"High Valley" Canadian pop country duo High Valley is made up of brothers Brad and Curtis Rempel. The brothers grew up on a farm in the remote rural community of La Crete, Alberta, where it seemed there was always a lot of country music being played, and the brothers quickly absorbed it, forming High Valley before they were even teenagers. The young band, originally a trio with brother Bryan, played wherever they could, often at church camps, and eventually worked their way up to open for country stars who toured through, all while still attending school and holding down part-time jobs. They recorded for the first time in Nashville in 2001 and released a debut album, Broken Borders, in 2007. In 2011, the band won five GMA Canada Covenant Awards, including Artist of the Year and Group of the Year.
