Steep Canyon Rangers - "Blow Me Away"
<p>In the 2015 <em>No Depression</em> print magazine that'll ship this fall, our own Stacy Chandler digs into the story of the Steep Canyon Rangers, as it has led them to their new album <em>RADIO</em> (due next month). But first, to whet your palate, here's an exclusive premiere of the new single from that disc.</p> <p>And, from the press release:</p> <blockquote>Grammy Award-winning Steep Canyon Rangers’ highly anticipated new album, RADIO, will be released August 28 on Rounder Records and can now be pre-ordered via Amazon. Produced by Jerry Douglas (John Oates, Alison Krauss, Béla Fleck), the album’s title track recently premiered on The Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy blog. Of the track, The Wall Street Journal comments, "Led by bright fiddle and tight, interlocking harmony vocals, the track is a wide-eyed tribute to the magic of discovering music over the airwaves, with sly references to other songs salted into the lyrics."

In addition, the band is currently in the midst of a widespread U.S. tour including dates in Telluride, CO, Boulder, CO, Charleston, SC, Raleigh, NC, New York City and Washington, DC.

Additionally, the band has entered a partnership with Oskar Blues Brewery and their <a href="http://www.oskarblues.com/oskar-blues-flood-relief-fund/">CAN’d Aid Foundation</a> for a performance at the Oskar Blues Grill and Brew on July 27 in Lyons, CO.</blockquote>
