The band hails from western North Carolina and was formed in 2008 by guitarist Audie McGinnis, banjo picker Zane McGinnis, and Lee Shuford on reso-guitar. More recently, current members Tim Gardner on fiddle, Ty Gilpin on mandolin and Matt Warren on bass have come aboard. All but Zane share in the vocals, with Audie taking most of the leads.
Seven out of ten tracks on the record are band originals, including the single, a contribution from Shuford. Images in the video are taken from historic photographs of the city of Cherryville, NC where the band was founded, courtesy of the Cherryville Historical Society.
Gardner and Gilpin produced the project, which Ty said was paid for the old fashioned way, by all of them working day jobs.
Any radio programmers who would like a copy for airplay is invited to contact Gilpin by email.
