Recently topping the ReverbNation Americana charts for Asheville, Americana/country-blues collective The Freeway Revival writes songs about the Appalachian mountains but spends a lot of time touring outside Western North Carolina. Upcoming dates take the group to the Carolina coast, upstate New York and into the Midwest; last spring the band traveled to L.A. to record Over the Mountain. The nine-track album “features Jorgen Carlsson of Government Mule on bass and Fernando Sanchez on drums,” according to the band’s bio. The songs balance organic, rootsy melodies with a vintage, well-traveled rock feel. The Freeway Revival kicks off its Over the Mountain tour at The Mothlight on Saturday, Jan. 3, at 9 p.m. The Dirty Soul Revival also performs. $5. themothlight.com. Photo courtesy of the band
