Hooked on Bluegrass

Rosanna Young

My husband David and I have been playing and singing country music together ever since we married in 1946. We listened to played and sang the songs of Kitty Wells, Jeanne Shepherd, Rose Maddox, Tommy Collins, Marty Robbins, Hank Snow and all those guys.

We later had a family country gospel band and won some awards for our harmonies when our daughter Janice started singing with us. Dave's brother and sister-in-law Duke & Ruth DuCommun and their daughter Diana Donnelly kept asking us to go to the Grass Valley Festival with them and we finally went to our first one in about 1985. We had a great time and knew we'd be back. We found out that a lot of the country gospel songs we'd been singing were really bluegrass gospel songs so we felt right at home. We really are "Hooked on Bluegrass".
