      One of country music’s most successful groups, HIGHWAY 101, will perform at the Countrygrass Music Festival in Jefferson, Maine on Saturday, August 19th.  The group signed with Warner Brothers Records-Nashville in 1987, and went on to record five of their thirteen albums for the label, including the debut project which went GOLD. The ACM (Academy of Country Music) & CMA (Country Music Association) awarded them twice as Vocal Group of the Year and twice won a Grammy for Best Country Vocal Performance.
     In total, they have scored ten hit singles in a row on the Billboard Hot Country Charts, including four #1's in the United States and five #1's in Canada which included, “Somewhere Tonight”, “Whiskey If You Were A Woman”, “Cry, Cry, Cry”, and "Who’s Lonely Now”.  Highway 101 has had fifteen Top 30 hit singles and five albums that have reached the Top 20 charts.
      When founding lead singer, Paulette Carlson, left the band in 1991 she was replaced by the current lead singer, Nikki Nelson, and Highway 101 continued grinding out the hits. The first of which was “Bing Bang Boom”, and they continue recording. In 2010, they performed at The Grand Ole Opry to celebrate their critically acclaimed DVD project, "Christmas on Highway 101". The Countrygrass Music Festival, being held in a beautiful family setting, is sponsored by the Maine Academy of Country Music and is a three day event, from Friday August 18th till August 20th at Broken Acres Family Retreat, 40 Retreat Road, Jefferson, Maine.
