ÊRare is it that a new band hits the pavement with the force of a Nascar driver when the checkered flag is dropped on race day. But that is exactly what the Highland Travelers did when news broke earlier this year of their formation. The heat was on to get a pit crew in place that would not only support their vision, but also be willing to move quickly to make it all come together. The result is their self-titled debut album on Mountain Fever Records that clearly defines the Highland Travelers; a 12-song project that puts the pedal to the metal with taste, tone, and timing.

With Adam Steffey (mandolin), Keith Garrett (guitar), Jason Davis (banjo), Kameron Keller (bass), and Gary Hultman (dobro), the Highland Travelers, who state they like to Òstay true to our traditional grass roots while creating new, original songs, as well as putting our stamp on our classic favorites,Ó will no doubt set their chosen genre on its proverbial ear with this debut self-titled effort. The albumÕs first single, ÒThe Little TennesseeÓ (Keith Garrett and Jeff Baker), made its chart debut on Bluegrass TodayÕs Top 20 in March and has been a consistent top-performer, coming in at #1 again this week and resting at #4 for May. With compositions written by noted bluegrass songsmiths including Tim Stafford and Craig Market (ÒThatÕs All Behind Me NowÓ), Eli Johnston (ÒAlways Will BeÓ), and Josh Miller (Girl That Loved MeÓ) interspersed with country classics written by Dolly Parton (ÒKentucky GamblerÓ), Skip Ewing (ÒItÕs You AgainÓ), Faron Young and Roger Miller (ÒWorld So Full of LoveÓ), Highland Travelers does not lack in substance. Add in a couple of originals penned by band members Garrett (ÒOld Country ChurchÓ) and Davis (ÒPoplar KnobÓ), and youÕll find yourself with a catalog of future bluegrass standards.

Highland Travelers is available to fans of great music through the most popular music outlets. Radio programmers can download the album via AirplayDirect or request a digital download by emailing radio@mountainfever.com.
