WEST FARGO N.D.—Country music is taking over the Red River Valley Fair Thursday night.

And amid the music, is a family gathering.

WDAY anchor Amy Unrau was at the fair, and she has a special connection to one of the bands performing there.

They're known for their hit songs 'Make you mine' and 'She's with me.' But before Brad and Curtis Rempel got big, 'High Valley' toured a lot of North Dakota.

Coming from small-town Canada, these country music stars are used to venues like this at the RRVF, now, they're traveling the world.

WDAY exclusively met up with them ahead of their concert during their meet and greet and asked a little bit about what it's like being brothers, and traveling the world in a tour bus.

"Definitely family situations, I mean every situation is a sibling situation for us," said Curtis.

And sticking to the family theme...

"I don't you if you guys know this (WDAY viewers) but we (Amy Unrau and 'High Valley') are cousins," said Curtis.

They definitely got more of the height, and singing abilities from the family genes than I did.

Either way, for these guys, it's all about family.

So being in West Fargo at the fair feels like home to them.

Coming up Friday night, 'Brothers Osborne' performs.

Then on Saturday, it's 'Seether.'
