Lonesome River Band “Come On Down From the Mountaintop”
Americana Highways brings you this premiere of Lonesome River Band’s song “Come On Down From the Mountaintop,” from their forthcoming album, Heyday. The album was produced by Lonesome River Band; recorded, mixed, and mastered by Van Atkins, with photos by Sandlin Gaither Photography.
“Come On Down From the Mountaintop,” is Adam Miller on lead vocals and mandolin; Jesse Smathers on vocals and guitar; Sammy Shelor on banjo; Mike Hartgrove on fiddle; and Kameron Keller on upright bass. The music is merry and bright, with hints of mournful loneliness: “You left me for the city life, and now you’re living high, you left me here, just walked away, didn’t even say good-bye.” And now he’s lonely as can be. Catchy bluegrass flurry.
“Come On Down From The Mountain Top” is a song sent to us by Eddie Sanders, a great singer/songwriter from McAlester, Oklahoma. He and Glen Duncan had written this song and when I heard it, it had the Old Time Music feel that we love to play and it fit Adam Miller’s vocal style to a tee! It was a blast to record — and more fun to do live! — Sammy Shelor
