    The “outside the box” use of traditional chord structures infused with haunting yet catchy melodies, set The Hardin Draw apart in the Americana music genre.
    Southern Folk band, The Hardin Draw announces the release of their debut album, “Burn This Town”, for digital purchase on December 9, 2014. “Burn This Town” was recorded and produced by Grammy nominated performer, Morgan Jahnig, of Old Crow Medicine Show.
    The Hardin Draw Old Crow Medicine SHow
    What began in 2011 as a five piece evolved into a group of seven musicians, who compliment each other’s eclectic musical backgrounds to create a unique style, which is rapidly gaining recognition. This Tennessee based band has toured all the way from New York down to New Orleans, which is the city that inspired the new single from “Burn This Town”, Southern Queen. The Hardin Draw is a classic “do it yourself” band that has recently joined forces with Roots Union Records, a division Muddy Roots Music, to make this release a reality. On December 9th, “Burn This Town” will be available online anywhere digital music is purchased.

    Urban Pioneers sign with Roots Union Records, A division of Muddy Roots Music Recordings and release their album “Addicted To The Road” on ITUNES this tuesday as well!

    We sent them packing to Europe for a tour with our good friends the Freeborn Brothers with a suitcase full of 12” vinyl records! Get to a show if you can and pick up the vinyl release of “Addicted To The Road” or grab it online with a free download. When you order from the label direct you get a free download code. *Offer ONLY available through Roots Union Records. GREEN or MIXED COLOR vinyl.

    Urban Pioneers
    With a lifetime of music between them and half a decade of music played together, Liz Sloan and Jared McGovern have been the backbone of some of today’s greatest underground roots bands. Currently both members of Jayke Orvis and The Broken Band, the pair have shined light on many other acts such as Bob Wayne & The Outlaw Carnies and Filthy Still.

    Most recently, Liz and Jared have been touring the United States and a healthy portion of Europe as the old-timey Americana act Urban Pioneers. Liz’s awe-inspiring fiddle combined with Jared’s claw-hammer banjo and storytelling lyrics recall the pure Appalachian sounds of yesterday, light-heartedly summed up by the band as “hillbilly music”.

    Now with Guido Greaserag on upright bass (we believe that to be his Christian name), the three-piece stick to their motto, “on tour now, on tour always”, as they trek their way through the USA in support of their new album, Addicted to the Road.

    First Band Announcements For Muddy Roots 2015!

    We are thankful to have our good friends at Cracker Swamp Productions sponsoring a stage at the 2015 Muddy Roots Music Festival. For folks that don’t know, Crack Swamp is the area of Florida that their label is from. True to form there is no distinct style of music or genre booked on their stage. Muddy Roots also has swampy roots!

    Al these bands are known to kick ass on stage but there is one in particular that hold a special spot in our hearts as it was the first band we ever booked as Muddy Roots when doing shows in East Nashville in 2009. This band had been touring from Los Angeles to Minnesota for the Deep Blues Festival and made time to drive down to Nashville just for our show. Real good dudes and absolutely face melting with a blend of old roots music and death metal…. WE WELCOME BACK FOR A ONE TIME PERFORMANCE, “LOS DUGGANS!!!!”

    Get your tickets now for only $95, which includes free camping at this link HERE! Price goes to $125 when we announce the full lineup.

    Dying Girl: Put Me In Coach. (The Tillers Fundraiser)

    Hello Friends did you watch the story on CBS Sunday Morning about Lauren Hill? She is a good friend of The Tillers and they need your help.

    If you’ve been paying much attention to the news around town you may be familiar with the heart wrenching tale of our young local hero, Lauren Hill. The brave 19 year old with an inoperable brain tumor who, with an estimated life expectancy of just a few more months, continues to be a shining example of strength and courageousness despite her challenge. In her remaining days, Lauren has chosen to live and to fight alongside ‘The Cure Starts Now Foundation’ to raise awareness for pediatric brain cancer, DIPG and to one day find a cure. It is no wonder that our local girl’s inspiring story has spread around the world.

    In honor of Lauren, The Tillers and Muddy Roots Music Recordings will be donating %50 of Tillers merchandise sales profits raised in the month of November to ‘The Cure Starts Now’.

    So when you come out to a show and pick up one of our items or make an online purchase you’ll also be supporting this great foundation. Also available at live shows will be these awesome screen printed ‘Tour For A Cure’ posters designed by Neltner Small Batch. Check out www.the-tillers.com for a complete schedule of our November shows.
