Sister Hazel Announces New Album “Before The Amplifiers 2”

Iconic country/rock band, Sister Hazel, announces the release of their new album, Before The Amplifiers 2.

The album is a 16-track collection of rare acoustic performances accompanied by a string quartet and recorded during an intimate live stream earlier this year. Included are new arrangements of Sister Hazel’s mega-hits like “All For You,” ”Champagne High,” and “Your Winter,” as well as never before recorded deep cuts. Fans can preorder the album on CD and vinyl HERE.

We always knew that we wanted to do another live acoustic record,” explained guitarist Ryan Newell.  “The last one was Unplugged from Daryl’s House Club.  That was a straight-up Sister Hazel acoustic performance much like our previous acoustic record.  We always wanted to do an acoustic record with strings, dobro, mandolin classical guitar, all the stuff we don’t carry on the road.  The timing never seemed to work out until the COVID shut down.  We were streaming shows because we were not touring and we thought it was a great opportunity to put this show together and put it out as an album.
