Mountain Fever Records is proud to announce the new bluegrass single release, “Pike County Jail” written and performed by Dave Adkins. The song is now available for purchase at iTunes and to radio programmers at AirplayDirect.com.
“Pike County Jail” will appear on Adkins’ new solo album, NOTHIN TO LOSE scheduled for release early 2014.
“Dave Adkins and the folks at Mountain Fever have overdone themselves with Pike County Jail!!! The pickers are top shelf and the song (written by Dave) has excellent lyrics, perfect timing, gut wrenching vocals, and something a lot of ‘prison songs’ don’t have – optimism. If there is such a category, it would be a happy jail song. Can’t wait for the unleashing of this killer tune! Bluegrass fans, get ready!!!!!!” – Buddy Michaels host of Hometown Festival Radio, @WBAG/WKRX/WLHC/WLQC and http://www.buddymichaels.com
What a breath of fresh air! Dave Adkins brings a fresh soulful sound and attitude to the bluegrass world. “Pike County Jail” the new single reflects that perfectly. He brings it with total effort and I can’t wait to see what the future brings with Dave Adkins! I promise this is GREAT STUFF!” – Gene Skinner, Great Stuff Radio
“The new single from Dave Adkins on Mountain Fever Records delivers a good dose of traditional bluegrass. Pike County Jail has all the elements of a great bluegrass song….prison, moonshine, redemption, love, babies and new beginnings. Dave Adkins steps out with this one proving he can sing traditional bluegrass with the best of them.” – Judith Burnette, The Blue Ridge Backroads Show, WBRF, Galax, VA
