Willis, VA -- After seven albums, over forty years of making music together and multiple appearances on the stage of the legendary Grand Ole Opry, The Crowe Brothers continue their tradition of providing beautifully blended harmonies with today's release of the first single titled "I've Got The Moon On My Side," written by Dixie and Tom T. Hall with Troy Engle, from their yet to be titled August release on Mountain Fever Records.
Josh and Wayne Crowe are excited for folks to hear it. "This song was sent to us from Miss Dixie and Tom T. Hall. Any time we get a song from these two, we listen and take notice. We think this song is one of the best we've heard from them and we are proud to present it to the bluegrass world as our first single from our up coming CD."
To their credit, they have received recognition from the SPBGMA association (Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America) with awards for Best Bluegrass Rhythm Guitar and Best Instrumental Band, and were nominated by IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) for Emerging Artist of the Year. In 2009, their recording of “Cindy Mae” (written by Cody Shuler), went number one on several bluegrass charts including SiriusXM. In 2011, “He Could Pick the Hound” (penned by Steve Watts), also reached the number one slot.
They were also part of The All-Star Jam – Live at Graves Mountain, which received an impressive five IBMA nominations in 2011, including a nod for Album of the Year.
The Crowe Brothers deliver soulful lead vocals, harmonies, and expert pickin' on everything they do. Mountain Fever's owner Mark Hodges is a fan. "These guys are first class all the way. Traditional bluegrass is represented at its best by these guys. We are excited to add them to the roster as it solidifies our commitment to the music."
