Cumberland River is a national touring band based in Harlan, Kentucky. They have been gaining attention from their recent live performances and sold out shows impressing audiences with their three strong lead vocalists and tight instrumental talents.

In 2013, the album JUSTIFIED: Music From the Original Television Series was released on Madison Gate Records that includes Cumberland River’s original song, “Justified.”
