Hayseed Dixie began in the summer of 2000 in the fertile valley of Deer Lick Holler, deep in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains of East Tennessee USA. In this area which was completely isolated from outside cultural and musical influence, the boys grew up playing the traditional music of their forefathers on banjo, fiddle, mandolin, acoustic guitar and acoustic bass.

 

All of this changed abruptly one afternoon when a stranger crashed his car into a stately old oak tree on a particularly dangerous curve, which the locals refer to as the “Devil’s Elbow.” Sadly, the stranger expired, but his legacy lives on! As the boys searched through the wreckage looking for identification, they discovered several vinyl AC/DC albums. After playing these back on an old Edison 78rpm Victrola, everyone agreed that the songs were right fine country music . . . and that the Lost Highway of Brother Hank Williams and this Highway To Hell of AC/DC were indeed the exact same damn road!  And the rest is now enshrined in musical history.

 

Since the worldwide release of the first Hayseed Dixie album, entitled “A Hillbilly Tribute To AC/DC” on over 15 years ago on April 17, 2001, there have been many converts and disciples to the holy and inspired Rockgrass cause; however, Hayseed Dixie are the original creators of this noble genre. Accept no substitutes or imitations. 

 

Most recently, Hayseed Dixie are exploring the inspired catalogue of the stadium rock of the 1970’s and 1980’s. This interest began during a 2014 Spring tour of Germany, in which the band heard the song “Eye of the Tiger” 6 different times on 6 different German radio stations in a single day while driving between Dortmund and Frankfurt. “As the seed is planted, so the tree shall grow” - this very quote appears on the inner sleeve of the 1980 album “Escape” by Journey. How very true indeed.

 

+ Hayseed Dixie have released 15 albums since 2001, consisting of both original material and reinterpretations of previously rendered songs, selling a combined total of over 500,000 physical copies. These recordings have been digitally shared (legally and illegally) so many millions of times it makes the band want to laugh and cry simultaneously. Often they do. Alone. In the dark.

 

+ “Hair Down To My Grass” is the newest release from Hayseed Dixie and was recorded in the Mountains of Cumbria in a converted barn. It is their greatest album yet. Of course it is! It’s their most recent album!

 

+ Hayseed Dixie have performed over 1,000 live shows in 31 different countries.

 

+ Hayseed Dixie are the acknowledged creators of the musical genre, Rockgrass.
