Ask Sarah Davison what her favorite Bible verse is, and she’ll immediately quote Proverbs 3:5-6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.” It’s a scripture that has accompanied the acclaimed singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist through life’s highs and lows, and one she hand-copied—in a flowery cursive script—from her grandmother’s Bible. “That verse has been with me from my hometown of 150 people to Nashville, going after what I feel called to do, trusting that He’s leading me down the right road,” she reflects.
It’s not only a scripture that beautifully encapsulates Sarah’s own journey, but the ordained path of her two time Grammy nominated band, HighRoad, as well. Since the group’s genesis, Sarah and bandmates have already garnered a 2021 Grammy Nomination and a 2019 Grammy Nomination for their part in the album, “Gonna Sing, Gonna Shout”, the Singing News New Artist of the Year, the Diamond Award for Country Gospel Song of the Year, 2017 AGM Country Song of the Year, and the AGM Female Group of the Year award in 2016. They regularly perform at leading Gospel music events including the Gatlinburg Gathering, Singing In The Sun, Unspeakable Joy Women’s Events, and The National Quartet Convention.
In 2018, they played on the Grand Ole Opry stage in Nashville, and had their first two number 1 singles on Southern Gospel Radio. In 2019, they signed with Daywind Records and joined their artist roster, completing their newest self titled, album, High Road.
With a fanbase easily canvassing an array of genres—from country, to bluegrass, to Gospel, to contemporary Christian—the ladies of HighRoad present an evening of grassy instrumentation, lush harmonies, original songs, and gentle nostalgia-laden melodies harkening back to their roots. They hope listeners walk away and say, “I feel like I know these girls, and I can relate to these songs”.
