Shannon Slaughter says, "Goin' Up The Mountain" is the first single from my upcoming release "Ridin' Through The Country" on Elite Circuit Records. This is my 10th year as a solo artist and I'm so proud of this new single. It was written by a long-time friend and co-writer Chris Burton from Virginia and me. The tune's hook is a commonly used phrase from VA/NC/KY/TN area when folks are leaving the flatland headed up to the high country. It really spoke to me and reminded me of my younger years living in Radford, VA and Meadows of Dan, VA.
All the musicians really nailed the track! This was my first time tracking with Adam and Jason, and we had a ball. Shawn lent his talents to the harmony and really showcased his ability to own the solo artist's music. Cliff and Aubrey's talents speak for themselves.
I think everyone is gonna love this new tune and I'm so happy to get some new music back out!!
“It was a real treat to get to be a part of this new project that Shannon has put together. He always finds or writes songs that seem to resonate with me. This is another in a long line of terrific tunes he’s recorded that I think is just killer. I believe you will too!” ~ Adam Steffey
