Christian Country Band Trio HIGH VALLEY Wins Five GMA Covenant Awards



Canadian Christian band trio, High Valley, won 5 big awards at the recent GMA Covenant Awards in Canada. High Valley won five categories that included: Group of the Year, Artist of the Year, Country/Bluegrass Song of the Year (“The Father’s Love”), Country/Bluegrass Album of the Year (High Valley), and Video of the Year (“A Father’s Love”).

“I’m so proud of High Valley and the Covenant awards they won recently,” says Jeff Berry, manager, Eaglemont Entertainment. “They are one of the hardest working artists out there and I’m proud to be on their team. Though they have had great success with four top 20 country singles in Canada this past year, they spent many of their early days singing in churches so it’s very special that the GMA community would honor them in this way. 

High Valley signed with Centricity Music in 2007, and the group is comprised of three brothers: Brad Rempel (lead singer/guitarist), Curtis Rempel (background vocals/mandolin), and Bryan Rempel (background vocals/bass), who hail from Alberta, Canada. Within the last year, Brad has moved to Nashville with his wife and two children and is becoming a well-known songwriter in the country music community, having co-written with such high-profile writers as Rivers Rutherford (“When I Get To Where I’m Going,” “Real Good Man”) and Casey Beathard (“No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problems,” “Right Where I Need to Be”). High Valley’s video for “On The Combine” just went into rotation at CMT Pure Country and is part of the fan voting for Pure 12-Pack Countdown each week. The group has garnered quite a loyal fan following in Canada, and now also in the states, where they have played festivals/concerts with such superstars as Carrie Underwood, Reba McEntire, and Michael W. Smith. They played their first concert at CMA Music Fest last year on the Hard Rock outdoor stage to a tremendous response from the crowd.
