The Latest Release: Live At Liberty!

Gigs and Recording 

As time passes, we are getting more gigs and hope to see you there.

One of the most recent is being booked at the Labor day Armuchee BG festival. It's like going back home, as we performance Friday & Saturday. (Show Times TBD)

I am hoping to have the recording done by then, and we will be able to set up a merch table to buy all your CT&TR wares. The recording is almost complete, and the single, I'm Home" will be released hopefully within a the month of July. Pray for us as we continue in the Lord's service and know that all in His time. 
Thank you all so much for your continued support and God bless! - Carl T.

Recording Delayed! 

:( I am sad. Today was supposed to be the day for release of “I'm Home”.
Unfortunately, scheduling has gotten us behind and it may be end of summer before it is available. 
i am so sorry for this. I am still excited about it getting out to you all, and it WILL happen but later than expected.
Please keep checking back, or join the mailing list, as I send out periodical news such as this to our subscribers!

God Bless!

Session Three coming up! 

Hello friends!
Thank you all so much for your support and for joining the mailing list. If you are not signed up for the mailing list, please do so. I will be offering exclusive deals to my mailing list subscribers for the upcoming release.

I was supposed to go back into the studio on March 27th and 28th for the 3rd Session. However, unforeseen circumstances caused us to have to reschedule to April 10th. I am excited to get back in and finish up this CD for you all! This third session will bring in Kenny and Amanda to do backup vocals for me, and I will do some mandolin work and a bit of vocal touch up. 

This would lead us to one more session to finish recording tracks, then the mix and master will come and the project will be ready for release! So with all that said, we are still on schedule for June 5th, 2023 release! It will be available on my website earlier if possible and to my subscribers even sooner.  
it's a very exciting time for Carl Towns & Upward Road.

Thanks again! God Bless!

Year's End 

It's been a hard year for a lot of people.

I've had so many musical set-backs that I can't count them. But I know the Lord is with me, and it will all work out.

As the new year closes, I am adamant to continue the positive Bluegrass mission. With that said, I will be making a change to the structure of Upward Road and will be looking for musicians and singers to join me on the road at various venues. If you are a musician and would like an opportunity to pick some fun music, let me know.

Meanwhile, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a wonderful year to come. God Bless!

Carl T.

Hey yall!

Hope all is well. We've made a couple of changes to our tour schedule for the remainder of the year and are getting more bookings for next year.

The Oct 22 events are cancelled, due to circumstances out of our control. We have added one to our schedule for next year. Look forward to going to the Mountain Opry on January 28th next year. Keep up to date! Bookmark the site and come back to keep up with what is happening.

Unconditional Reality

Carl is glad to announce that he will be recording a new full project starting this week. The project is "Unconditional Reality", which refers to the real relationship with Father God and His unconditional love for all! 
There will be songs about the Father, worship and living the Christian life.
Some great musicians are lined up and it will be quite a difference in style, as Carl moves into a more contemporary style with an acoustic Bluegrass flavor.
