They’re also 2/3’s of another trio called Delta Coast (along with co-writer Taylor Craven).

They are founding members of the Mississippi Songwriter’s Festival and perform at numerous other festivals including the Frank Brown Festival, Smoky Mountain Festival in Gatlinburg, and Six String Festival in New Orleans.
