History of the Band
Just a group of guys hanging out in a local bar talking about when they played in a heavy metal band. Got thinking and decided to hang up the heavy metal and go Country. Our lead singer was the drummer in the band he played in. Never sang before but had always wanted too. His younger brother was the lead guitarist in the Heavy Metal Band but hated country music. He decided if they would play upbeat country songs he'd give it a try. The Bass player played in several bands when he lived in Georgia. The drummer had played in several bands and wanted to try something different. At first they just got together to see how things would go and they all decided that they really liked their sound and decided to get serious. They now practice 3 times a week and try and play several shows each week if possible. They all have jobs. Three of the band members lay tile for a living. One works in real estate and the other is a part manager for a local dealership. For now, they are enjoying what they are doing!
