About A Mile has received a warm response from radio programmers across the nation:
"As a Music Director you can get pretty jaded and closed when dealing with new bands and artists. Then every once in a while someone blows open your expectations and reminds you why you do this. Adam, Luke and Levi [About A Mile] did that for me." -- Ben Milton, WGTS, Washington D.C.
"I was completely blown away by the fire and passion About A Mile pours into their music and moved to tears by how raw, real and transparent they are willing to be. No doubt hearts will be moved and lives will be touched after an encounter with any one of their songs." - Brandi Lanai, KSGN, Riverside
"I haven't seen this kind of passion from an artist in a while; the transparency in their stories and songs is incredible..." -- Theresa Ross, WTRJ, Jacksonville
