Music in High Places

Music in High Places is a live album by the San Diego, California rock band Unwritten Law, released in 2003 by Earth Escapes. It was recorded live for the VH1 program Music in High Places and features the band performing acoustic renditions of their songs in various natural settings in Yellowstone National Park (with the exception of "Shallow," which was recorded acoustically in the studio). The version of "Rest of My Life" from this recording was released as a music video and reached #16 on US modern rock charts. The album peaked at #134 on the Billboard 200.

Most of the songs performed are from the band's preceding 2 albums, 1998's Unwritten Law and 2002's Elva. It would be the band's final recording with founding drummer Wade Youman, who was ejected from the band shortly after due to personal and professional issues.
