Album Notes
Appalachian Trail "Time for Movin"
(Mountain Music Machine - 042)

Comments from Joe Ross review;
"We know the Appalachian Trail generally runs in a north/south direction, however I expect this CD will bring many invitations to perform in the direction of all points on the compass as they continue to build a legion of fans."

Comments from Dave Higgs WPLN-FM, Nashville, TN;
"Appalachian Trail has put together another winning combination-covering some powerful tunes along with some killer Tommy Austin songs. I am so glad the band is re-formed and is obviously alive and well. I was especially enamored with Long Way to Virginia, Pale Rider, A Christmas Tear (destined to become a Christmas classic) Driving Blind and the a cappella stunner Delivered From the Hands of Pharoe." (Dave Higgs)

From the Liner Notes:

Appalachian Trail was formed around 1984. Original members Linda Lay and Carson Cooper were traveling to their first show and didn't have a name for the band when they saw a sign that read "Appalachian Trail" and decided on that until they thought of something better....20 years later, this band is still burning new trails in the bluegrass arena. This band helped cultivate the careers of the likes of Adam Steffey, John Bowman, Becky Buller and countless others.

It is a renewal time, for the band has two new members, a new CD and several original songs. Current members include Vickie Austin, Tommy Austin, Tim Laughlin, Glen Rose and Josh Goforth. This lineup has toured in several countries and all across the US. Appalachian Trail has won the highly acclaimed SPBGMA band championship, and several other awards.

Tommy has been with the group for seven years. Josh for two. Tim was a member in years past, and Glen and Vickie are the new kids on the block. Carson Cooper continues to be a strong mentor to the group. Linda left the band to form a new group named "Springfield Exit" and is recording music for the Cracker Barrel label. The numerous former and present members of Appalachian Trail continue to be close friends who are tied by a bond of their love for music. We hope you enjoy our latest CD.

Heee Haaa
Time for Movin is nothing but the best in a bluegrass band. Awsome job! WTG! Appalachian Trail!!!

R L Rouse

Bluegrass music from one of the genre's best groups!
Describing the sweet sounds of Appalachian Trail's unique vocal harmonies and rousing instrumentals is easy: smooth, polished, and professional. Listening to those sweet sounds is easier still.

Accomplished musicians, singers and performers, the members of Appalachian Trail put on a live performance that is not to be missed!

Jason Hooker

This CD covers the whole spectrum of bluegrass.
Man, would I like to see this group play in person! Words don’t do this CD justice. You have to hear it. From melody to musicianship, this group has got it all in place. The harmony capabilities are impeccable. The musical talent is just as strong. They also display their song writing abilities.


Time For Movin
I've been looking for this CD and thanks to CD Baby I can now enjoy it any time I want. I love this group and wish they would record more music.


Time for Movin
Love, love love this group and thanks to CD Baby I can listen to them any time I want too.
Thanks also for such great service, no complaints from me at all.

My wife and I were so excited that it came so quickly. We called the rest of our family and each marveled at the special packaging in which it came. Luckily, we had one special bottle of wine left over from our wedding 43 years ago that we intended to save for our 50th anniversary. We couldn't wait to open it and savor it as we listened to this CD. Thank you for making our anniversary celebration happen 7 years early.


New fan of Appy Trail
Just enjoyed the program on public tv. July 10, 2005. Never heard of you good folks but Wow!

Was hoping you had a website or contact. Just to say thanks for the great music.!

Spent the day caving in Bath County Virginia today. What a treat to come home, get cleaned up and sit down to your music! What a great day!

You have a new fan!

God bless and keep the music going!

Solid bluegrass that will build this band a legion of fans
Playing Time – 43:50 -- Appalachian Trail was originally formed in 1984 by Carson Cooper and Linda Barker, now Linda Lay. A decade later, the Bristol, Tn. group won SPBGMA’s Band Championship. Linda and Carson have since moved on to other endeavors, and the senior member is now mandolinist Tommy Austin with his seven years as a band member. The other musicians are Vickie Austin (upright bass), Tim Laughlin (fiddle, mandolin, guitar), Glen Rose (banjo), and Josh Goforth (guitar, fiddle, banjo). Tommy or Vickie provide the lead vocals. Guest Brown Burleson provides harmonica on “Tell Me Why.”

“Time For Movin’” was recorded over the course of one year at Hugh Sturgill’s ‘Hugh’s House Studio’ in Boone, North Carolina. Seven songs are original numbers written by Vickie, Tommy, or Josh. The album’s contemporary opener, “Pale Rider,” has a haunting feel as a man’s impending destiny awaits him. “Pocket Knives and Fiddle Tunes” is a nostalgic tale that incorporates snippets of some popular fiddle tunes in the arrangement. “Sunday Mornin’ Feeling” captures the sentiments on the day after love is lost. Josh Goforth sings his own composition, “Drivin’ Blind.” Tommy Austin’s “A Christmas Tear” was a third-place winner in the 2004 Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at Merlefest, and Vickie Austin’s “Can’t Hold Onto Much” made the top ten in IBMA’s Songwriter Showcase.

Songs covered on the album come from Joe Carter, Daryl Mosley, Dallas Frazier, Dan Seals, Hank Williams and O.A.Parris/Eugene Wright. The Austins do a fine job on “I’m Blue, I’m Lonesome Too,” and the closing Gospel track “Delivered from the Hands of Pharaoh” allows the band’s acapella quartet to shine.

Despite the broken down wagon on the backside of this CD, the kids pictured are still movin’ with their luggage in hand. While we know that the Appalachian Trail generally runs in a north/south direction, I expect that this CD will bring the band many invitations to perform in the direction of all points on the compass as they continue to build a legion of fans.
