Mountain Fever Records presents the new single, “Tend to My Flowers” from Cedar Hill, a traditional bluegrass band from the Ozark’s of Arkansas and Missouri. The smooth clear vocals by Dalton Harper, complimented by the award-winning instrumentation of the band, will transport you back in time to the sounds similar to the likes of Keith Whitley.

In February, Cedar Hill hit #2 on the Bluegrass Today Top 20 bluegrass song chart with “How Deep is the Lonesome” written by bluegrass hit songwriter Mark “Brink Brinkman” and Kevin T. Hale. Both songs are included on the band’s upcoming album, New Chapter releasing this fall on Mountain Fever Records.
