Breaking Grass – 100 Degrees in the Shade

Mountain Fever Records has a new single today for Mississippi’s Breaking Grass, the first from their upcoming fourth album with the label.

It’s one written by guitarist and lead vocalist Cody Farrar called 100 Degrees in the Shade, which if you’ve ever spent time outdoors in Mississippi during the summer, you know is a real thing. Cody has fashioned a nice prison break song which he says just makes sense for the man in the story.

“Imagine busting rock on a chain gang in the blazing Mississippi heat. If you see a way out, you’d be hard-pressed not to take it. We’re proud to present 100 Degrees In The Shade as our new single and hope you’ll enjoy hearing it as much as we enjoyed making it. Special thanks to the great Randy Kohrs for providing dobro on this track.”

He is supported by bandmates Zach Wooten on mandolin, Britt Sheffield on bass, Jody Elmore on banjo, and Tyler White on fiddle. Wooten and Sheffield add harmony vocals.

100 Degrees in the Shade is available now from popular download and streaming sites online. Radio programmers will find the track at AirPlay Direct.
