Nothin’ Fancy was formed as a bluegrass band in 1994 to compete in a bluegrass competition. Ever since then, they have grown in popularity, released 11 full length albums, and continue to perform at festivals all across the United States, Canada and Norway including the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, the Lincoln Center in New York City, and the Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia. They have successfully hosted their own Nothin’ Fancy Bluegrass Festival every year since 2001 in Buena Vista, Virginia.
‘Crash and Burn‘ is an up-tempo song of a volatile, and perhaps destined to be short-lived affair, if the words “Maybe we should go our separate ways / We’re going way too fast / This love is bound to never last / But if we don’t stop we’re going to Crash and burn” are anything to go by.
Nothin’ Fancy are Mike Andes on lead vocal and mandolin, Chris Sexton on baritone vocal and fiddle, Jacobe Lauzon on guitar, James Cox on bass, Jacob Flick on banjo, and on ‘Crash and Burn‘ they are joined by guest vocalist Amanda Cook.
