Central Illinois artists take a backseat to nobody when it comes to new music.

The debut full-length from Darius, current releases from Stone & Snow and the Way Down Wanderers, Backyard Tire Fire's first batch of new songs in almost a decade, a touching, intimate EP from Sarah & the Underground, and new music from John Till and Jared Grabb show the wealth of talent the 309 possesses.

Folk, pop, rock, soul, gospel, Americana, jazz, blues (and then some) are all part of the reason we say "you never know what you'll hear traveling Highway 309, but we guarantee it will be good."

Listen to Highway 309 on-air weekends and overnights on WGLT and WCBU, and streaming 24/7 on both station websites.

Here's all the new music added to Highway 309 in 2021, via our continually updated Spotify playlist.

Jon Norton is the program director at WGLT and WCBU. He also is host of All Things Considered every weekday.
