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 700,000 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 Skynard. Josh Beasley and Josh Lane, are members of BMI, and are accopplished songwriters. One of there newest songs titled "Carolina Moonshine", was filmed for Moonshiners season2, with our Moonshiner friends! 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.
