Sarah Darling develops "Bad Habit" with Gill

Thursday, February 24, 2011 – Sarah Darling will make her Grand Ole Opry debut this Saturday night, Feb. 26 with a little help from a friend - Vince Gill.

"When I was a little girl my grandpa used to tell me, 'One of these days, you'll make it to the Grand Ole Opry.' It's here," said Darling. "As a singer, it really is a dream come true to play the stage where so many greats have played. I'm so excited to get to play the Opry for the first time.

The duo will sing Bad Habit, which Darling co-wrote. The song is on her "Angels & Devils" CD, out earlier this month.

Concert Review: With Tuttle, the music's in good hands – Molly Tuttle, preternaturally talented artist and current reigning IBMA Guitar Player of The Year (2017) lives up to the hype. Her songs are well-crafted and soulfully delivered. Boothbay Harbor Maine is a typical seaside resort town (perhaps slightly more upscale than most), which is somnolent, if not downright dead, 8 1/2 months of the year.... »»»
