Blue Mountain is the fourth studio album by contemporary Christian musician, Brandon Heath, released on October 9, 2012 through Reunion Records. Produced by Dan Muckala, the album debuted at number 5 on the US Top Christian Albums chart.
The album fleshes out characters created for, and residing in, a fictional Appalachian setting called 'Blue Mountain,' which, as is frequently the case with great art, are slices of the storyteller himself. "As a songwriter and artist I have a responsibility to take risks," says Heath. "Usually I'm telling my own story. I wanted to tell other people's stories this time, so I created a space and characters that would allow me a new canvas to paint on." "Through them, I'm more outside of myself, but maybe more true to myself than I've ever been," Heath continues. "Funny enough, by the time I had finished this record, I realized that 'Blue Mountain' is me."
