(Morgantown, WV) West Virginia University football is more than a sport in the Mountain State…it’s a way of life. Which is why it’s surprising that there has never been a song written for and officially recognized by the University specifically to celebrate the culture of WVU and all Mountaineer sports. That has all changed now as Clarksburg, WV’s Davisson Brothers Band and one of the greatest Mountaineers ever, Owen Schmitt, have teamed up to write and record “Here Come The Mountaineers.” Interestingly, the first release of the song via radio was exactly 40 years to the day after the release of the celebrated “Country Roads” by John Denver.

If you have been to a home football game at Milan Puskar Stadium this season or last, then you have heard this song blaring through the stands just before kickoff. If not, you may have heard one of the local radio stations playing it heading into the weekend before a big game. The song has now been officially released for fans to purchase either as a download at itunes or on the band’s website, and as a physical CD in select retail outlets around the area.

The Davisson Brothers Band have made a name for themselves in West Virginia and surrounding states, and are quickly breaking into the national music scene, signing earlier this year with William Morris Endeavor (the world’s largest talent agency), and playing events such as Jamboree in the Hills, DelFest, and hitting the road with the Charlie Daniels Band. Their brand of music is a product of growing up in the mountains of West Virginia blending country, blues, bluegrass, and southern rock into a sound uniquely their own. Owen Schmitt is the poster boy for what it means to be a Mountaineer football player. He walked on as a freshman, then went on to be the leading fullback in Mountaineer history and will always be remembered for his trademark hurdle over defenders--and is now the starting fullback for the Philadelphia Eagles. A few years ago Owen and the Davisson Brothers were introduced and they formed a fast friendship and have remained close. Owen began performing a song here and there with the band, and now in the offseason he’s on the road with the guys every chance he gets.

Last year it was suggested by the Athletic Department that Owen and the band try to write a song for the university, so they met in Nashville with hit songwriter and producer, Phil “Philbilly” O’Donnell to do just that. With the combination of Owen’s inside knowledge of what it means to be a Mountaineer, Chris and Donnie Davisson’s experience growing up in the shadows of Morgantown, and Philbilly’s craftsmanship, they walked out of the studio with a song that’s sure to welcome the Mountaineers onto the field for years to come.
