– The Grascals reached the top of the Billboard Bluegrass charts with "The Grascals & Friends - Country Classics with a Bluegrass Spin," displacing Dierks Bentley's "Up on the Ridge."
The Grascals' album also entered the Billboard Top Country Albums chart at 26, the Heatseekers chart at 2, the Independent chart at 15, the Billboard 200 at 113 and the Top Current Billboard 200 at 108. A portion of the proceeds will go to St. Jude's Hospital in Memphis.
"This is just icing on the cake ... like Cracker Barrel gravy on the biscuit," said bass player Terry Smith. He added, "The relationship has been so great thus far. Hopefully the sales and great partnership will continue in kind. Also, I wish Friday fish fry was seven days a week."
"This is something we've looked forward to for so long," said mandolin player Danny Roberts. "It's doing so well, so quickly. The added bonus of it benefiting St. Jude makes it all the better."
