Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, and musician Molly Tuttle and her band, Golden Highway, have released their latest album, City of Gold, available now via Nonesuch Records. Along with the LP release, Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway have shared a lyric video for album track “Yosemite”, which features Dave Matthews.

The album marks Tuttle’s first release since her acclaimed 2022 record, Crooked Tree, which won Best Bluegrass Album at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards and earned her a Best New Artist nomination. In addition to Tuttle (vocals, acoustic guitar), the band features Bronwyn Keith-Hynes (fiddle, harmony vocals), Dominick Leslie (mandolin), Shelby Means (bass, harmony vocals), and Kyle Tuttle (banjo, harmony vocals).

Produced by Tuttle and Jerry Douglas and recorded at Nashville’s Sound Emporium StudiosCity of Gold features 13 tracks written mostly by Tuttle and Ketch Secor of Old Crow Medicine Show. The album reflects her life on the road with Golden Highway and the growth they’ve experienced together over the past few years of touring, during which time she won Album of the Year at the 2023 International Folk Music Awards, Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2022 International Bluegrass Music Awards, Instrumentalist of the Year at the 2018 Americana Music Awards, and Guitar Player of the Year at the IBMAs in both 2017 and 2018, making her the first woman to receive the honor.

Reflecting on the project, Tuttle shared, “When I was a kid, we took a field trip to Coloma, CA to learn about the gold rush. I’ll never forget the dusty hills and the grizzled old miner who showed us the nugget around his neck. Just like gold fever, music has always captivated me, captured my heart, and driven me to great lengths to explore its depths. On my new album I dug deep as a songwriter (with Ketch Secor) and co-producer (with Jerry Douglas) and surfaced with a record that celebrates the music of my heart, my life, the land where I grew up, and the stories I heard along the way.”

“I made this record with my band Golden Highway after playing over 100 shows across the country last year,” she continued. “On the road and in the studio, we are inspired by artists such as John Hartford, Gillian Welch and Peter Rowan to name a few, whose records are like family albums to us. Just like them, on this album we chart some new territory along some old familiar ground. The songs span from breakdowns to ballads, fairytales and fiddle tunes, from Yosemite up to the Gold Country and out beyond the mountains. That visit to Coloma, site of California’s first gold strike is where I first heard about El Dorado, the city of gold. Playing music can take you to a place that is just as precious.”
