Grandstaff is a common name in the Shenandoah Valley, particularly in the
Woodstock region. a young boy was kidnapped by the Luray natives on a raid
at the Edinburg Mill in Edinburg, Va. he would later come back home
carrying a large wooden stick hence the name Grandstaff, having been raised
for some years by the Luray (Luray is in Page County) east of Shenandoah
County. I'm not sure of the actual surname of the boy who was taken, but
apparently he settled back here and carried the Grandstaff name.

How did I not know this? I first saw the Statlers at the Gray Station,Tn.
Fair. I saw them in concert in Salem and Richmond, I would and still
listen to them 24-7.The best ever. And now these two sons are carrying on
the tradition. GREAT

Raised in the 60/70's, I was quite familiar with the Statlers even though I
was raised in the NYC area. Always was impressed. Saw the Gaither show and
man, those guys were excellent.I could tell these two young men were
Reid's. This type of country probably would never be popular to the masses
but that is no reason not to make music that sounds this good.

Wow what a great song. Great harmony. Love how they put the Statlers Song
titles in the lyrics. Nobody can out do the Statler Brothers not even
cousins but what a great duet. Next generation of traditional country music
as they follow in their fathers footsteps. Hope to hear more of them. My
hat is off to great music and I don't even wear one. I love the traditional

This is a Great Song! I appreciate the "LOVE" that WENT into this CD! It
did take a lifetime to collect these Pictures as A Teenager I have Several
Others! They are a little frayed on the ends ! We Grew Up Enjoying several
concerts! WE ALWAYS GOT Lost getting to Your Concerts But That was part of
the FUN! I realize Now The lack of Concern about Our Safety ! However,we
were Focused on One Thing! They gave Us Memories that will last a LIFETIME
as well! 

Author Anita Kessinger (10 months)
Love this song so much - as well as the subject! Like so many folks, I grew
up on the Statlers. They were my first concert, way back in the seventies!
I'm always on the lookout for more Grandstaff/Wilson Fairchild.

Funny, I had no idea the Statlers retired, use to love them back in their
prime, Watched the Gaither show this weekend & the farewell tour of the
Statlers was on, Needless to say got me back into it, just bought the
farewell concert on Amazon & a gospel Cd,,Been you tubing all day listening
to all the music, found these boys , didn't know they were at it, & wow do
they sound good, I remember when Lew left the group , I was like OMG, the
Statlers are done. but, Jimmy had large shoes to fill & he did a mighty
fine job, he's not Lew but , he's the next best thing, & Lew thought he was
ok too, so, that was ok by me., These daddy look /sound alike guys should
continue on with music, they are good....

good harmony with a sound of their own--younger voices i guess.

Author carolinasbeauty (4 years)
These guys are great. Being a fan of The Statler Brothers for over 40 yrs,
I can pick out Harold's voice pretty easily. You can hear him at 2:36 and
at the end - unless Wil sings that part on a back track! He has a great
vocal range, so it could be him. Any info anyone?

Author daylanrayne (5 years)
LOL, not hard to see the resemblance huh? Has his father's eyes and vocal
talent too. The music matches Harold's also .. is that Liz Taylor, oh never
it wouldn't surprise me.

A fitting tribute to the Statlers. It is a shame there is no room in
country music for acts like the Statlers any more. They truly were one of
the greatest.

I saw Grandstaff at the Ernest Tubb Midnight Jamboree in May. It was
awesome. They had Jimmy Fortune on the show with them and then after the
show Wil and Langdon came out and signed autographs. They sure look and
sound like their Fathers'. This sure is a great tribute song.

Statlers are one of my favorite groups, Way to go guys.

I love, love, LOVE this song and this video!!!!! Great seeing the Statlers,
country's greatest group, with so many other country greats! I especially
love the shot of them on the Mandrell sisters show and remember seeing it
when it aired originally! Wil and Langdon are fantastic, and Wil not only
LOOKS like his dad Harold, but has his sense of humor, too!

What a great song and a really great tribute to the best group ever to
sing. GREAT job.

Author mepeg924 (2 years)
Yes, they do sound just like their fathers, and created a tribute song that
sounds like something their fathers would write. Always loved the Statler
Brothers. Glad to hear the Statler music talent has been handed down. Hope
they keep going as long as their dads did!

This is a fabulous song, by a couple of fabulous singers! I guess it's in

will always be the greatest in my mind!!!!
