 Taste of Country Premieres Track “Champagne High” 

From New Album Before The Amplifiers 2
Out December 10

Iconic country/rock band, Sister Hazel, releases a rare acoustic version of song, “Champagne High,” accompanied by a string quartet, on Taste of Country TODAY. Hitting the Billboard Adult Top 40 chart in 2000, “Champagne High” is one of 16-tracks to be featured on their highly-anticipated new album, Before The Amplifiers 2, to be released on December 10, 2021. Fans can pre-order the album on CD and vinyl or digitally pre-save HERE.
“The newness of what they were doing — the fact that it was an unusual experience both for Sister Hazel and for the string players — lent an electricity and excitement to their performance,” lead singer Ken Block tells Taste of Country. “We don’t do that every day. They don’t do what we were doing every day. So to find that symmetry and interplay between us was really fun. They really brought excitement and enthusiasm…it just feels different when you’re sonically sounding different and you have different human energy up there.”

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.
