The Coast To Coast Closeup is presented by The Eagle River Casino and Travel Plaza in Whitecourt .

Mixing the cadence and rhythms of 60’s soul and 70’s rock with modern country, The Prairie States was born out of a desire to put a fresh touch on a classic design. As recipients of the 2018 ACMA awards for Rising Star and Fan’s Choice, 2019 ACMA winners of Group/Duo and Video of the Year, as well as 1st place in the Project Wild Artist Development Program, it’s proof that this Edmonton based band is moving in the right direction.

Mat Cardinal, Jeff Dick, Mike Nash, Doc deGroot, and Jay Der formed The Prairie States in 2017 and immediately started writing songs for their full length album, Lost In The Right Direction. Independently released in June 2018, it was nominated for the ACMA Album Of The Year and included three radio singles, which all broke the top 100 Mediabase Canadian Country Chart.

Their current single, Low Life, is about the happiness and contentment that can only be found in the simple things. The track, which was produced by CCMA and Juno award winner Bart McKay, is the perfect summer singalong song about how the high life is no life for The Prairie States.
