Muddy Roots Fests - Sept 3rd and 4th - Cookeville, TN

Throughout the summer there are all kinds of music festivals happening around the US from Jazzfest in New Orleans to Bonnaroo in Tennessee to Lollapalooza in Chicago and even Maryland Death Fest in Baltimore, but none really cater to outlaw country. We also have our new festival dates with the Rumble Fests that bring in a mix of outlaw country and punk attitude with vert skating, bands and all things that custom and motorized.

Well, if you haven't been clued in as of yet the Galaz fellas have been putting together a festival called Muddy Roots and in its second year it looks damn great. So damn great in fact that we are packing up and being a vendor there for the entire weekend. Be on the lookout for us as you will not be able to miss our booth. We have a big project in the works to make us seen and heard along with quite a few bands hanging out in our "mobile" lounge. Come hang with us, Hellbound Glory, Ronnie Hymes and Southbound Turnaround as the music won't stop all weekend wherever we are.
Get your passes for Muddy Roots Festival

Here is the full write up on the fest from Saving Country Music

y all accounts, last year’s inaugural Muddy Roots Festival was an overwhelming success. The lineup was amazing, the performances were spectacular, and all the brave people that made the trek to Cookeville in middle Tennessee said the experience measured somewhere between a life changing event and a religious experience. Good times, good people, good food, and of course, good music. The only thing missing was YOU.
So this year for the second installment, we need to fix that. If you like the music that is talked about on Saving Country Music, then this is the premier event of the year. There is nothing bigger, and nothing better. And when you factor in all the bands you will be able to see for the price they’re asking, it’s a bargain. But the music is just the excuse. To a man, the 2010 Muddy Roots participants all boasted about the camaraderie the event created between the fans and artists, and between each other, and the friendships and memories they walked away with lasted well after the music stopped.

Saving Country Music is dedicated to being the hub of information about all things Muddy Roots leading up to this year’s festival September 3rd &4th, being held once again in Cookeville, TN, just outside of Nashville.

The beginning of the lineup can be seen below, but please note more names will be added later, and some could change leading up to the event.

Tickets are $55 in advance, and $70 for walk-ups. But think of this like buying a ticket for a show. Think of it as someone throwing the biggest backyard party imaginable, with any and all of your favorite bands traveling from all around the country to be the entertainment, and this is just you pitching in for a keg and paper plates.
