Willis, Va. (August 16, 2022) – Mountain Fever Records proudly announces today’s new single, “Losing My Religion,” by Volume Five.

This new track includes the award-winning talents of Glen Harrell on lead vocals and fiddle, Jacob Burleson on guitar, Patton Wages on banjo, Aaron Ramsey on mandolin, and Jeff Partin on bass and resophonic guitar, and Josh Shilling on tenor harmony vocals.
Band leader, fiddler, and lead vocalist, Glen Harrell, said, “I was so fortunate to have this song dropped in my lap. Josh Miller is one of my favorite writers and musicians.

This is a great song to remind people once again that it rains on the just and the unjust.”
