A note about the songs… The songs on Rainbow Mist can be divided into three categories: Madison County, NC ballads, Ola Belle Reed songs, and “other,” which includes ballads from other places and old time songs. All of the songs are old, and come from singers who learned them from older generations passing them down before the invention of audio recordings. Most of the songs are from poor areas of the Appalachian mountains. Here is a breakdown of each song source to enlighten the listener a little more about the inspirations behind Rainbow Mist.

2. Awake Awake – Dillard Chandler (Madison Country, NC)
3. .44 Gun – Lily May Ledford (Powell County, KY)
