From the fertile valley of Deer Lick Holler, deep in the heart of Appalachia, comes a sound that is old yet new. In an area completely isolated from outside cultural and musical influence, this band of acoustic musicians grew up playing the traditional music of their forefathers. Then, as fate would have it, one crisp fall afternoon, a stranger passed through the holler. Well, he almost made it through. Unfortunately for him, but fortunately for appreciators of great music worldwide, the stranger crashed his car into a stately old oak tree at Devil's Elbow Curve. Sadly, the stranger expired, but his legacy lives on. For under the back seat of his car, the boys found some old black vinyl records as they went through his belongings looking for identification. All they had to listen to them on was an old Edison Victrola that only played at 78 R.P.M., but the boys all agreed it was some mighty fine country music. So, in memory of the stranger who had perished the boys set about learning these songs . . . " As it turns out, members of AC/DC became aware of Hayseed Dixie just as they were beginning to tour. AC/DC bassist Cliff Williams invited the band to play at a tour-wrap party, and even joined them onstage to play bass on "Have a Drink On Me." The boys picked up several CDs by the group, Kiss, and verily verily it was revealed to them that they had found absolute kindred spirits. Barley was especially taken by the song "Cold Gin," and though he still personally prefers corn whiskey at room temperature, he found the sentiment overwhelming - to which the heartfelt vocal delivery of the song on the CD bears witness. The path was then absolutely clear. And the boys set out to record the songs from the Kiss catalog which they found most closely testified to their own personal experience. And record them they did. In two inspired days, start to finish. Whether you're a fan of Kiss or AC/DC or Bluegrass or even both, you have to see what Hayseed Dixie adds to these two tributes to these legendary bands.

Original and cool - AD/DC Bluegrass style. I bought this CD but I only listened to it once. It gets old immediately. These guys are really good but I hope they plan to move on. I'd buy their second CD for sure, provided it isn't based solely on AC/DC.
