The Ozark Mountain Daredevils continue their yearlong 50th anniversary celebration with a new partnership with Time Life. The new deal kicked off Sept. 2 with the digital reissue of two albums, “Off the Beaten Path” and “Heaven 20/20,” which includes an updated version of their signature song, “If You Wanna Get to Heaven.”
Fans can now listen to both albums on all major streaming services such as Apple Music, Spotify and Amazon Music. The band will reissue additional albums via Time Life over the next few months.
“It’s been a really incredible 50th anniversary year and we could not be more excited to add to the celebration than by partnering up with Time Life,” says original founding member John Dillon. “These two albums represent our independence as artists,” adds fellow founding member Michael Supe Granda. “They mean so much to us since we originally released them on our own and now we’ve set it up to make sure they get directly to our fans with the help of Time Life. And we’ve got more coming!”
The Ozark Mountain Daredevils have marked their 50th anniversary with a yearlong tour, a documentary for Ozarks Public Television, their Grand Ole Opry debut and an upcoming set of performances with the 50-piece Springfield Symphony Orchestra later this month.
The Ozark Mountain Daredevils formed in Springfield, MO in 1971 and have delivered genre-defying music to fans around the world ever since.
A wholly original mix of country-rock and electric bluegrass, the band is also known for their poetic and whimsical lyrics and show-stopping harmonies.
