Steep Canyon Rangers shared a new single, “Sweet Spot.” The Asheville, North Carolina-based bluegrass outfit also mapped out Summer and Fall 2022 tour dates.

Steep Canyon Rangers captured “Sweet Spot” at Asheville’s Echo Mountain Recording. Co-written by the entire band and featuring each member — Woody Platt, Graham Sharp, Mike Guggino, Nicky Sanders, Mike Ashworth and Barrett Smith — on lead vocals for the verse they wrote.

“Everybody’s got that place or state of mind that is the sweet spot; it’s not always easy to get there but when it’s just right, you know it,” Sharp said of the new single. “This song seemed like the perfect chance to let a bunch of voices sing about that sweet spot, wherever you can find it.”

“Sweet Spot” is also the last recording to feature Woody Platt. SCR announced Platt’s departure in April and Woody will play his final shows with the band in the coming months. Listen to “Sweet Spot” below:
