Welcome Adam Haynes

The Grascals are very pleased to announce the addition of fiddler Adam Haynes to the band. Adam has an impressive pedigree having played with some of the finest: Melvin Goins & Windy Mountain, The James King Band, David Parmley & Continental Divide, Dailey & Vincent, Larry Stephenson Band, and most recently Grasstowne. Adam is originally from Norwalk, OH but spent quite some time in Eastern Kentucky where his family has roots as deep as bluegrass. Adam currently makes his home in Portland, TN with his wife, Janette, and two daughters, Bella (8) and Ellie (3).

The Grascals are happy to have Adam in the band and look forward to their fans and friends being able to hear him play.


The Grascals Go Pink

Nashville, TN — The Grascals showed support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month by wearing pink for performances at Branson’s Starlite Theater. The band performed three shows as guests of the Larry’s Country Diner Live show. Additionally, the Grascals pledged a portion of October merchandise sales to the fight against cancer with a donation to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

“It seems that everyone knows somebody that’s been touched by cancer,” said Terry Eldredge. “So many of our own friends, family and fans have suffered or lost someone to cancer. We hope to see an end to that awful disease in our lifetime and if wearing pink will make folks pay attention, well, we’re men enough to do it … and one girl enough.”
