1 More Road is made up of a mother, father, and five
children.  Steve & Cathy Young are mom and dad. Clint, Haley,
Amanda, Faith, and Nathan are the children.  They were known in the
past as the ‘Young Family Band’ but now they are ‘1 More Road,’ and that
is very indicative of where they are headed with their music. 
Traveling from Oklahoma (where a tragic tornado recently struck), this
family goes wherever their 1 more road takes them.  Gospel oriented,
they blend the musical sounds of bluegrass and traditional country to
produce a most pleasant listening experience.  The entire family has a
passion for playing good old-time American style Gospel music, utilizing
acoustic instruments undoubtedly interchanged among the players,.  The
line-up is impressive.  Dad Steve plays bass; mom Cathy plays guitar and
banjo; daughter Amanda plays Dobro and hammered dulcimer; son Clint
plays guitar and emcees the shows; daughter Haley plays fiddle; daughter
Faith plays mandolin and twin fiddle; and son Nathan plays banjo, bass,
and guitar. All of this family sings, and I can just hear them
practicing  a new song as they roll down the road in their bus.  Why? 
Because their harmony is so perfect.  That’s what makes ‘family’ bands
so unique, so creative, so dynamic, and 1 More Road is one of those
families.  “Feelin’ Fine” is a perfect example of this kind of perfect
family harmony singing.  This entire family sings, but not always
together on the same song. This CD project, recorded at the Covenant
Studios in Amarillo, Texas, is dedicated to grandparents Nana Jo and
Papa Lyle, making this fine gospel group, ‘1 More Road’ a truly ‘family’
experience.  It’s pretty easy to see why the Rural Roots Music
Commission picked this CD for their ‘Traditional Gospel CD of the Year’
for the honors.  We have our hopes up that they can be in LeMars to make
the connection and accept.  It’ll just be another stop on one more road
this fine group travel,s in the pursuit of sharing the teachings of
Christ and the everlasting hope that all of us Christians have in
meeting Him someday, to sing with Him, to share with Him, to become one
with Him.
