New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Appalachian Road Show, the "roots supergroup" (NPR) comprised of GRAMMY®-nominated and IBMA-winning artists, will release its new album 'Jubilation' on October 7th via Billy Blue Records. 'Jubilation' follows Appalachian Road Show's 'Tribulation' album, which NPR's WPLN called a "masterpiece," and it continues the band's tradition of reviving centuries-old Appalachian storytelling that has shaped American culture. The album's first single "Blue Ridge Mountain Baby" is out now.

'Jubilation' features 13-tracks of barn-burning instrumental runs, songs inspired by the Civil War and America's barn dance eras, and music influenced by greats from Tony Rice, Flatt and Scruggs, and 8-string fiddle pioneer Benny Martin to Bob Dylan and Led Zeppelin.

Appalachian Road Show enlisted GRAMMY®-winning engineer Shani Gandhi (Sarah Jarosz, Sierra Hull, Mandolin Orange), songwriter Tim Stafford (Alison Krauss and Union Station), musicians Stuart Duncan (Yo-Yo Ma, George Strait, Reba) and IBMA Fiddle Player of the Year Award-winner Ron Stewart, and the queen of Appalachia herself, Dolly Parton, who narrates the album's introduction "In Time, Jubilation."

Dolly Parton says of 'Jubilation':
"I am very proud and honored to even know such a wonderful group as the Appalachian Road Show. They're wonderful singers, wonderful musicians, and above all that, wonderful human beings. I was honored to have them sing on my last album 'Run, Rose, Run.' I hope to do more with them in the future. I'm very excited, as I'm sure you will be, for their new album 'Jubilation.'"

What other musicians are saying:
"'Jubilation' just SCREAMS good times and is at once theatrical, soulful, tasteful, rowdy, and powerfully emotional! A wonderful new album… I'm a fan" - Mason Via (Old Crow Medicine Show)
"This album is electric! Appalachian Road Show is the real authentic deal." - Jenee Fleenor (3x CMA Musician of the Year)
"From the first notes of Blue Ridge Mountain Baby to the last words of Brother Green, Appalachian Road Show grabs you by the heart and never lets go! This is a deep record with thirteen tracks and not a filler in the bunch. Flawlessly played and soulfully sung." - Tammy Rogers (SteelDrivers)

Here's what critics have said of the previous record:
"an album full of traditional songs about hardship and heartache" - NPR All Things Considered
"fierce and versatile" - American Songwriter
"perfectly speaks to our dark and unsettling times" - Folk Alley
"A rare treat in today's genre-diverse landscape" -

Appalachian Road Show, who tied Billy Strings for the most IBMA Award wins last year (Instrumental Group of the Year and New Artist of the Year), will perform shows around the country through 2022 into 2023, including several festival performances.
