Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road (Feat. Eddy Raven), ‘I Got Mexico’ Music Video [Exclusive Premiere]
Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road teamed up with country singer Eddy Raven to re-record his 1984 hit "I Got Mexico," and they're premiering a brand-new video performance of the song exclusively for The Boot's readers.
"I Got Mexico," the first single from Raven's I Could Use Another You record, first hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts in June of 1984. The song was co-written by Raven and Frank J. Myers. It was Raven's first No. 1 hit and spent a total of 13 weeks in the Top 40 on the country charts.
Jordan and her band included this new version of the tune on their latest record, Country Grass, which was released in June. The video, which you can watch above, features the whole gang performing the lively song, and from the smiles on everyone's faces, they had a good time doing it. Raven and Josh Goforth, Carolina Road's fiddle player, trade off lead vocals, and the bluegrass influences will have listeners bobbing their heads and tapping their feet.
“It was so great working with Eddy! It was such a great fit," Jordan tells The Boot. "I was surprised when I learned that he’s always been a bluegrass fan, so that made it even better."
Jordan is known as the “Lady of Tradition” in bluegrass, fronting Carolina Road for over 15 years. Among her bandmates are some of the top musicians in country and bluegrass music: Ben Greene (banjo), Goforth, Jason Moore (bass) and Brad Hudson (dobro).
Jordan & Carolina Road's Country Grass is available on iTunes. In addition to Raven, the disc features collaborations with John Conlee, Crystal Gayle, Lee Greenwood, Jim Ed Brown, TG Sheppard and more.
