New Album: CAMILLE releasing August 19, 2022 

Album Release Coincides with Anniversary of the 1969 Hurricane Camille 
That Devastated Nelson County, Virginia 

Grottoes, Va. (August 2, 2022) – Caleb Bailey is proud to announce his new album, Camille will release on August 19, 2022. Caleb Bailey & Paine’s Run will hold an Album Release Concert at the Nelson County Historical Society in Lovingston, Virginia, on the same day. 

The title track, “Camille,” was written by Caleb Bailey and is based on the 1969 Hurricane Camille, which ranks as the second most intense hurricane to strike the continental United States, including its impact in Nelson County, Virginia. 

Bailey worked with The Nelson County Historical Society, who provided access to countless images of the devastation from 1969 for the band to include in their new “Camille” music video edited by Fletcher’s Devine Creations. The video debuted on The Bluegrass Standard Magazine’s Top 15 Video Chart for July 2022. 

The Nelson County Historical Society was so intrigued by the song and album that they agreed to host the band’s album release concert on August 19, 2022, at 7:30 p.m. at The Nelson Center in Lovingston, Virginia. That is the exact date that Hurricane Camille hit Nelson County in 1969.  The band will give back to the community by donating all proceeds from the ticket sales to The Nelson County Historical Society. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the door. 

The album Camille includes nine new original songs by Caleb Bailey and the instrumental “Cobalt Rag” written by band member Rob Slusser with assistance from Chase Burley-Smith. 

Mason Via (Old Crow Medicine Show, Top 40 finalist on American Idol) heard the new album and complimented Caleb’s songwriting talents saying, “These songs are so interesting – really unique. It’s hard to find that in the lyrical content of new bluegrass music these days.” 

Bailey’s impressive songwriting talents are evident from the success of his debut album, Poplar & Pine, which resulted in a #1 for the song “Grim Reaper.” The popular album featured other singles that also charted on Bluegrass Today’s Grassicana and Gospels charts. In addition, Poplar & Pine reached #6 on AirPlay Direct’s Top 50 Bluegrass Album Chart. 

Caleb Bailey & Paine’s Run will perform on August 15, 2022, at the Rockingham County Fair in Harrisonburg, Virginia, and at the band’s Album Release Concert on August 19 at The Nelson Center in Lovingston, Virginia.

New Single: "Steele and Stone" 

Singer-Songwriter, guitarist, and band leader Caleb Bailey is proud to announce today’s new bluegrass single, “Steele and Stone.” Bailey explained the word “Steele” is a family name and is a play on words on this hot new single. 

“Steele and Stone’ has the feel of old mountain music, with the fiddle/banjo intro. We wanted this song to capture the early 1900s time period. The crowds at our live performances always enjoy this song, so we hope the new listeners will as well,” said Bailey. 

“Steele and Stone” comes on the heels of his other strong single, “Camille,” which also includes a music video release. The video includes images donated by The Nelson County Historical Society in Lovingston, Virginia, of the devastating aftermath in Nelson County of Hurricane Camille in 1969. The “Camille” music video debuted on The Bluegrass Standard Magazine’s Top 15 Video Chart for July 2022.

“As a songwriter, I have found that sometimes a song will come to you so quickly they almost write themselves. In my experience, these are usually special songs like “United Flight 93.” The song seemed meant to be as it came together so effortlessly in the studio. Approaching the 20th anniversary of September 11, 2001, my hope is ‘United Flight 93’ provides us with an avenue for reflection so that we may never forget the lives lost on that day,” said Caleb.
