Turlock, CA (March 21, 2019) —High Valley is headed to the Central Valley as the opening act for the 2019 Stanislaus County Fair.
High Valley will be performing Friday, July 12, 2019 at the Stanislaus County Fair on the Coors Light Variety Free Stage. The concert will be hosted by KAT Country 103 and will begin at 8:30 p.m. The concert is free with the price of Fair admission.
“This country duo family band is excited to share their music with our Fair guests,” said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. “It will be a fun-filled show for fans of all ages.”
Country fans are no strangers to the uncanny musical connection of a family band, but they’ve never heard anything like the duo High Valley–and that’s simply because brothers Brad, and Curtis Rempel never knew how country was “supposed” to sound. Growing up in La Crete, Alberta —more than 2,500 miles from where they now live in Music City —Brad and Curtis were completely cut off from the world of pop culture throughout their early lives. While their upbringing didn’t exactly acquaint them with the Billboard 100, it’s that insulation that helped cement their musical ideals and love of simple, classic country, allowing High Valley’s music to feel simultaneously fresh and timeless.
High Valley learned to become skilled digital citizens, building an avid fan base that is actively involved in selecting the duo’s songs through the High Valley app and connecting with each other via social media. As a result, they have amassed more than 43 million song streams worldwide –including 22 million for first single “Make You Mine. Likewise, they are the first country act to broadcast live on Twitch.TV in the United States and their song “Young Forever” scored placement on EA Sports’ Madden NFL 17 Soundtrack. The band has been selected for “Ones to Watch” recognition by Rolling Stone Country, Spotify, Pandora, CMT and Taste of Country. And they’ve been profiled on CBS This Morning for their unique and inspiring story and performed on NBC’s Today Show.
The Rempel brothers have already scored six Top 10s, three Gold certifications, played to 15,000 seat arenas opening for Shania Twain and earned multiple awards show wins –including Canadian CMA Group of the Year. And now with their major label debut, a fall tour with Martina McBride and a headlining U.K. trek on the way, it’s true that High Valley inhabit a much different world today than the one they were raised in. But some things remain the same, and that is the central theme of one of the album’s most powerful tracks, the hard-charging backroad rocker, “I Ain’t Changin’.”
The 2019 Stanislaus County Fair opens Friday, July 12th for a 10-day run. Fair guests can count on an award-winning experience that has been over 108 years in the making.
