SIDELINE And “Thunder Dan” Take Charts By Storm

Nashville, TN (April 4, 2018) – SIDELINE is taking the charts by storm with their latest single release, “Thunder Dan.”  The track has proven enormously popular with radio and listeners alike, debuting this week at #1 on the Bluegrass Today Monthly Chart, sitting at #4 on the Bluegrass Today Weekly Chart, and holding the #5 spot on the HotDisc International Chart.  The song is also one of Sirius XM’s Bluegrass Junction Most-Played Tracks, and a companion video is currently airing on The Country Network.  The tune’s mid-tempo groove and compelling lyric conjure up dark thoughts and a dim future for a backwoods loner but prove irresistible for Bluegrass lovers.  “Thunder Dan” is the first release from SIDELINE’s April 27 album, FRONT AND CENTER (Mountain Home Music), which is available for pre-order now.


“We are thrilled with how folks have responded to this record,” admits Steve Dilling, banjo player for SIDELINE.  “At its heart are all the hallmarks of a classic Bluegrass song and we just love it; we’re happy other folks feel the same.”


SIDELINE will be working hard to keep folks happy this spring, as they bring old favorites – and new music from FRONT AND CENTER – to a mix of venues that includes an album release celebration hosted by Mountain Home Music:
