Rising out of the sweltering heat of Austin, Texas, The Band in Black originally burst on the scene back in 2004 as a Johnny Cash Tribute band. The Band in Black fuses boot-stompin countrified original music with road-seasoned twangy guitar rhythms, with just a touch of Southern style.

As well as including the rock covers that Cash recorded in later years, The Band in Black injects Delta Swamp Bottom boogie while balancing lead vocalist Jason Birdwell's homespun melodies to evoke their most satisfying brand of musical gumbo to date. With standout original tracks like "I'm Goin to Texas," and "City Lights", look for The Band in Black in the country rock landscape for years to come and an essential addition to any music lover's library.
