It’s been a wide river to cross for Balsam Range.
Last year’s Bluegrass Song of the Year winners have tasted success, faced a potential demise, started a community from their fan base and created groundbreaking ways to get their music out. Now they top it all by delivering the best music of their career to date.

Introducing Papertown, Balsam Range’s fourth release on Mountain Home Music.
The album is a direct reflection of the events of the band’s last year, from winning the IBMA’s Bluegrass Song of the Year award for the song “Trains I Missed,” to a near fatal injury for lead singer Buddy Melton.   As a result of these events, the band responded to an outpouring of support and joined with fans to create the community movement known as Balsam Nation whose ideals are reflected in the new album.

Papertown is a perfect mix of stellar tunes from award winning writers such as Carl Jackson, Jerry Salley, and Shawn Camp, as well as grassed up versions of familiar songs from the Allman Brothers and others. Add the band’s gospel cuts and a soulful version of Buddy and Julie Miller’s “Wide River to Cross,” and this album will appeal to a wide range of musical tastes.
