– Bluegrass label Mountain Home inked Mississippi band Breaking Grass.
Mountain Fever will release the band's first single on the label, written by guitarist Cody Farrar, in April with a full album of all original music to follow in early summer. This will be the third CD from the band in three years.
The band is Farrar on guitar; Tyler White on fiddle; Thelton Vanderford on banjo; Zach Wooten on mandolin; and Britt Sheffield on bass.
"Since their first recording in 2011, I've been a fan of this band," said Mountain Fever founder Mark Hodges. "They can play, they can sing, and they have great stage presence. With ages ranging from 17 to 56, they display an amazing professionalism on the stage and in the studio. I can't wait for the world to hear this new record. It's more SteelDrivers and StringDusters than it is Lester and Earl.... they have their own easily recognizable sound, and we're looking to a long future with these guys."
