2017 brought the follow up to the band’s 2013 album, Family. Country Home is an all-original 13-track release, which finds Old Shoe in search of their ‘Country Home’. Written over the course of the last couple years with a good portion of the tunes being written in Oneida County, Wisconsin at a country home. Recorded at the same studio as Family, I.V. Labs Studio in Chicago. Engineered, mixed and co-produced by Chris Harden.
In the last couple years, Old Shoe has continued to round the Midwest festival circuit at high-profile events like Summer Camp and Wakarusa, opened for Grammy-award winning Bruce Hornsby, Greenksy Bluegrass, Leftover Salmon, and Keller Williams and even produced 7 consecutive installments of their own festival, Shoe Fest.
