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.
