New Darin & Brooke Aldridge video with The Oak Ridge Boys
It’s one written by Jimmy Fortune of The Statler Brothers called He’s Getting Me Ready, which the Brothers recorded on their final project, Amen, in 2002. The original was taken at a brisk tempo, making it a perfect candidate for grassification.
The Aldridges give it a hard driving treatment with harmony vocals from the Oaks. Gospel fans will enjoy the harmony singing and the message, while grassers will pick up on the wicked instrumental solos from Darin Aldridge on mandolin, Samantha Snyder on fiddle, Jacob Metz on banjo, and Zeb Snyder on guitar.
Darin explained how he and Brooke became acquainted with the Oak Ridge Boys and got the into the studio with them.
“We first met the Oaks while traveling and doing shows with Jimmy Fortune about four years ago We got to do many shows together, along with a few Opry performances with them, and became good friends.
Since Jimmy Fortune wrote He’s Getting Me Ready, we thought it would be special to have The Oak Ridge Boys join us on the song because of the connection we all three share together.”
Check out the music video which combines live footage of Darin & Brooke with their band, along with live performance footage of them with the Oaks on stage.
He’s Getting Me Ready is included on Darin & Brooke Aldridge’s latest album, This Life We’re Livin’, and can be found on popular download or streaming sites online. CDs and LPs can be ordered directly from the artists.
