Expect June Release from IBMA Album of the Year Band - BALSAM RANGE!

PRESCRIPTON BLUEGRASS IMAGE  - BALSAM RANGE COVER ART2013 IBMA Album of the Year  (PAPERTOWN) winner, Balsam Range, returns with the band’s appropriately-titled fifth album.

FIVE is set for release on June 17th.

Bluegrass Broadcaster Chris Fullerton says he likes the album enough that he's played his advance copy of FIVE so much he "knows it backwards now".

In the wake of PAPERTOWN’S success,  expectations have been high.
"Papertown was received so well that we were a little anxious about what we could do next," said Tim Surrett, vocalist and bass player for the band. "How do we follow an Album of the Year? We finally just went in there and made the best record we could and had some fun."

Mountain Home Recording artists founded in 2007, Balsam Range has made a definite mark in the Bluegrass and Acoustic music world. 
The band's 2010 release TRAINS I MISSED brought in a #1 hit and Bluegrass Song of the Year award for its title track.

PAPERTOWN (2012) built on that momentum with five consecutive months as the #1 album on Bluegrass radio, and won the 2013 IBMA Album of the Year award.
The band has a consistent knack for conveying emotion with power. The result is a heartfelt delivery of tributes to working class heroes, an original Gospel a cappella song, a driving instrumental, and even a John Denver classic. The group draws from diverse influences and original sources while giving each track the Balsam Range treatment.
