Mountain Fever Records has announced the Spinney Brothers' latest album, No Borders, is the Number 1 Bluegrass CD, according to Bluegrass Unlimited’s national bluegrass survey for December. 

Allan and Rick Spinney’s debut CD on Mountain Fever Records, Memories, was also well received and reached the number three spot on the National Bluegrass Music Survey last February. The title track reached number one that same month on the Top 30 Songs chart. 

Released back in May, No Borders includes recognizable hits for the band including the first single, Grandpa's Way Of Life -  which is currently number two on the Top 30 Songs chart - and fan favorite, I Want My Dog Back.

"We are just thrilled with the success of The Spinney Brothers," said Mountain Fever Records executive Mark Hodges. "Allan and Rick are some of the most wonderful people I know and it's been a pure joy to work with them over the years. Their dedication to their music and to the business is refreshing and I can't think of a more deserving group of people. It's a great way to kick off a new year."

The Wolfville natives debuted their band in 1992 and tour extensively. They showcase a tight duet vocal style with an energetic and distinctive sound.

The cornerstone of their musical identity is their thorough understanding of traditional, southern-flavored bluegrass music. The first generation bluegrass legends have been an important musical influence, yet the brother’s music is equally shaped by their personal lives and rural heritage. By incorporating original material, which draws from various sources, the Spinney Brothers effortlessly intertwine the past with the present.

The four-man Spinney band is beginning 2014 in the U.S. with shows at various venues in Georgia and Florida through Jan. 18.
