OPEN ROAD RECORDINGS CELEBRATES RELEASE OF NEWEST SINGLE ‘COME ON DOWN’, CONTINUING WORK WITH BAND THROUGH CURRENT ALBUM CYCLE
October 9, 2015 (Toronto, ON) – After three extremely successful albums on Open Road Recordings, the entire ORR team is proud to celebrate brother duo High Valley hitting the milestone sought by every Canadian artist – signing a major U.S. deal. It was announced yesterday that High Valley has signed with Atlantic Records/Warner Music Nashville.
This does not mark the end of the relationship between Open Road and the Rempel brothers. With the recent release of High Valley’s brand new single ‘Come On Down,’ the duo will continue to work with Canada’s #1 country music label for the duration of their most successful album to date, County Line. With three 2015 CCMA Award nominations for the album, resulting in a win for 2015 Group or Duo of the Year, this record has produced four Top Ten singles, including a Top Five hit and two back to back #1 videos on CMT for their radio hits ‘Make You Mine‘ and ‘She’s With Me‘.
“I’m very proud of Brad and Curtis for gaining the attention in the US that all determined acts strive for,” said ORR President Ron Kitchener. “We look forward to continuing to push the fantastic County Line album and their catalogue, and will enjoy watching them take over America!“
Throughout their time on Open Road, High Valley has grown to see skyrocketing success. In addition to a JUNO Award nomination, the group has seen nine CCMA Award nominations and two CCMA Award wins (2013 Interactive Artist of the Year and 2015 Group or Duo of the Year). From humble beginnings to top charting singles, Open Road Recordings is proud to have played a role in the duo’s incredible growth and is looking forward to continuing the momentum with County Line.
