Bluegrass Master Richard Bennett Drops 'In The Wind Somewhere' May 27

It's one thing for an artist to feel like his latest musical endeavor is his best, but when you're a music veteran with a mile-long resume, decades of recording and performing experience, critical acclaim, and more recordings than one can count, it's quite a statement to say, "This is my favorite record I've ever done."
