You may have gathered by their name that National Park Radio loves the great outdoors. But it’s not just the experience of being in nature that they love; it’s what America’s outdoors represent: the pioneering spirit and timelessness. You’ll hear both of those qualities in the music of National Park Radio.
Today we’re excited to premiere “I Will Go On,” a fast-driving track from their debut album, The Great Divide.
Listeners have described the band’s sound as a cross between the Avett Brothers and Mumford & Sons — an apt comparison, especially for this track. The song blends train-speed bluegrass rhythms with pop-inspired melodies and lyrics.
Lead singer/songwriter Stefan Szabo says the song is all about enduring hard times and pressing forward. It has an anthemic quality and ends triumphantly. So if you’re having a bad day, crank this one up and carry on.
The Great Divide is now available on iTunes and wherever you buy digital music. You can view a list of National Park Radio’s current tour dates here.
