Catch us in 2023! 

We are late getting an update to you this year, but man, 2023 has been a blast for us so far and it's just getting started. We have a lot of shows on the calendar for this Spring & Summer, and the best news is, it looks like we will FINALLY be releasing our 2nd album this year. We know, we have said that quite a few times over the years, but this time, we really mean it! The recording process is over, so now we just work on the preparation of getting everything to you in the best possible format we can! More to come on this in the very near future. Until then, come see us live--we'd love to hang out with you!! 

We can't wait to see YOU throughout 2022! 

We have eased back into live performances. We did a few shows in the fall of 2021 and we played an amazing show in Iva, SC in early March of this year. But now the floodgates have opened and we are back at it--and we cannot wait! We will be performing at the 2022 Cumberland Trail Spring Festival in late April, we'll be Cherry Street Tavern's Artist in Residency every Thursday night during the month of July, we are headed to Clayton, GA in July and then headed to Ben's hometown of Marshall, NC in late September.

We could go on and on because we are so excited about these upcoming performances, but why don't you just head over to our SHOWS page to learn more. We hope to see you out there somewhere!!

2021 Update...

We're baaaaack... 

We have been pretty quiet during the first few months of 2019, but we are gearing up for some new shows in May and cannot wait to perform for you all again! We will be a part of the Guerrilla Showcases at the SERFA Conference in Chattanooga on Saturday 5/18 and then will turn around the very next day on Sunday 5/19 to be a part of the festivities in the Chattanooga Choo Choo gardens for a Blues, Bluegrass & BBQ event for Mental Health Awareness Month. After that, we will return to Anderson, SC on Sat 7/20 for what will sure to be a fun night. But keep checking back on the website as we continue to add more dates, as well as more details for these shows already scheduled. Also, we are still in the studio working on our new album, but we may have a new single to tide you over very soon. Stay tuned....

One last single before the year ends! 

We are still working on our new album, but we wanted to go ahead and release one last single for you before the year ends. And there couldn't be a better time to release Shiver! We have been playing this one out live for a while now, but it's never been recorded. With the excellent production from our good buddy Nick Lutsko, we're proud to finally share it with you!

Back at it again! 

After months and months of constant touring, we took some much needed time off to spend quality time with our families. Now that our kids remember what we look like, we are back at it again with a slew of new shows. It all starts this Saturday 9/30 at The Rooftop Hop in downtown Chattanooga. And while you are here, please check out all of our upcoming shows. We hope to see your smiling face at a few of them! Oh, and we may even have a handful of new songs for you to hear.....
