Witness you now that Appalachian Rockgrass hellraisers, Hayseed
Dixie, have completed their 8th full-length studio album.
"Killer Grass" is either Hayseed
Dixie’s absolute greatest musical achievement or absolute
worst offence yet, depending on your personal perspective! The CD
DVD package contains 7 original compositions along with 6 reinterpretations
of previously known songs about drinking, cheating, killing and hell
- with a particular emphasis on murder and death. The DVD contains
music videos for 6 songs as well as 5 instructional "tutorial"
videos addressing everything from how to play rockgrass banjo, to
how to hide the body. On the road on tour throughout 2010, the suspects
are known to be armed with acoustic instruments and should be considered

From the fertile valley of Deer Lick Holler, deep in
the heart of Appalachia, comes a sound that is old yet new. In an area
completely isolated from outside cultural and musical influence, this
band of acoustic musicians grew up playing the traditional music of their
forefathers. Then, as fate would have it, one crisp fall afternoon a stranger
passed through the holler. Well, he almost passed through.
Unfortunately for him, but fortunately for appreciators of great music
worldwide, the stranger crashed his muscle car into a stately old oak
tree at Devil's Elbow curve. Sadly, the stranger expired, but his legacy
lives on. In the back seat of his car the boys found a box of old vinyl
records as they went through his belongings looking for some identification.
The name of the band on the records was AC/DC, and though
all they had on which to listen to them was an old Edison Victrola that
only played at 78 R.P.M., the boys all agreed that it was mighty fine
country music - a bit different, but mighty fine just the same.
In memory of the stranger who had perished, the boys set about learning
these new songs, injecting elements of their own traditional mountain
style. And thus, from these unlikely beginnings, an entirely new musical
and cultural synthesis was set in motion. Rockgrass was
born. As if the Creator Himself had uttered, "Let there be Rockgrass!"
