Highway 101

One of the most popular country bands of the late '80s, Highway 101 boasted an influential country-rock sound that helped pave the way for the blockbuster superstars of the '90s. The group was fronted by singer/guitarist Paulette Carlson, a Minnesota native, and assembled by manager Chuck Morris in Los Angeles in 1986. Morris pulled together Jack Daniels (guitar), Curtis Stone (bass, guitar, mandolin), and drummer Cactus Moser, all of whom were seasoned session pros; Daniels and Stone had also worked together as the Lizards. Highway 101 signed with Warner Bros. and issued its self-titled debut in 1987. It was an immediate success, as the first two singles -- "The Bed You Made for Me" and "Whiskey, if You Were a Woman" -- shot into the country Top Five. The next two, "Somewhere Tonight" and "Cry, Cry, Cry," both went to number one, and seemingly overnight, the group members had become stars. Their 1988 follow-up, Highway 101, Vol. 2, spawned another chart-topper in "(Do You Love Me) Just Say Yes," and three more Top Tens in "All the Reasons Why," "Setting Me Up," and "Honky Tonk Heart." Following 1989's Paint the Town, which contained one further chart-topper in "Who's Lonely Now," Carlson left the band for a solo career in 1990. She was replaced by Nikki Nelson, who debuted on 1991's Bing Bang Boom; however, despite some decent-sized hits, the new version of Highway 101 wasn't quite as commercially successful, and the band soon parted ways with Warner. They signed with Liberty for 1993's The New Frontier, but the album flopped, and Daniels subsequently left the group. He and Carlson temporarily returned to the fold for 1996's Reunited, released on the smaller Intersound label. Curtis Stone and Cactus Moser later formed a new version of Highway 101 with vocalist Chrislynn Lee and guitarist Charlie White, and recorded Big Sky for FreeFalls in 2000. White left in 2002 and was replaced by Justin Weaver. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

saw them do a live show in the late 80s Jack Daniels is a way underated guitar player, check them out doing Dire Straits " Setting Me Up "
Paulette Carlson has such a distinctive voice, can't imitate her. Loved Hwy 101.
Saw them in 1990 in a small (300 person) theater at a small amusement park in Denver. It was Elitch Gardens at the time. They put on a fantastic show, and I got to meet Paulette Carlson afterwards. No group will ever have a sound and style like them - I still miss Highway 101!
There still playing on the road. Mostly in the Midwest and South. They're based in Nashville. Same great sound

love 101 ,They turned me on to Country..
This group has put forth a number of great hits,don`t hear them anymore..the y were very good in their prime..
Is this the same voice I heard on a cow-punk band in the early mid-80's? Any input would be nice.
Paulette Carlson is from Hawley, Minnesota. Super band in the late 80s and early 90s.
