Sonlite Records and Down East Boys Together Again

After 20 years of separation, Sonlite Records and Down East Boys have reunited to put together a new recording due out in October. The Down East Boys began traveling in the mid-1980s and have had numerous Top 40 songs including their hit song Beautiful Valley which was released in 1989 on the Sonlite label. It is really good to see them back on one of the leading labels, as this will hopefully give them the attention they deserve. I wish Ricky Carden, Jason Runnels, Stuart Cary, and Daryl Paschal the best and I can’t wait to hear their new recording.
