Will the Circle Be Unbroken is a continuation of the great music that I get to be a part of with these talented guys who are family to me,” says Isaacs. “I love taking the songs that we grew up on and have loved for so long and re-introducing them in our style. Jimmy, Mike and Bradley are singing better than ever, and we are excited to share this project with you.”
