The first release in three years from North Alabama native Matt Prater comes during a time of social distancing due to the Coronavirus. Recorded in Muscle Shoals produced by Matt Prater and Donny Gullett at MSMM recording this single was to be the title of the album “New Highway”. Due to the lack of live gigs, unforeseen circumstances and inability to finish the album during this time Matt decided to release this song now as a tribute to the essential truck drivers who are still driving to keep the supplies on the shelves of America. Matt also produced a video with truck driver friends for this song as a tribute to the men and woman who drive the big rigs. Musicians include..Matt on acoustic guitar and vocals, John Macy on steel guitar, Jon Davis on drums, Jacob Greene on bass, Mike Cole on electric guitar and Donny Carpenter on fiddle. “New Highway” is making it to streaming services and digital retailers.
