New Album!

Mitchell Davis Stepping Down
Nothin’ Fancy reluctantly announces the departure of Mitchell Davis from the band. Mitchell has personally made the decision to step down. When asked why, he replies, “The time is right.”

Mitchell Davis, a founding member of Nothin’ Fancy, has shown a track record of responsibility, punctuality and is a true entertainer, but most of all, a tremendous banjo player.

Mitchell will always be a member of our Nothin’ Fancy family and will be missed. We ask our friends, families and fans to honor Mitchell’s decision and join us in wishing him well with each new day he faces.

Mountain Fever Records Releases New Album From Nothin' Fancy

WILLIS, VA (October 12, 2018) -
[Mountain Fever Records is pleased to release a new project from one of Bluegrass music's most beloved bands, Nothin' Fancy.]

Based out of southern Virginia, Nothin' Fancy has been entertaining audiences for over two decades. With their bright music and flair for comedy, the band is always a crowd pleaser at venues around the world. Nothin' Fancy shares lightheartedness and sincerity with their audiences which is always warmly received.

Time Changes Everything is the band's 15th album and will delight listeners just as much as Nothin' Fancy's past hit albums have. The project features two songs written by band frontman, Mike Andes and two songs from guitarist Caleb Cox. It also includes music from Carter Stanley, Glen Campbell, Bob Dylan, and Allen Mills. With this arsenal of songwriters, the lead vocals of Mike Andes and Caleb Cox, and the band's superb musicianship, this project will please any bluegrass fan's musical appetite.
