The guys of country band High Valley are on their way to Red Deer for a show slated for Nov. 10th at the Memorial Centre. Their newest release, Dear Life, comes out Nov. 18th so fans will be able to hear a slew of tunes from that project at the show, along with a generous selection of past hits.
According to a release, the CD marks brothers Brad and Curtis Rempel’s major label album debut.
The highly anticipated project will also feature the Top 30 and climbing at radio hit Make You Mine.
Written by Brad along with Ben Stennis and producer Seth Mosley, the high-energy track has already garnered more than 3.6 million streams and over 1.7 million views of its official music video.
High Valley and Make You Mine are catching the attention of the critics too, already having been named ‘Artist To Watch’ by Taste of Country, CMT, Spotify and ‘Country Song of the Summer’ by Billboard.
The guys hail from the tiny community of La Crete in northern Alberta.
Growing up on a 1,400-acre farm with music, farming and family as the basis of their entertainment, the Rempel’s musical language was formed at a very young age.
When they started out, the brothers booked gigs anywhere they could, playing cover songs to audiences of about 100 to 200 people. The guys also grew up in a musical home, so following a path in the industry seemed the natural course to take.
That included performances at festivals, lots of singing at church and at community events over the years.
Their debut Broken Borders was named Album of the Year at the 2007 GMA Canada Covenant Awards, while the song Back to You was awarded Country Song of the Year.
They met with almost instant success. Their second album, High Valley, was released in Canada and the United States in 2010.
In 2011 the band won five GMA Canada Covenant Awards, including Artist of the Year and Group of the Year. Their third CD, Love Is a Long Road, was released in June of 2012.
Throughout their career so far, High Valley has earned many accolades including several aforementioned GMA Canada Covenant Awards, multiple CCMA Awards and Juno Award nominations and the 2013 CCMA Award for Interactive Artist of the Year.
They’ve also opened up for several major acts including Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Little Big Town, Alan Jackson, Reba McEntire and Shania Twain.
