Today (5/14) marks the release of Stormy Horizons, a new CD project from The Expedition Show, on Mountain Fever Records.
Fans can hear the entire record this week on Sirius-XM’s Track-by-Track with Kyle Cantrell, starting on Wednesday (5/15) at 11:00 a.m. (EDT). The show will re-air on Thursday at 9:00 p.m. and on Sunday at 11:00 a.m. It will air on channel 61, Bluegrass Junction.
Banjo picker and founding member Blake Williams shared this quick overview of the album:
“We’ve always put great thought into providing a true listening experience with each project we’ve released through song selection and arrangements. Wayne, Alex and I all contributed original songs to this project but we’ve also reached back and recorded songs by Hank Williams, Sr. and Earl Scruggs. And the title cut was a song we’d heard Jim & Jesse do for years that was co-written by Ira Louvin. This is our 7th CD as a band and as with all of them, Tim Crouch adds some amazing fiddle and we were also honored to have our dear friend Phil Leadbetter play dobro of 3 tracks.”
The “Wayne” Blake mentioned is the band’s guitarist, Wayne Southards, and Alex is their mando man, Alex Hibbitts. Rounding out The Show is Kimberly Williams on bass.
They will be celebrating the CD release with a special concert in Rolla, MO at the Ozark Actor’s Theatre on Thursday night.
Radio programmers can download the Stormy Horizons tracks now from Airplay Direct.
