Mountain Fever owner Mark Hodges says, “We’re really proud to have Mountain Faith join our family of artists here at Mountain Fever. I’ve been a fan since the first time I heard them live. Summer McMahan fronts the group and is truly one of the greatest female singers in the business. My hope is that a broader audience will begin to recognize this band. They’ve been very successful on the gospel side of bluegrass and by expanding their repertoire I know they will soon be a household name in bluegrass in general.”
