Rural Rhythm Records is pleased to announce the new single from emerging Bluegrass artist Joe Hott. A unique blend of traditional bluegrass, gospel music and Appalachian mountain music provide the mixture that makes the 23 year old, West Virginia born Joe Hott a rare treasure on today's music scene. "Today Ain't The Day" is a new single written by Joe Hott, Eddie Sanders, Glen Duncan and Adam Egelhardt.

"Today Ain't The Day" is a song that talks about how one person in the relationship is asking for just one more day to try and work things out and think of all the reasons why they should stay together and fall in love again, but come tomorrow if nothing has changed then they may go their separate ways." Hott says. Produced by Adam Engelhardt & Glen Duncan, "Today Ain't The Day" features Hott's soulful mountain vocals accompanied by top Bluegrass veteran musicians Cody Kilby - Acoustic Guitar; Ned Luberecki - Banjo; Aubrey Haynie - Fiddle; Dennis Crouch - Upright Bass and Casey Campbell - Mandolin. "People like what's real — and that defines my music," says Joe Hott. Jerome Clark from Ramblers.NET totally agrees about the realness of Hott's music. "Without sounding in the least affected or dated, West Virginia Rail has the feeling of first-generation, post-World War II bluegrass. Call it old-soul music. It goes to the heart of traditional bluegrass' claim on our emotions. In other words, you don't get to listen casually."Hott's previous singles, "West Virginia Rail," "World of Lies," "Lonesome As Can Be" and "Cry From The Cross" all contained on his bluegrass debut album West Virginia Rail have attained strong airplay and chart success. Most notably, "Cry From The Cross" reaching #1 on the Bluegrass Today Weekly Gospel Airplay Chart and "West Virginia Rail" reaching #3 on the Bluegrass Today Weekly Airplay Chart
