Atlanta-based sleaze rockers Nashville Pussy are led by the husband-and-wife duo of singer/guitarist foulmouthed hillbilly Blaine Cartwright and incendiary lead guitarist Ruyter Suys; featured bassist Corey Parks (sister of NBA star Cherokee Parks) and drummer Jeremy Thompson, the group (named in reference to a line from Ted Nugent's Double Live Gonzo!
LP) debuted in 1998 with Let THEM EAT PUSSY, originally issued on indie Amphetamine Reptile. An underground hit, the record was reissued on major label Mercury that same year, and the song "Fried Chicken and Coffee" was nominated for a Grammy for Best Heavy Metal Performance. Parks quit in early 2000 and was replaced by Tracy Almazan for HIGH AS HELL. The album came out on TVT and helped grow their cult following as well as touring with MOTORHEAD, SLAYER, LYNYRD SKYNYRD and ZZTOP. Successful international tours and several soundtrack and compilation appearances kept Nashville Pussy busy in the interim before moving to Artemis for 2002's SAY SOMETHING NASTY. The live DVD Keep on F*ckin' in Paris! appeared in 2003. The band returned two years later with the GET SOME! LP in 2005, marking the debut of bassist Karen Cuda. Followed in 2009 by FROM HELL TO TEXAS, the band's first album for SPV Records. In 2014, Nashville Pussy returned with their sixth studio album, UP THE DOSAGE, introducing their latest bassist, Bonnie Buitrago. 10 YEARS OF PUSSY, a compilation of SPV's Hits was released in 2015 ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
