    After 20 Years Jerry Jeff Walker Returns To Nashville

    It’s been about 2 decades since Texas country legend, Jerry Jeff Walker played a full set in Nashville. Jerry is known for his monumental role in the 60’s & 70’s Country music scene. Jerry Jeff is also known for bucking the system by walking away from the “Nashville Recording Industry” in the 1980’s to start his own record label, “Tried and True Music” which falls right in line with the DIY spirit of Muddy Roots Music Events. Enjoy a full 90 minute set with all the classics.

    Another Country music legend, Bobby Bare will join us on stage bringing you all the hits. Bobby Bare has played our Muddy Roots Music Festival and was quoted saying “Now this is how it’s supposed to be done. This is how a festival should be.” We can’t tell you how honored we felt knowing Bobby was not only playing his music for us but that he felt right at home. That the music was in context to the festival climate. We’re proud to bring Ol’ Bobby to the prestigious Grand Ole Opry House stage!

    East Nashville’s very own honky tonk rounders JP Harris & Joshua Hedley represent the local sound just before Bobby Bare takes the stage.

    Deke Dickerson carries over the Nashville Boogie Vintage Weekender 50’s vibe with an all-star house band with guest appearance by Big Sandy & Billy Harlan. Billy played the Grand Ole Opry in the 1905’s playing bass for Jim Reeves and also the Wilburn brothers.

    The evening kicks off with local “Honky Tonk Tuesdays” revivalists from the American Legion Post 82, East Nashville’s very own The Cowpokes!

    The 5th and Final Spring Weekender

    Join us as we bring an end to what has been a great chapter in the Muddy Roots book. This June we will be hosting our 5th and final Muddy Roots Spring Weekender in Brown County, Indiana. We like to say it’s the most beautiful of all our venues set back in the hills with tall tress and our own lake to boat or fish. James Hunnicutt once mentioned how he was able to perform one of his most intimate sets there as he closed his eyes and let the trickle of the creek that wraps the stage fill his soul. Her poured it right back all over us with incredible songs.

    The first MRSW took place in Adams, TN. at the Red River Canoe Campgrounds in 2013. We wanted to provide an event that would hold folks over til’ the big Muddy Roots. Waiting a year for your favorite music festival can be brutal. It’s like a long distance relationship. We very much enjoyed the venue but decided to move up to Indiana to expand the Muddy Roots brand in to new areas but more importantly to build a stronghold for Muddy Roots bands. 5 years later and the region is flourishing with boutique roots festivals. All of which book “Muddy Roots” type bands. Mission accomplished. It’s time to focus our limited resources on supporting these other events as well as expanding the sound in to new areas.

    If you are not in the woods with us this year you’ll unfortunately miss your chance to experience the magic of this beautiful property. We do cap the tickets to keep the event small and cozy. There are only a couple hundred available at this point. GET YOUR TICKET HERE!

    We put together some of our favorite moments in Indiana for you set to the music of Joseph Huber who is performing this final edition of the Muddy Roots Spring Weekender.

    Rolling Stone Posting About Muddy Roots Brasil Fest!

    We’re kicking off our first Muddy Roots Brasil festival and have already got the attention of Rolling Stone down there. Pretty bad ass if you ask me. We definitely had to stop and tell you about it. You can check it out HERE.

    rolling stone brasil

    It’s pretty great that there is a blossoming scene down there and we get to head down like rock n roll roots missionaries to help organize it. We love our South American Muddy Roots familia.

    This all came about with the help of our good friend and Muddy Roots Records artist Mary Lee & The B-Side Brothers. You can find her music all over the interwebs like Itunes, Spotify, etc.
