High Valley is set to release their highly anticipated brand-new album, Way Back, on May 20, 2022. The 13-song project, the group’s sixth studio album, is brimming with their signature sound of positive-minded, bluegrass-tinged country and available to pre-order/pre-save/pre-add now at https://orcd.co/hvwayback/. High Valley enlisted the help of their enthusiastic community on socials to finalize the song stack.
“Letting our fans behind the scenes of the songwriting and demo process was so much fun. We had the ‘Way Back’ album almost complete and couldn’t decide which of the most recent cowrites should make the cut, so we asked our fans to vote on our socials,” says High Valley front-man Brad Rempel. “I love knowing that this album is a collection of songs I feel very strongly about, messages I believe need to be heard, and jams that our fans literally chose themselves!”

New track, “Somebody Tell That Girl,” drops today, March 18, ahead of the May album and features Christian breakout artist Anne Wilson. The inspiring song was co-written by High Valley’s Brad Rempel along with Jason Gant and Matt Rogers and produced by Grammy-winner, Femke. Check out a behind the scenes clip for the track, HERE.
“I’ve loved Anne Wilson’s voice from the first time I heard it,” says Rempel. “The message in ‘Somebody Tell That Girl’ is so important, and it makes an even stronger statement with Anne singing it.”
“I’ve always wanted to be a part of a country song that empowers women and speaks of their worth,” shares Anne. “When Brad from High Valley asked me to be a part of this song, I just knew I had to do it. I’m deeply honored to be a small part of ‘Somebody Tell That Girl,’ and I can’t wait to see how this song impacts people. Grateful beyond measure!”
“Country Music, Girls & Trucks” is another standout collaboration on the project, and features Granger Smith. Rempel had a hand in writing all thirteen songs, adding to his growing list of credits which include outside cuts with artists such as, Trisha Yearwood, Granger Smith, Clay Walker, Lathan Warlick, Dan Tyminski, Paul Brandt, and Lindsay Ell.
