Mountain Heart is featured in a current news story on CMT.com. The story focuses on the production of their newest album, Wide Open. This CD marks new territory for the band as they hired producer Mark Bright. Bright has produced such country acts as Racal Flatts, Dee Messina, and Carrie Underwood. The band was looking for a different sound, something large and impressive that could compete with country music on the radio, but still maintain it’s bluegrass purity.
Gulley says, “Mark asked us to do a lot of things we probably weren’t comfortable with doing musically, but we did them anyway because we trusted him. That’s a big, big, big thing to have somebody who hears everything exactly like you’re thinking it.”
