National Media Services in Front Royal, Virginia invited Trinity River Band to record On A Morning Like This as the company’s annual Christmas album. “The new album certainly highlights National Media Services’ ability to put forth outstanding projects from start to finish, all in house. We were delighted to be a part of this project and humbled that they chose us for this venture,” said Sarah. “A special thank you to Will Shenk for his incredible patience while working so hard on this album, and making it sound so wonderful!”

The album was launched during the recent International Bluegrass Music Association’s (IBMA) annual World of Bluegrass event in Raleigh, North Carolina. During the week, Sarah Harris was honored with her second consecutive nomination for an IBMA Momentum Award in the Vocalist category.

On A Morning Like This is now available for digital purchase at iTunes, Rhapsody, AmazonMP3 and more outlets. Physical albums can be purchased at the band’s website at TrinityRiverBand.com.
