Singer and musician Sage left a message on Facebook announcing their new release.
Each year I have the privilege to host Wyoming's Chugwater Chili Cook-off. Just a few years ago I introduced a trio of young ladies from Buffalo Wyoming who called themselves Prairie Wildfire.
They were just teenagers at the time. Young high school girls.
But wow, could they sing. Their charming stage presence brought loud applause and cheers from the audience and calls for more when they had finished their last song.
They were so good I bought their CD and they have been invited back to Chugwater every year since.
Two of the girls are now in college.
But they are still singing, and one of their first songs is climbing the charts.
Prairie Wildfire’s last single debuted at No. 12 and jumped to No. 8 on the internet radio station Bluegrass Jamboree — was written by a 12-year-old and a 14-year-old inside a basement blanket fort. (Buffalo Bulletin).
You can hear their song at the bottom of this story.
Their local paper in Buffalo, Wyoming, explains that Sage Palser and Tessa Taylor wrote “West Virginia Train” out of boredom.
They were just hanging out and decided to write a song.
“Sage looked at me and said, ‘Well, it’s a bluegrass song, so it’s gotta be depressing, and it’s got to be about somebody leaving somebody else,’” Taylor said, with a laugh. “From there, I think we just started playing chords, and all of a sudden, there was a song there.” (Buffalo Bulletin).
The trio has just finished recording a new CD in Nashville, Tennessee’s Slawdawg Studios, and signed a one-single contract with the label Copper Mountain Records. That's when “West Virginia Train” was played on David Pugh’s Mountain Bluegrass show on Bluegrass Jamboree as well as other bluegrass shows on the radio.
“It’s so crazy now to hear this cut version of it getting played all across the country on Bluegrass Jamboree when I still remember the day we wrote it, when we were little kids,” Taylor said.
You can read more about their journey in a story filed by their local newspaper, The Buffalo Bulletin.

The ladies of Buffalo Wyoming, Prairie Wildfire Band, continue to crank out their hit songs on the Bluegrass Music charts.

The song is one of their best, the video brings to the listener the land that gives these ladies their inspiration.

Prairie Wildfire was formed in 2015 as the original band. PW is from Buffalo, Wyoming, and offers a blend of folk, bluegrass, country, and gospel.
With vocalist Sage Palser on mandolin, vocalist Morgan Blaney on bass, and vocalist Tessa Taylor on banjo, these dynamos have honed their harmonies, filled out their sound with original instrumentation, and written many of their own tunes.
The song in the video is their latest hit release.
The Blue Grass music scene from Nashville and across the Appalachian mountains, into Kentucky and the Carolinas plus Virginia and West Virginia love these ladies.
They are also a favorite here, way out West, as their schedule is filled with local gigs across Wyoming, Ohio, Nebraska- and they will even be headed to Nashville's famous Station Inn this summer.
