2012 | Country Album of the Year | High Valley | | The JUNO Awards

It’s that one-two punch of powerful songs and potent performances that makes High Valley one of the most impressive new acts on today’s competitive country scene. The Canadian-born siblings grew up in Alberta on a farm in the rural community of La Crete. They’ve opened shows for Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, LeAnn Rimes and Reba McEntire, earning a solid reputation as a must-see live act. High Valley’s self-titled new album is a collection that is both entertaining and thought-provoking. It’s an album that will make listeners want to roll down the windows and let the soaring sibling harmonies wash over them while the lyrics will likely prompt some soul searching about relationships and priorities. “We wanted a mixture of feel good tunes and we wanted faith-based songs as well,” says Brad of meeting with Nashville’s top writers and publishers to cull the best material for the record. “We wanted to stay clear of any negative songs about families being torn apart. We wanted to record songs that would be great for the whole family.”
