Miranda Lambert and Wade Bowen. His performance here draws from his first full-length album, Rubberband, which features cameos from musical heroes Vince Gill and Marty Stuart. Worsham plays lead guitar and banjo backed by his own band, featuring Scott Trayer on bass, drummer Scott Quintana and guitarist Alex Gallagher.
