Hailing from La Crete, Alberta, country group High Valley consists of brothers Brad and Curtis Rempel. Today, the group has released their third album entitled County Line via Open Road Records. The record contains ten tracks including the singles “Rescue You” and “County Line.”
After hearing “County Line” on country radio, I was looking forward to seeing what the remainder of the album was like. Upon listening to the album, the build-up with the popularity of the single was not a letdown. Overall, I enjoyed listening to the album. The vocals and instrumentals tied in very nicely together. However, I think the thing that stands out is the actual writing. I thought it was especially cool that the track “Come on Down” was written about their hometown, La Crete.
My favourite songs off of the album are currently “Make You Mine” featuring Ricky Skaggs, “Farm Girl,” and “County Line.”
If you enjoy country music, definitely check out High Valley’s release of “County Line.” If you are already a fan, you will not be disappointed. Additionally, it provides a solid introduction to the artist and an album you can have on repeat.

Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
