You may not have heard Overmountain Men’s name, but you’re probably already familiar with the music of a few of the band’s members.
Bob Crawford, the bass player for The Avett Brothers, is on vocals and bass with Charlotte singer-songwriter David Childers on guitar and vocals as well. Rounding out the foursome are percussionist Robert Childers and guitar, banjo, and mandolin player Randy Saxon.
Those aren’t the only four musicians playing on The Next Best Thing, which is out today via Ramseur Records. Overmountain Men is truly a collaboration of some of the most innovative musicians of the Carolinas, featuring guest appearances from a plethora of talented friends.
You can watch Crawford and David Childers perform “Smoke and Mirrors” in the player below. The Next Best Thing is available now on iTunes.
