MOUNT HOPE, W. Va. (July 17th, 2013) – After performing
alongside fellow artists Jason Michael Carroll and Steve Holy at the
Eastern Ohio Hunting and Fishing Expo in Sherrodsville, Ohio on
Saturday, Little General Records trio Taylor Made was back in their home
state of West Virginia – this time with the honor of headlining the
opening ceremonies for the first ever Boy Scout Jamboree on Tuesday,
July 16th at The Summit – a 10,600-acre spread in West Virginia’s New
River Gorge region that was recently named the official home of future

The event ushered in 40,000 boy scouts from all over the United States, as well as thousands of  volunteers.
The opening ceremonies included Taylor Made’s rendition of the Star
Spangled Banner, a speech made by West Virginia governor Earl Ray
Tomblin, and a mini-concert of Taylor Made originals, including previous
single Good Love.

“The energy at The Summit was incredible,” said Brian Duckworth of
Taylor Made. “Performing originals for a new crowd is always exciting,
but to perform our National Anthem for 40,000 Boy Scouts saluting the
flag – it was an experience we’ll never forget.”

The event also held significant meaning for member Greg Duckworth who,
as a West Virginia state trooper, had to wear more than just his artist
hat at the event.

“As a member of the state police, I spent a lot of time working with
fellow troopers and coordinating agencies to ensure event safety. It was
quite the undertaking, but such an honor to be a part of. To see it all
come together like it has… It’s been incredible.”

Made has been performing together since childhood. With a background in
church and back porch singing, the trio reformed as I-79 for the Colgate
Country Showdown. It was only a matter of time before their sibling
harmonies caught the attention of Little General Stores owner Greg
Darby, who signed them to his West Virginia-based Little General Records
under the new name Taylor Made (after their Taylor County upbringing).
In 2011, they released single Good Love off of their EP of the same
title, which topped off at #42 on the Billboard Indicator chart and #28
on the MusicRow chart. Their next single, Things You Don’t Grow Out Of,
took them into the top 40 on Billboard Indicator (#37) and the top 20 on
Music Row (#19). For more information on Taylor Made, visit www.taylormadecountry.com.
