November 14, 2018 – Nashville, TN – Rounder Records is pleased to announce that acclaimed acoustic music duo Darin & Brooke Aldridge have joined the roster and will release their debut for the label in 2019.

Rounder co-founder Ken Irwin said, ““Darin and Brooke are two of the most gifted and hard-working young artists in bluegrass. Their soaring vocals and extraordinarily beautiful harmonies really make them stand out. After being fans for years, we’re excited to have the opportunity to work with them.”

“To look at the history and notable roster of artists on Rounder Records is simply amazing. It goes to show what an incredible label it’s been since the ‘70s,” remarked Brooke Aldridge.

Darin Aldridge added, “As artists, there aren’t adequate words to describe the feeling when you realize you get to be a part of a label that has done such extraordinary things within the music industry for so many years and still continues to do them today. We are honored to embark on this new adventure with Rounder and look forward to sharing new music with ALL of our friends in 2019!”

The duo has been nominated for numerous awards;  their rousing live performances – including ten appearances at the Grand Ole Opry in just the past year — have won them legions of new fans; and their recent recordings have topped Bluegrass, Americana/Roots, and Gospel charts.
