Robert Frost, a notable American author, once wrote a poem called “The Road not Taken” which also doubled as an album title for country music recording artist Shenandoah in the late 80’s. Neither of these titles reflects the popularity of Western North Carolina’s hottest band “My Highway”. My Highway’s popularity has skyrocketed over the past couple of years as evidenced by over 600,000 YouTube hits as well as being a mainstay at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino.
To say these guys are country would be an understatement. Truth is they were born and raised in the Great Smoky Mountains where moonshine stills, hard work, and living week to week isn’t a way of life, it is life! Each member of My Highway was weaned on Waylon, faced their trials with Tritt, and searched their souls with Skynyrd. My Highway has been part of Shinefest, a Moonshine Festival at the popular Western North Carolina resort, Fontana Village, for the last three years, and shared the stage with artists such as, Blackberry Smoke, The Black Lillies, Jim Lauderdale, Dean Dillon, Matt Stillwell, Ira Dean, Chase Rice, The Dirty Guvna's and many more, They have also been featured on 13 WLOS " ABC Asheville" Earlie Addition, and played to a viewing audience of 500,000. My Highway is featured monthly at the Essence, Harrah's Cherokee Casino, one of Billboards top 20 casino nightclubs, which has led to performing several afterpartys for major artists, Ronnie Milsap, Big & Rich, The Band Perry, and Sara Evans to name a few. My Highway is a well known band, performing today's country covers, with yesterdays classics, but they also are establishing themselves as a artist also. Josh Beasley and Josh Lane, are members of BMI, and have written several songs. One of there newest songs titled "Carolina Moonshine", will be featured on the popular television series Moonshiners on the Discovery Channel, Season Two, fall 2012, and they are excited to reach a broader audience, by being seen & heard on national television. Weather playing an intimate acoustic show, to playing to a crowd of several thousand, My Highway is confident to connect to there audience, and let the listener escape, and feel like they are part of the show.
As for their sound, it’s real, raw, country, with a splash of southern rock. And their tempo, wide open! This bunch empty’s the tank every time they step on stage. Coming to a show? If so, be prepared to “Turn it up!” which happens to be an original song on their self-produced album from 2011. They look forward to seeing you soon!
