Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway are back with another new single.
The band has a new album called City of Gold slated to drop on July 21st, which was produced by Tuttle and Jerry Douglas and recorded at Nashville’s Sound Emporium Studios.
If you’re unfamiliar with Tuttle and her band, they skyrocketed in the bluegrass genre last year with their album Crooked Tree, as it featured the likes of Billy Strings, Margo Price, Sierra Hull, Dan Tyminski, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Gillian Welch.
It won a Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass album, and garnered Tuttle a nomination for the all-genre Best New Artist even though she’s been tearing up the bluegrass scene for a handful of years now.
And far from this new record, they released the lead single “El Dorado,” and today, released “Next Rodeo.”
Molly says that “Next Rodeo” reflects the miles she spent on the road gaining experience and honing her craft:
“This ain’t my first rodeo – I’ve spent most of my adult life playing shows all around the world and my new single ‘Next Rodeo’ reflects the miles I’ve put in with my band.
We played 100+ shows over the past year, which led to recording our upcoming record, City of Gold. ‘Next Rodeo’ feels like a fitting metaphor for my second Golden Highway record.
Going back to my bluegrass roots has felt both nostalgic and brand new and this song encapsulates my feelings as I look back on a great year and look ahead to another one full of new places, people and songs.”
Of course, the production is super tight and flawless, and City of Gold is shaping up to be another very solid release from Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway:
