play artist mix

Hayseed Dixie is an American band which began in 2001 with the release of their first album, A Hillbilly Tribute to AC/DC. The band performs a mixture of cover versions of hard rock songs and original compositions in a style that is a unique fusion of bluegrass and rock music and they are acknowledged as the creators of the musical genre "Rockgrass". The band's name is a linguistic play on the name of the band AC/DC. The project was originally called AC/Dixie on the first pressing of the debut album, but they respectfully heeded the request by lawyers from Sony Music to either change the name or face a copyright infringement lawsuit. Claiming to hail from Deer Lick Holler, Appalachia, the band has played over 1,000 live dates in 31 different countries since 2001.
