Calamity Jane - The Mountain
Nashville based duo Calamity Jane is back with a new release The Mountain.
The new track follows the amazing success of their previous singles, their reimagined version of the classic Charlie Daniels Band track, Devil Went Down To Georgia (and yes, their version has received a ‘thumbs up’ from Charlie Daniels himself!) which was a massive radio hit, receiving support from the KIX and CMC national radio networks.
Their follow-up track The Chase, did equally well, featuring on the renowned Spotify editorial playlist, New Music Nashville. The Mountain sees the band broadening their sound but staying true to their brand of country, folk and pop.
The song is a melodically powerful declaration of self-belief and self-will with a lyric that’s as uplifting as it is inspirational. Lucy and Camille excel on this new track, with their trademark interplay of violin and voice working beautifully, utilising a rousing tune that will no doubt get a lot of attention at radio and on all streaming platforms. The production is typically full and polished, and features the band in fine form, with the introductory violin parts organically blending in with the vocal sections.

There are hooks all along the way here, from the verse to the pre-chorus to the chorus. The lyric features the same panoramic imagery Calamity Jane is becoming known for but it’s in the chorus where the strength of the lyric lies, with its mantra of determination and ambition.
Calamity Jane’s version of Devil Went Down To Georgia went on to have huge radio success getting support from major radio networks in Australia, including the KIX and CMC national radio networks, and in the US with CMT, The Country Network and The Heartland Network, some of the biggest country music broadcasters in the States.
No doubt The Mountain will get the same sort of attention for the band.
