Blue Highway – 15 years ago

Blue Highway doing their first show, December 31, 1994 - Jason Burleson, Shawn Lane, Wayne Taylor, Tim Stafford, Rob IckesWe posted earlier this year that Blue Highway was celebrating 2009 as their 15th anniversary as a band. They played their very first show on December 31, 1994, and are asking fans and friends to help them collect an anniversary album by sending along their photos of Blue Highway over the years.

Prizes are being offered for the best photo submitted each month, and some real doozies are already posted on the Blue Highway 15th Anniversary photo page. Here are a few samples…

The band is in the studio of late, finishing up some new tracks which will be included on a Rounder compilation CD, due for a release this fall. We’ll have more details about that project soon, plus news about some other exciting Blue Highway plans for 2010.
