From the Band
The band formed in 2012 with some of the areas finest and most experienced musicians. After spending years in the "classic rock and blues" grind where we couldn't distinguish ourselves from anybody else in town, we decided to follow our hearts and return to our country roots, thus, Backwoods was formed. The founding premise was to play hard-edged real country music with a traditional feel and message spanning from the '70s to current. We balance it all out with a dose of southern rock and off-the-wall stuff. Hold onto your hats folks — this stuff kicks.
