Chatham County Line – “Magic”
Listen to the new single from their upcoming album Hiyo
Chatham County Line released their second pre-release single, “Magic,” from their upcoming album, Hiyo. “Magic” brings together arpeggiated synthesizers and gently plucked banjo and highlights the band’s new sound. It’s one of the most danceable and smile-inducing tracks that CCL has ever created.
LPs include a autographed insert signed by the band!
Recorded at Asheville’s Echo Mountain, Hiyo was co-produced by Dave Wilson and Rachael Moore (Kacey Musgraves, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss), whom the band befriended during a stint serving as the backing band on the Showtime series George & Tammy, shot in Wilmington, NC. The resulting album takes Chatham County Line’s enduring sound and injects it with an adventurous spirit of discovery and vitality, incorporating synthesizers, drum machines, and more electric guitar and percussion than ever before, rounded out by Dave Wilson’s classic songwriting–rich, evocative tales of love and heartbreak, joy and sorrow, revenge and righteousness.
A roots music staple for over two decades, Chatham County Line – Dave Wilson (vocal, guitars, harmonica, synthesizer, banjo); John Teer (mandolin, fiddle, guitars, vocal); and Greg Readling (bass, pedal steel, piano, clavinet, organ, vocal) – built a devoted following on the strength of their genre-bending live show before breaking out internationally in 2003 with their self-titled debut. Since then, the band’s critically acclaimed albums have topped Billboard Bluegrass charts four times, they’ve shared the bill with the likes of Lyle Lovett and Guy Clark to The Avett Brothers and Steve Martin & Martin Short, and have collaborated with Judy Collins, Sharon Van Etten, and Jonas Fjeld.

In support of the album, the band will kick off the first leg of their U.S. tour on February 16 at the Neighborhood Theatre in Charlotte, NC, followed by a run of shows in NC, including their hometown of Raleigh, as well as Atlanta, Charleston and their fourth appearance at Merlefest, one of America’s premier roots festival in Wilkesboro, NC in April.americana, bluegrass, Chatham County Line, Hiyo, New Album, New Single
