In honor of February being Black History Month, Daniel Crabtree has written and recorded a song about Isaac Woodard. Honorably discharged Army Sergeant Isaac Woodard returned to the United States after fighting abroad in World War II, traveling via bus on February 12, 1946, to his home in Winnsboro, South Carolina. The 26-year-old Black man asked the bus driver if he could pull over at a rest stop to use the bathroom. The driver refused and subsequently ordered Woodard to disembark at the next stop in Batesburg, South Carolina, where police arrested Woodard. Woodard was blinded by police chief Lynwood Shull, who beat him in the eyes with a billy club. Shull was acquitted in November 1946 by an all-white jury tasked with determining whether he used excessive force. The incident of police brutality became a tipping point in the civil rights movement. As Woodard told supporters at an August 1946 benefit concert, "If the loss of my sight made people in America get together to prevent what happened to me from ever happening again to any other person, I would be glad."

Daniel previously released four albums: 2016's The Gospel Road, 2017's In the Shadow of His Wings, 2019's The Storyteller in Me and 2021's The Way I See It. He is currently preparing his fifth album, a bluegrass gospel project titled Closer Than I've Ever Been.

"People should learn how to live with one another and how to treat one another. Because after all, we all are human beings, regardless of color." - Isaac Woodard

We know that the prize is eternal life, and I'm nearer now to heaven than I've ever been." - Daniel Crabtree

"Closer Than I've Ever Been" is the title cut and second single from the upcoming gospel project by Daniel Crabtree. The album's first single, "John the Baptist," charted on Bluegrass Today.

Daniel released a stellar fourth album, The Way I See It, in 2021. Crabtree wrote all 13 tracks and has become one of the celebrated singer/songwriters in today's gospel, roots, and bluegrass music. His songs embrace the human spirit through clever lyrics, for which Daniel's writing is known. The project is a mix of secular and spiritual songs produced by award-winning artist/songwriter/producer Donna Ulisse. The tracks were recorded and engineered by the multi-talented Scott Vestal.

Daniel's recent accomplishments include recognition by the Independent Music Awards, which named "Piedmont Train" as the "Best Bluegrass Song of 2019," and a nomination by the International Acoustic Music Awards for "Best Bluegrass Song" ("Sally Sunday").

Famous bluegrass artists Larry Sparks, Valerie Smith, and others have recorded his songs. Recently, the gospel songs recorded by Sparks "Don't Take Your Eyes Off of Jesus" and "All Over Me" have charted on Bluegrass Today. Daniel's "He'll Change Your Life" charted on the Gospel Bluegrass Today Charts in 2021.

His first two albums were original gospel songs. "I recorded two full gospel projects first because I felt that was my strongest material," Daniel says. His next album was secular material, and his fourth album was a mixture of secular and gospel songs. Donna produced all four of the albums. Daniel records at Scott Vestal's Digital Underground Recording Studio in Greenbrier, Tennessee.

Valerie Smith “Renaissance” Americana / Folk/ Bluegrass Album:  Renaissance Release: September 3, 2021   UPC: 859748526163   Producing:  Valerie Smith, Tim Carter   Label: Bell Buckle Records   Engineering:  Tim Carter   Studio: Tree House Studio Ridgetop   Ridgetop, TN   Mastering:  Dave Harris   Studio B Mastering, Charlotte, NC  Photography, Art and Design: Gabrielle Minikiewicz DJ Steve Martin (Unreal Bluegrass, Syndicated Radio Program) states, "Valerie Smith seeks music in life. Renaissance rises from this search with stories of love, separation, celebration, overcoming, and devotion." Renaissance crosses through multiple musical genres while still staying true to the Valerie Smith sound that encompasses an acoustic flair with a touch of bluegrass and all with exceptional musicianship. The album was meticulously crafted and features her long-time band Liberty Pike and esteemed guests, including Andy Leftwich, Rob Ickes, Donna Ulisse, Jerry Salley. There's even a stirring number featuring Gospel greats, The McCrary Sisters. The advanced single "I Found "debuted at #5 on the Roots Music Report chart, #7 on the Bluegrass Today Grassicana chart, and #8 on the FAI Folk DJ Chart for June 2021.

The album is called Renaissance because in looking at the world and herself, Smith has been reborn. With themes including self-worth and acceptance and songs about love, finding love, acceptance, and regret, the project signifies the journey Smith has made in her life with optimism to which others can relate. The album includes upbeat, happy songs that encourage the listener to move to the groove and lush ballads with meaningful lyrics and melodies that grab the soul. Two songs were written by Smith, and the remaining selections were carefully chosen from the works of other seasoned writers to best express what she wanted to say.
