Thus Hayseed Dixie was formed and set out to record some of these new songs in their own mountain music style, the way the Good Lord intended. The first Hayseed Dixie album, “A Hillbilly Tribute To AC/DC,” contains stark-raving-plastered hillbilly re-workings of 10 classic AC/DC songs. Released worldwide on April 17, 2001, much to the surprise of everyone involved, this debut album proceeded to sell more than 150,000 copies in the first year of its release in the US alone. So the boys hit the road in the Summer of 2001 to play some live shows, chase some women, and drink some beer & whiskey. And they haven’t stopped since.
Hayseed Dixie have released a further 16 studio albums of hillbilly re-workings of rock and pop songs along with many satirical original songs - playing bluegrass instruments with a rock & roll attitude and delivery. Accept no imitations.
