Mountain HeartNashville, TN -- Compass Records is excited to announce the addition of Mountain Heart, the award-winning newgrass band, to its roster. The 5-piece band has been known for cutting-edge excellence in acoustic music circles since its inception in 1999. Widely known throughout the music industry for continually pushing the boundaries of bluegrass inspired roots music, the band has gained legions of loyal fans as a result of their superlative musicianship and constant touring.

Now, they have further broadened their sound by adding the expert fiddle talents of Molly Cherryholmes. With five GRAMMY nominations under her belt, Molly is a revered fiddle player, as well as an accomplished singer, and she fits right in to a band comprised of top pros in every position.

Mountain Heart has unmatched energy and a keen sense of entertainment dynamics, both of which have helped them forge a unique sound and stage show that appeals to an ever-growing variety of musical tastes.

Mountain Heart has been nominated for GRAMMY, ACM, and CMA awards, and has won multiple IBMA awards. They've appeared on the stage of The Grand Ole Opry over 130 times and have shared the stage with acts ranging from Punch Brothers, The Avett Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Yonder Mountain String Band, Merle Haggard, George Jones and Brad Paisley, Alison Krauss, Tony Rice, Levon Helm, and John Fogerty, to name a few.

"We cannot wait for our friends and fans to hear the new Mountain Heart lineup, and we encourage you to stay tuned as we unveil national touring news as well as new details of our forthcoming release. For now, please help us welcome Molly to the Mountain Heart family!”
