After releasing four Top Ten Billboard albums, North Carolina based Nu-Blu, has established themselves as one of the top acoustic acts in the music industry. Delivering songs ranging from melancholy to exuberant, their music has a knack for finding its way into one’s heart and soul.
Over the years, they’ve turned many heads, garnering major headlines with their George Jones inspired tribute single “Jesus and Jones” featuring Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer ‘Soul Man’ Sam Moore (of the iconic duo Sam and Dave). The award-winning band has made appearances on Fox News and had their music featured on CBS “Sunday Morning.” Recently they have moved into the role of helping bring Bluegrass to the masses, serving as the permanent host of the nationally-syndicated TV show “Bluegrass Ridge,” which airs in 160 million homes worldwide.
With a style all their own, Mountain Highway is an authentic young family band steeped in traditional bluegrass and gospel music, made famous by icons like Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, and Ralph Stanley. The band is composed of four sibling singers who play banjo, fiddle, mandolin, and guitar, and their father on upright bass. The group is often heralded for its tight family harmony.
After seeing them perform in Nashville, Debra Jean Wagoner said, “I had chill bumps. Their music transported me back to the days when my father Porter Wagoner took me to hear bluegrass at the Ryman Auditorium.”
Mountain Highway hails from Lynchburg, Virginia, but travels extensively to perform with notable appearances at the Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver Festival, HoustonFest/Galax, Jerusalem Ridge Celebration, Old Dominion Barn Dance, and the Wind Gap Bluegrass Festival.
