Lorraine Jordan Featured in Cary Magazine

“Lorraine Jordan is down-home, in a kick-off-her-shoes kind of way. You’d never guess she’s a star in the music world, along with her bluegrass band, Carolina Road.

Jordan and the band have had well over a decade of success together. Their latest album, Back to My Roots, garnered critical acclaim, and its title song hit the No. 1 spot on the Bluegrass Unlimited National Bluegrass Survey last fall.

We caught up with Jordan, of Garner, between her annual Christmas in the Smokies Festival in Tennessee and hopping a plane to California.
