“I can’t say enough good things about the new project from Cumberland Gap Connection. Armed with great players, singers and writers, this band is definitely one to watch. They have all the ingredients necessary to be a great band for years to come. Lead vocalist Mike Bentley is an unbelievably talented singer and songwriter who deserves so much to be heard. All the guys are gifted on their individual instruments, but the thing that makes this band click is the unity and band chemistry you feel when they perform together. I’m proud to have helped in the making of this project. These guys are my friends but even if they weren’t I’d still recommend this music to anyone. It’s too good to pass up. Congratulations on a fine piece of work boys!” - Steve Gulley, Grasstowne
“Cumberland Gap Connection is a fairly new band to the scene, but these guys bring it from the heart. They have all the elements that it takes for a great band! Awesome vocals and playing, but probably most importantly, really good songwriting. I''m talking about songs that sound like they were written fifty years ago, but are brand new. These guys were born and bred into bluegrass and it''s easy to tell. Whether it''s contemporary bluegrass or straight ahead pile driving grass these guys can flat do it. I hope you enjoy hearing them as much as I do!” - Alan Bibey, 2007, 2009 & 2010 SPBGMA "Mandolin Player Of The Year", Grasstowne
