What’s your favorite Christmas memory/is there a toy you received that to this day still makes you smile thinking of it?
I think it would have to be the year I got a go-cart. My dad had been locking up the shop and not letting me go near it. I was pretty upset for about three months leading up to Christmas because building things in there was one of my favorite things to do. Little did I know he was completely restoring a go-cart for me that whole time! -Daniel Routh
Laying on the floor under the Christmas tree watching the lights dance on the ceiling. Favorite gift: Cowboy Boots -Carolyn Routh

What are you thankful for this year?
I think that I’m most thankful for where I’m at in life in general. Our band is in a great place with a great team, we have lots going on and building for next year. I was just thinking the other day that while I’m always looking to the future and pressing to reach my goals, that its so necessary to be comfortable in the place where you are now. I think that allows for the most creativity to flow. -Daniel Routh
My family, my health, and the opportunity to live my dreams. -Carolyn Routh

Hailing from Siler City, NC, the textbook definition of a picturesque small southern town, Nu-Blu’s heart and soul is husband-and-wife duo Daniel and Carolyn Routh. Carolyn’s caramel-coated soprano is one of the band’s defining traits, at times a tender lullaby, at times a freight train headed straight for you, but always unwinding a surprising tale. Daniel is the group’s backbone, a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist who also handles band management. TJ Honaker on vocals and banjo, and Justin Harrison on fiddle/mandolin round out the quartet’s warm, layered, American roots sound. Together they deliver upbeat, blazing-fingers pick work just as well as gentle, heartwarming ballads, and they do it all with a natural togetherness that can’t be faked, forged over hundreds of shows on the road.
