I’m already such a fan..the new album from Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley is a wonderful piece of work.”
Merle Haggard


Compass Records has released of Rob Ickes & Trey Hensley’s debut album, Before The Sun Goes Down.  The album pairs Rob Ickes, the International Bluegrass Music Association’s fifteen-time Dobro Player of Year and 2015 Grammy nominee, with rising vocalist and guitarist, Trey Hensley.  Ickes and Hensley’s collaboration blends contemporary bluegrass and the spare studio stylings of classic ’60s and ’70s country music.  It is bound to be worth a close listen.

 “Trey Hensley is the real deal – I’m one of his biggest fans.” —Marty Stuart

Accompanied by some of the finest musicians in Nashville, the duo tackles a diverse group of songs, putting a fresh spin on the music of Jimmy Martin, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Billy Joe Shaver, Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimmie Rodgers and Bob Wills.  Tracks include the title track, an acoustic country blues take on Vaughn’s “Pride and Joy,” a reportedly red-hot version of Billy Joe Shaver’s “Georgia on a Fast Train,” a grassy rendition of Bobby Starnes’ “Lightning,” and the Trey Hensley original “My Way is the Highway.”

Check out Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley playing in this fascinating version Stevie Ray Vaughn’s “Pride and Joy.”
