Love the new single Truck Drivin’ by Mike Bentley & Cumberland Gap Connection. It’s been fun watching this band grow over the years, and I think the new project will take them to the top of all the bluegrass charts. Good job guys – Big D Dwayne Amburgey, bigdradio.net
The guys in Mike Bentley & Cumberland Gap Connection just keep rolling. Truck Drivin’ tells the driver’s tale with Mike Bentley’s outstanding lead vocals, some hard-driving banjo, and solid harmony vocals. This one’s GOOD! Now I can’t wait to hear the rest of the project! – Tim “Doc” Carter , The Saturday Morning Bluegrass.
Fast, hard-driving bluegrass. That’s what you want in a bluegrass song and this one has it. The latest single Truck Drivin’ from Mike Bentley & Cumberland Gap Connection is one to get you up and moving. Many will relate to the story this one has to tell – Annette Grady, The Bluegrass Jamboree.
The band is in the studio this month finishing up their album, but will hit the road again in June performing multiple days at the Kluane Mountain Bluegrass Festival in Haines Junction, Yukon, Canada and the Music in the Mountains Bluegrass Festival in Summersville, West Virginia.
