Southern Drawl Band
Southern Drawl Band
Southern Drawl Band from Knoxville and Nashville Tennessee: "is Southern Rockin' Country music with a twist of lime distilled in the backwoods of Tennessee."

Southern Drawl Band has been touring the U.S. from coast to coast since it's beginnings in 2012."Tirelessly building our grass roots fan base from the ground up is the key to our success" says Mike Nash, frontman and guitarist for the band. "We have been honored to have won several awards for Band of the Year as well as Entertainer of the Year beacuse of the support of our incredible fans who will regularly drive hundreds of miles for our shows and who have spread our message like wild fire".

*

During their rise, Southern Drawl Band has had the honor of gracing the stages of many major artists. From legends such as Lynyrd Skynrd, Charlie Daniels Band and Jimmy Buffett to classic country artists like Aaron Tippin, Neil McMcoy, and Pure Prarie League right up to modern day stars such as Brantley Gilbert, Blackberry Smoke and Justin Moore.

One of the band's most exciting achievements came in 2012 when the University of Tennessee debuted the video for the band's rocked up, barn burning version of "Rockytop" on the jumbo-tron at Neyland Stadium to a sold out crowd of over 102,000. The song went on to smash radio charts and is one of the most popular versions in America being played on NBC's Sunday Night Football for millions of viewers in celebration of Peyton Manning's record breaking touchdown pass in October of 2014.

Working with Grammy nominated and Dove Award winning producer Travis Wyrick on their first three studio albums and proven hit writer's such as Thom Shepherd ("Redneck Yacht Club"-Craig Morgan, "Riding with Private Malone"-David Ball) Aaron Scherz ("The Rock"-Tracy Lawrence, "Girl in a Country Song"-Maddie & Tae) and Chris Robbins ("Ride"-Martina McBride) as well as musicians like Andy Wood (Rascal Flatts), Rob Hajacos (Garth Brooks), Thomas Jenkins (Sammy Kershaw) and Doyle Grisham (Jimmy Buffett), the band has won several awards for Album of the Year and Song of the Year as well as several nominations for a variety of awards including placing #50 on Country's Top 100 of the Year. Their music has been used in television programs on stations such as GAC (Great American Country) and CMT (Country Music Television) and the band is also one of the featured performers in the 2016 Mailboat Records release of "Parrotheads the Movie" as well as the soundtrack.

Southern Drawl Band's music can be heard on major radio stations all around the country thanks to regular rotation on the Nationally syndicated radio program OutlawNation.com as well as on Sirius XM's Radio Margaritaville & The Highway. They can also be found on uncountable numbers of Internet radio stations around the globe including Music Road Radio.com, Beachfront Radio.com, and iTunes radio. Capping all this off, in 2015 SDB partnered with Norwegian Cruise Lines to host an annual Caribbean cruise each April boasting an attendance of over 500 cruisers and fans.

Much like their derivative name, Southern Drawl Band is a melting pot of sound, styles, attitude and entertainment. Defined in categories like Country, Southern Rock, Tropical Rock, and even Bluegrass, Southern Drawl Band attracts a range of listeners from a broad spectrum of music genres and audiences. Their unique trait of extraordinary music and song writing, along with impressive entertainment style and unforgettable live performance is what sets this band apart from others in their class.
