Kathy Mattea, the beloved Grammy-winning singer of such classics as “18 Wheels and A Dozen Roses” and “Where’ve You Been,” has signed with Sugar Hill Records. The label has plans to release Calling Me Home, what Mattea describes as a love letter to her home state of West Virginia, later this year.

“Signing at Sugar Hill is like coming home. It’s a wonderful fit for the music I am making these days, and I’m so excited to be there,” says Mattea, whose latest release Coal was a rootsy tribute to the mining traditions of Appalachia.

Country Music Legend Don Williams to release "And So It Goes" on June 19th

 

don williams and so it goes

 

Sugar Hill Records is both humbled and incredibly proud to release Don Williams first new album in 8 years.  Don Williams’ legions of fans across the globe have long been hoping, but likely not expecting to hear new recordings from him again. He has been pretty determined to spend most of his time on his Tennessee farm, quietly, with his family— and for over four decades, country music’s “Gentle Giant” has been known for doing what he wants to do. So it’s both exciting and a very welcome surprise to announce the release of the brand new Don Williams album And So It Goes, on Sugar Hill Records on June 19th!!

Black Prairie to release limited-edition 7-inch in celebration of Record Store Day 2012

Limited edition release features guest performances from James Mercer (Shins, Broken Bells) and Sallie Ford (Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside)

Sugar Hill Records is excited to announce the release of Singers, Volume 1: Portland, a limited edition 7-inch vinyl record from Portland, Oregon-based Black Prairie in celebration of Record Store Day – April 21st, 2012. When Black Prairie formed, part of their vision was to become a backing band for singers.  To quote dobroist Chris Funk, “As Dylan nor Neil Young have yet to make that call into the home office,”  Black Prairie decided to surge forward with their own series of EPs, backing singers from different parts of the country and different walks of musical life.  The first will focus on singers who call the city of Portland, Oregon home, kicking off with tracks from James Mercer (Shins/Broken Bells) and Sallie Ford (Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside), which will each comprise a side on the 7-inch Record Store Day release.  The full EP, set for release in the spring, will feature Langhorne Slim, The Minus 5, folk legend Michael Hurley, Caleb Klauder from The Foghorn String Band and Luz Elena Mendoza from Y La Bamba.

Following the Singers project, the band has plans to release a full-length LP, their second for the Sugar Hill label, in the fall of 2012. Grammy-nominated producer Tucker Martine is at the helm and the LP will feature more gorgeous vocals from Annalisa Tornfelt as well as full drums and a few surprise guests.

Marty Stuart To Release Nashville, Volume 1: Tear The Woodpile Down – April 24th on Sugar Hill Records

Stuart celebrates 40 years in music city proving that “The most outlaw thing you can do in Nashville, Tennessee today is to play Country Music”

GRAMMY-winner and American music icon Marty Stuart will release his second album for Sugar Hill Records entitled Nashville, Volume 1: Tear The Woodpile Down on April 24th.  The ten song collection, almost entirely written by Marty, features his touring band of musical missionaries The Fabulous Superlatives.  Nashville staples Buck Trent, Kenny Lovelace, and Robbie Turner are joined by country music royalty Hank Williams III and Lorrie Carter Bennett (The Carter Family) on harmony vocals to fill out the cast. 

Marty Stuart arrived in Nashville on Labor Day weekend, 1972.  “I came to Nashville from the land of Jimmie Rodgers, looking for a place, a place to belong inside the world of country music.  It was a country boy Hollywood, the air castle of the South, a dream factory.”  40 years, a decade worth of hits and a full round of hillbilly stardom later, Stuart has hillbilly rocked himself back to the bosom of traditional country music.

Pre-sale info on Nashville, Volume 1: Tear The Woodpile Down will be announced soon!
