The Mud Tour
The Palestine, TX-based Southern rock and Red Dirt country band are out on tour this year, in support of their 2016 album, "Mud". First formed in 2008 by lead Cody Jennings and his friend Cody Tate, they took inspiration from the musical stylings of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Hank Williams Jr. and Waylon Jennings, but soon moved into formulating their own unique take on Southern rock music. Their biggest single to date, Ballad of a Southern Man, was spawned by their second album, Firewater in 2011.
The seven-piece band comprises Jennings on vocals and acoustic guitar, Tate on lead guitar and backing vocals, guitarist and backing vocalist John Jeffers, bassist Gary Brown, drummer Jeff Hogg, percussionist Tony Kent and Jon Knudson on keyboard and fiddle.
