One of the things I get excited about doing this podcast is hearing all of the different styles of music out there. And I enjoy talking to people who use these different styles to further the Kingdom of God. So today, I'm exploring a music style that I don't talk about much but enjoy. Usually, I'd say we are headed to the Appalachian mountains of West Virginia. But my guest is on tour, so we've headed to Arkansas. Today I'm chatting with Jonathan Buckner of the band Chosen Road, and we're going to discuss their latest album called Appalachian Hymns.

Chosen Road has carved a singular niche in the musical landscape with world-class Appalachian instrumentation combined with a passion for sharing and living the Gospel. Comprised of founding member Jonathan Buckner, Zachary Alvis, Tyler Robertson, and Josh Hicks, the group has been carefully honing its craft since 2009, releasing six albums and performing at festivals, fairs, churches, and theatres across the United States as well as overseas. Their 2020 recording, Appalachian Worship, reached #4 on Billboard’s Top Bluegrass Albums chart and remained a fixture there for a notable 30 weeks. The ensemble has garnered six Top 10 Bluegrass radio singles throughout their career, including the #1 “When I Get Home,” and performed on stages alongside such greats as Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Dailey & Vincent, and The Isaacs. With deep roots in the Baptist tradition, the band has an ongoing partnership with the North American Mission Board’s (NAMB) Church Replant and Revitalization Team, where they help increase awareness about the number of churches closing their doors each year.
