Sister Hazel Announces New Album Before The Amplifiers 2 Out December 10

“Your Winter” Premieres on The Country Note Today! 

Iconic country/rock band, Sister Hazel, announces the release of their new album, Before The Amplifiers 2, with an exclusive premiere of single, “Your Winter” on The Country Note TODAY! The album is a 16-track collection of rare acoustic performances accompanied by a string quartet and recorded during an intimate live stream earlier this year. Included are new arrangements of Sister Hazel’s mega hits like “All For You,” ”Champagne High,” and “Your Winter,” as well as never before recorded deep cuts. Fans can preorder the album on CD and vinyl HERE.

“We always knew that we wanted to do another live acoustic record,” explained guitarist Ryan Newell.  “The last one was Unplugged from Daryl’s House Club.  That was a straight up Sister Hazel acoustic performance much like our previous acoustic record.  We always wanted to do an acoustic record with strings, dobro, mandolin classical guitar, all the stuff we don’t carry on the road.  The timing never seemed to work out until the COVID shut down.  We were streaming shows because we were not touring and we thought it was a great opportunity to put this show together and put it out as an album.”

About Sister Hazel:
Originating from Gainesville, FL, Sister Hazel is comprised of five gifted, seasoned musicians whose well-spring of natural talent has been called “one of the Top 100 Most Influential Independent Performers of the last 15 years” by Performing Songwriter Magazine. Song “All for You,” topped the adult alternative charts during the summer of 1997 and the success propelled their album to platinum status.  Since then, the band has become firmly established not only in rock and alternative music, but now in country with four back-to-back Billboard Top Country Albums Chart entries. They have most recently co-produced a cleverly themed EP compilation series entitled “Elements,” that includes a bonus seventh track that continued throughout the series. Living up to their fan-centered reputation, the band was a pioneer in the themed cruise industry by co-founding “The Rock Boat” and annually hosts events like the “Hazelnut Hang,” and “Camp Hazelnut” that focuses on creating unique experiences and interacting with the fans. Sister Hazel has been equally attentive to connecting with their audience through social media having amassed over a million social followers. In addition to the events and touring, the band also gives back with “Lyrics For Life.” Founded by singer Ken Block, the charity unites musicians and celebrities for concerts and auctions to benefit cancer research and patient-care charities.
