WILLIS, Va. (Feb. 3, 2015) – Mountain Fever Records announces the release of “Backside of Losing,” the first single from the highly anticipated album from duo, Adkins & Loudermilk.
started out as two impressive solo careers has morphed into what is
already being described as a powerhouse team of vocals and songwriting. Dave Adkins has already had a successful career fronting his former band, Republik Steel, and Edgar Loudermilk
has been known as one of the most solid bass-playing vocalists in
bluegrass, having toured extensively with the likes of Rhonda Vincent,
Marty Raybon and IIIrd Tyme Out. But when Adkins & Loudermilk met a
couple years ago and began melding their talents of singing and
songwriting together, it became clear to them that forming a new duo was
much more musically exciting for them than going it alone. So in 2013,
the two officially launched their band and set out touring while still
promoting successful solo projects on Mountain Fever Records. Adkins’ Nothing To Lose
album included numerous singles that dominated the bluegrass radio
charts in 2014 including reaching the #1 spot on Sirius XM Bluegrass
Junction’s Most Played Tracks, several #1s on Bluegrass Today’s Top 20
and the Roots Music Report Top 50 Bluegrass Albums charts. The album
also appeared on the Roots Music Report’s Top 100 Bluegrass Albums of
2014. Meanwhile, Loudermilk had written all 15 songs on his October 2013
Mountain Fever Records release, My Big Chance Tomorrow,
an album that appeared on numerous radio charts and also hit the Roots
Music Report’s Top 100 Bluegrass Albums of 2014 chart. Of the decision
to join forces, Adkins states, “We just started writing together and
while it wasn’t something that was premeditated, it just unfolded due to
the chemistry we had. It all just happened kind of organically and on
its own from getting together.”

the band’s formal beginning in 2013, the duo has been delighting
audiences across the country and drew the attention of the Raleigh News
& Observer who stated, “The powerful, George Jones-style vocals of
Dave Adkins curled across City Plaza just about sundown as he and
partner Edgar Loudermilk entertained a capacity crowd on Fayetteville
Street… the relatively new act capably combined bluegrass and hard
