Pardon Me from Travers Chandler & Avery County

Mountain Fever Records Releases Pardon Me from
Travers Chandler & Avery County
June 5, 2012, (Willis, VA) —Mountain Fever Records is proud to announce the release Pardon Me, the latest project from Travers Chandler & Avery County.  The new CD has been shipped to radio programmers and retail outlets and is available worldwide today. 
Travers Chandler is surly a household name among residents of Galax,
Virginia where he has lived most of his life. But for those living
outside the borders of southwest Virginia, it’s possible that the first
you heard of him was du
ring the keynote address given by Infamous Stringdusters‘ Chris Pandolfi at the 2011 World of Bluegrass Conference held in Nashville, TN. Pandolfi
gave a very insightful and poignant speech about what the bluegrass
community now calls the “Big Tent” idea, and thoughtfully used Chandler
as an example of why traditional bluegrass music would never die. “There
are few young traditional bands out there,” stated Pandolfi,
“but they do exist and that is how traditional bluegrass will be
preserved. If you want to preserve traditional bluegrass, you need to
support a guy like Travers Chandler.” Whether you attended the
presentation in person or not, one thing was for sure, two names were
heard being uttered among the halls of the Nashville Convention Center
that week more than any other; Chris Pandolfi and Travers Chandler. 
Pardon Me is
an example of true, traditional bluegrass in every sense of the word.
Chandler took due diligence in song selection for this project, a task
he readily admits in his liner notes that he has never done before.
During the recording process from September 2011 through April 2012,
Chandler lived through possibly the most heartbreaking and difficult
time of his life, resulting in a song selection that conveys the emotion
he was feeling at the time. The result is tragic, dark and depressing
at times, presented by a self-proclaimed “mad man”. Travers Chandler
& Avery County perform some of the best classic bluegrass and honky-tonk style country music ever heard on
Pardon Me, supporting Chandler’s life-mission of keeping the legacies of his musical heroes alive. 
needs Travers Chandler,” states on-air personality Jim Beaver of WHUS
Radio. “As seemingly more of the music devolves into a formula, Travers
is the bitters in the beer, the rhubarb in the strawberry pie, the
element of counterpoint that draws forth the desperate emotion that begs
to be released from the form. He’s not the first — greats like Carter
Stanley, Charlie Moore, and Buzz Busby were there before him — but
Travers is for our time. Savor his music.”
Pardon Me has been shipped to retailers and radio worldwide and is also available to radio programmers via digital download through AirplayDirect. For more information on Travers Chandler & Avery County, visit or
