High Valley were on “CBS This Morning” to talk about their music and upbringing.

The brothers,
Brad and Curtis Rempel, grew up in a remote part of Alberta, Canada, so far out that TV and radio weren’t an option.

“We were allowed to listen to the radio but when you turned it on there was nothing on it,” Brad remembers.

As a result, their family made their own music, inspired greatly by their Ricky Skaggs records. While their parents had grown up in traditional Mennonite homes — without electricity — the Rempels did have the modern conveniences that were available to them.
