Palmer Divide formed as a band in 2004 with the single goal of not being another acoustic cover band. With their own approach to music they offer up an original flavor of acoustic music with well crafted lyrics, innovative instrumentation, and tight 3 part harmonies. Their unique yet familiar sound pulls from their deep respect of traditional acoustic roots music and well as their desire to create a modern acoustic voice that is all their own.
Individually their resumes include such highlights as; multiple performances at the White House, the Grand Ole Opry, and The Nashville Network. Awards include winning the SPBGMA Mandolin Player of the Year, the Deer Creek Fiddlers Convention Dobro competition, and the Rockygrass Bluegrass Band competition with Black Rose.
Palmer Divide's featured songwriter, Jody Adams, has tunes being featured on CMT, MTV, Access Hollywood, A&E, Fox Sports, the WB Network, ESPN, as well as, having written the theme song for Bill Bennett's Radio Show ”Morning in America”. Several of his songs have also been featured on NBC’s hit “Friday Night Lights.”
Collectively they have appearing in both Bluegrass Unlimited and Bluegrass Now magazines, and have had two of their Prime Cuts of Bluegrass singles worked into daily rotation on Sirius/XM's Bluegrass Junction. They were as "In-Studio" feature band on Sirius/XM Studios Bluegrass Junction with Kyle Cantrell for the month of December.
