The Mountain is the eighth studio album by Steve Earle (backed the Del McCoury Band), released in 1999 (see 1999 in music). The songs were written by Earle with musical accompaniment provided by the famous bluegrass band of Del McCoury. The album was a significant departure from Earle's previous work, being the first wholly bluegrass album he had written. Earle made the album as a tribute to the founder of bluegrass music, Bill Monroe, who had died in 1996.
Featuring The Del McCoury Band. I was born on this mountain a long time ago Before they knocked down the timber and strip-mined the coal When you rose in the mornin' before it was light To go down in that dark hole and come back up at night. I was born on this mountain, this mountain's my home She holds me and keeps me from worry and woe Well, they took everything that she gave, now they're gone But I'll die on this mountain, this mountain's my home . Guitar, Vocals Steve Earle. Release Date February 23, 1999. The Mountain Steve Earle. 2. Yours Forever Blue.

Carrie Brown" could have come from the very pen of "the father of bluegrass" himself, Monroe, and "Connemara Breakdown" has plenty enough fury to carve its own niche in the bluegrass tree. Anyone who saw Earle perform with the McCoury Band was anxiously awaiting a CD, and with The Mountain, the wait is over. The smooth strains of "Pilgrim," with its unparalleled roster of guest artists, fills the room, and everything in the world seems just a little bit happier. Steve Earle has truly gone to the mountain and had his vision quest answered in the unmistakable tones of a Dobro, a banjo, and a guitar.
