Their songs have graced Bluegrass Unlimited's Top Thirty Singles Chart for a combined total of 32 months, receiving heavy national airplay. Southern Rail’s reputation for strong original material, heart-stopping harmonies, and infectious good humor has spread to both coasts, spurred on by a heavy touring schedule and 8 successful recordings.

The CD has been getting rave reviews across the country. Southern Rail's recordings have all received outstanding reviews and heavy airplay, climbing to #11 on Bluegrass Unlimited’s Top Thirty Single’s Chart, and hitting #1 on radio stations across the nation.
