Overmountain Men released their sophomore effort The Next Best Thing on Ramseur Records on January 22, 2013. The album is the follow-up to their highly-acclaimed 2010 debut, Glorious Day. The band is led by legendary North Carolina songwriter David Childers, formerly of the Modern Don Juans. Some call them Americana, others call them Folk, most call them a great band.
“Southern children going forward at top volume” is truly what this little mission band born at a Bar-B-Que joint on the side of the road is. The South Carolina Broadcasters are not to be missed. From heart stompin’ love songs to rowdy gospel numbers that’ll make you shout hallelujah there is a rare beauty and honesty in the trio’s music. Ivy, Sarah, and David share a common passion that creates a sound that often amazes even them. “It’s not old-time, it’s not bluegrass, it’s The South Carolina Broadcasters!” Be it an old standard out of the hymnal or a song from their own pen, their music is alive. The trio has shared the stage with Ralph Stanley, Taj Mahal, Ricky Skaggs, and the Carolina Chocolate Drops and can be found touring the country and bringing their distinctive sound to a venue near you.
