Nashville, TN (April 4, 2018) – SIDELINE is taking the charts by storm with their latest single release, “Thunder Dan.”  The track has proven enormously popular with radio and listeners alike, debuting this week at #1 on the Bluegrass Today Monthly Chart, sitting at #4 on the Bluegrass Today Weekly Chart, and holding the #5 spot on the HotDisc International Chart.  The song is also one of Sirius XM’s Bluegrass Junction Most-Played Tracks, and a companion video is currently airing on The Country Network.  The tune’s mid-tempo groove and compelling lyric conjure up dark thoughts and a dim future for a backwoods loner but prove irresistible for Bluegrass lovers.  “Thunder Dan” is the first release from SIDELINE’s April 27 album, FRONT AND CENTER (Mountain Home Music), which is available for pre-order now.  
“We are thrilled with how folks have responded to this record,” admits Steve Dilling, banjo player for SIDELINE.  “At its heart are all the hallmarks of a classic Bluegrass song and we just love it; we’re happy other folks feel the same.”

SIDELINE will be working hard to keep folks happy this spring, as they bring old favorites – and new music from FRONT AND CENTER – to a mix of venues that includes an album release celebration hosted by Mountain Home Music:

A pedigreed six-piece powerhouse that has set the pace in Bluegrass for over two decades, SIDELINE was founded by Steve Dilling (banjo), Skip Cherryholmes (guitar) and Jason Moore (bass).  The three have all made historical and significant contributions to the genre as members of highly-awarded groups, with multiple Grand Ole Opry appearances, and years of global touring behind them.  What started as a side project for these seasoned players soon expanded as the core members were joined by Bailey Coe (guitar) and Troy Boone (mandolin).  Newcomer Daniel Greeson replaced longtime bandmember Nathan Aldridge on fiddle in 2018.  With songs that range from pulse-pounding barn burners to those sung from the heart, this sextet brings perfected timing and dynamic – as well as visceral emotion – to their music.  With three previous successful album releases, audiences have found that whether live or recorded, the group moves easily from well-chosen, neo-traditional covers to new material curated with a holistic sense of identity and mission.  Add their on-stage energy and powerful harmonies to the mix, and you have the best of the revered Carolina ‘Grass sound.
