Carter Stanley's EyesCharlottesville, VA -- Peter Rowan was just a young bluegrass boy when he caught the attention of Bill Monroe, who made him an actual Blue Grass Boy in 1963, or maybe '64.

Within a few months, Stanley would be gone, but the impact he and his brother, Ralph, had on Rowan—and the world—would grow even stronger. He acknowledges their influence, and finally gives the story of that meeting a definitive telling, with his new Rebel Records album, Carter Stanley's Eyes.
