James Dean Rose, Jr. is a Midwestern bluegrass phenomenon who has produced one of the most jaw dropping bluegrass albums around. A Goodtime and Old Timey Too is the inspiration for our radio shows name “A Good Time @BarnyardBeer”. Get it here because it is a necessary listen for the Winfield and Weston crowd.
