Nicholas Jamerson has confirmed the release of his 6th studio album, Peace Mountain, arriving May 19, 2023. Today, the Kentucky-based troubadour is proud to share the title track, “Peace Mountain,” written with fellow Kentuckian Don Rogers and performed with West Virginian stalwart Charles Wesley Godwin. Whiskey Riff premiered the single yesterday, stating that “the best country music is coming from the heart of Appalachia right now.”

"Peace Mountain" comes in follow up to Jamerson's recently-released single, "Lexington," which debuted last month to widespread applause. Featuring the haunting vocal stylings of Charles Wesley Godwin, "Peace Mountain" is a poignant ballad inspired by the unique challenges of life in Appalachia.

“I wrote the chorus and melody after a trip to Davis, WV where I passed a road named Peace Mountain,” Jamerson shares.

The song was quickly brought to life when Jamerson brought the concept to Don Rogers — the pair’s respective experiences breathing an air of authenticity into the verses.

Jamerson continues, “[it’s] a song about a family’s immigration to the Appalachian mountains looking for a new way of life that includes hard work, virtue and the occasional nip of communal white lightning.”

“Peace Mountain” is an emblem of the complicated relationship many locals have with the land. Written and performed in collaboration with two of Appalachia’s most zealous songwriters, the track embodies the hardships of family obligations and making the most of few resources. Beyond its disparaging subject matter, the lyrics are quick to point out the hard-won rewards of working off the land. The chorus “Peace Mountain / in the land of Canaan / on Peace Mountain / where I go when the work is done” symbolizes a well-deserved respite from adversity and strife.

Echoing these themes, the album, Peace Mountain, set for release in the spring of 2023, picks up where Jamerson’s last record, The Wild Frontier left off. “The Wild Frontier was about finding faith; whereas Peace Mountain is about practicing faith and making peace with life, trusting that the work has been done, and enjoying the process,” he adds.

Rich with passionate verse and deeply personal storytelling, both the album and its title track crystallize Jamerson as one of the most prolific songwriters of his generation. The single “Peace Mountain” is out today on all digital streaming platforms. To listen and share, visit To learn more about Nicholas Jamerson, visit
