Seth Taylor – A North Carolina native. He won numerous contests including first prize on guitar at the 2008 Merlefest. He co-founded the band Monroeville and joined Mountain Heart in 2012. Nashville band Mountain Heart reboots itself on Blue Skies, its first album in five years, blending Americana with deft bluegrass and folk sounds. With a revamped lineup, including Molly Cherryholmes of Cherryholmes on fiddle. Perhaps start somewhere familiar, like with the band’s cover of „Maggie’s Farm,“ and then branch out into original tunes like the full speed ahead instrumental „The Bad Grounds“ or the jaunty piano-powered „Can’t Get Over You.“

Lead vocalist Josh Shilling told Rolling Stone Country about the song from their upcoming album. „It’s soulful and grooves like The Allman Brothers or the Grateful Dead, it’s a song we can jam on as well as send to radio. It’s hip with elements of gospel and JamGrass roots, it allows us all to stretch out vocally, and most of all, it delivers an inspiring and uplifting message — one that we all live by.“
