Emmy Winner and Five Time GRAMMY Nominee
Continues Creative Journey with Collection of Story Songs

(Nashville, Tenn.) Sept. 11, 2012 ñ Brandon Heath returns to his roots, while creating new ones, with his fourth full-length album Blue Mountain releasing October 9. The first single ìJesus In Disguiseî is climbing radio charts and its music video premiered on VEVO this week.

Heath, a Nashville native, merges ancient tones and modern music-making on Blue Mountain, a 12-track journey full of heart and back-porch ease. He fleshes out characters created for, and residing in, the fictional Appalachian setting called ëBlue Mountain,í which, as is frequently the case with great art, are slices of the storyteller himself. ìThrough the characters on ëBlue Mountain,í Iím more outside of myself, but maybe more true to myself than Iíve ever been. Funny enough, by the time I had finished this record, I realized that ëBlue Mountainí is me.î

Jono Davies of louderthanthemusic.com, notes, ìSometimes being creative can mean being unusual, but not with Brandon, he basically lets his songs grow into interesting pieces of musical art.î ìThese aren't just good songs, they are also great stories about how Brandon feels about life, love, God, hurt and everything else in-between.î Read the entire review here: http://bit.ly/OlEPWp.

Teaming again with producer Dan Muckala, Heath aims for a rootsier musical space with Blue Mountain, crafting tracks that are a hybrid of the driving acoustic music of both his youth and this projectís imagined locale, together with the loops and beats that have become part of Heathís signature sound.

Heath will celebrate Blue Mountain's street day by taking center stage for his debut performance on the Grand Ole Opry -- a childhood dream. ìFor as long as I can remember, I have wanted to perform on the Opry. The fact that it's on my album's release day is even bigger! For a kid from Nashville, itís a dream come true.î

Later that week, Heath will team with label-mate Matt Maher for the 24-city ìBlue Mountain Tourî which kicks off on October 11 in Milwaukee, Wis. For tour information, please visit www.brandonheath.net.
