Billy Strings released Me/And/Dad, the first album he’s recorded with his dad, Terry Barber, last month via Rounder Records (pre-order here). The product of a longtime dream, the record features new versions of fourteen bluegrass and country classics that the two have been playing together since Strings was a young child. In celebration of the release, Strings and Barber were recently featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered” speaking with host Ailsa Chang, while Strings was also featured on “CBS Sunday Morning” earlier this fall speaking with correspondent Conor Knighton.
