Tuttle rides her "Next Rodeo"

Thursday, June 1, 2023 – Molly Tuttle and her band, Golden Highway is debuting "Next Rodeo" today. The track is the second unveiled from Tuttle's new album, "City of Gold," out July 21 via Nonesuch Records.

"This ain't my first rodeo," said Tuttle. "I've spent most of my adult life playing shows all around the world, and my new single 'Next Rodeo' reflects the miles I've put in with my band. We played 100-plus shows over the past year, which led to recording...City of Gold.' 'Next Rodeo' feels like a fitting metaphor for my second Golden Highway record. Going back to my bluegrass roots has felt both nostalgic and brand new, and this song encapsulates my feelings as I look back on a great year and look ahead to another one full of new places, people and songs."

In addition to Tuttle (vocals, acoustic guitar), Jerry Douglas (Dobro) and Golden Highway—Bronwyn Keith-Hynes (fiddle, harmony vocals), Dominick Leslie (mandolin), Shelby Means (bass, harmony vocals) and Kyle Tuttle (banjo, harmony vocals)— "City of Gold" also features special guest Dave Matthews on "Yosemite."

The new album follows Tuttle's 2022 record, "Crooked Tree," which won Best Bluegrass Album at the 65th Annual GRAMMY Awards.

The track list is:
1. El Dorado
2. Where Did All the Wild Things Go?
3. San Joaquin
4. Yosemite (featuring Dave Matthews)
5. Next Rodeo
6. When My Race Is Run
7. Alice in the Bluegrass
8. Stranger Things
9. Down Home Dispensary
10. More Like a River
11. Goodbye Mary
12. Evergreen, OK
13. The First Time I Fell in Love

Tuttle will also be on TV. "Molly Tuttle and Golden Highway: Live in Nashville"—a special concert event filmed earlier this year—will air on PBS starting this Saturday.

The band will also tour through this summer including dates supporting Dierks Bentley, Greensky Bluegrass, Charley Crockett and Marcus King, as well as festival appearances at Bonnaroo, Railbird Music Festival, Under the Big Sky Festival and the Edmonton Folk Festival.

CD review - City of Gold Arguably the most interesting and versatile bluegrass band working the circuit, Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway, her touring band, return for their second album together. Unlike the preceding Grammy Award-winning "Crooked Tree," "City of Gold" is truly a band album with limited guest appearances. By featuring the musicians experienced during her live performances, this is a wide-ranging but entirely cohesive and spectacular recording. Rich in story, this is a true modern ...
CD review - Crooked Tree Not long ago, we were listening to Molly Tuttle on small, independent labels and now, less than four years later she is making her debut on the prestigious Nonesuch label with "Crooked Tree." Tuttle, a graduate of Berklee College of Music and brilliant multi-award-winning finger picking guitarist, straddled the line between bluegrass and Americana in her 2019 "When You're Ready" and on an album of rock, pop and country covers in 2020. To date, she's tried to veer from ...
CD review - When You're Ready One of the most celebrated acoustic guitarists working within the Americana field, Molly Tuttle is two-time International Bluegrass Music Association Guitarist of the Year, the first female to be so honored. "When You're Ready" is Tuttle's first full-fledged solo album, having previously recorded an EP ("Rise"), albums with both the Tuttles and The Goodbye Girls, and a long-ago recording with her father, Jack ("The Old Apple Tree"). ...
