Davis, High Valley dish out new sounds
Friday, March 23, 2018
– Jordan Davis of "Singles You Up" fame and High Valley are out with new discs today.
For the Louisiana-native Davis, this marks his debut. "Singles You Up" was the first single from his disc, "Home State," out today on MCA Nashville. Davis helped write the song. He has described his interests as ranging from John Prine to Sam Hunt, but adapts a more of a Hunt and Thomas-Rhett type vibe to his music.
High Valley, the Canadian duo of Brad and Curtis Rempel, is out with the seven-song EP, "High Valley: Farmhouse Sessions." They released four albums in Canada before making their U.S. debut with "Dear Life" in November 2016. The new disc, recorded in their farmhouse outside of Nashville, contains material from their U.S. debut done acoustically and has a more down home, traditional country flavor.

Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones
Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time.
That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
