So far, 2016 has started off pretty well for High Valley. We named them one of our 2016 Hot Artists to Watch, they've been touring, working on an album and enjoying watching fans sing along to their songs. The duo stopped by ToC Nights and opened up about their good fortune and what's to come.

High Valley, also known as Brad and Curtis Rempel, have a new single out called "Make You Mine," and the duo are hitting the road a lot this summer (even playing Country Jam), calling it a "lot of fun." Now that fans are really hearing their music, they're noticing the fans are singing back to them.

“We’re excited when we get to look out and see people singing our single back to us, that’s definitely the coolest part of touring,” Brad gushes in the studio. “It’s starting to take off, and every time we’re blown away when it happens. It’s a great feeling. We’re not getting sick of it any time soon.”

They're currently working on an album, and spending lots of time finding the right tracks.

“We’re listening to songs every day and Brad’s writing like crazy. We’re about to go in the studio next week," Curtis explains.

Brad adds, "Every week you’re always working on new music, whether your’e working on a record technically or not … it’s a really great, creative city.”

"Make You Mine," is available on iTunes to tide fans over until their album drops.

Sam Alex is the host of Taste of Country Nights radio, a syndicated night show which airs on more than 60 Townsquare Media Group stations nationwide.
