about the festival From the outside looking in, one may look at the lineup of The Muddy Roots Festival for example, and wonder how an iconic hard core punk band from California like Black Flag, a hillbilly punk freak from Tennessee like Joe Buck, a golden-throated singer from Michigan like Rachel Brooke, a crazy hellbilly songwriter from the Pacific Northwest like Bob Wayne, a classic country singer/songwriter from times past like Red Simpson, and a blues legend from Missisippi like LC Ulmer could all be booked right beside each other and it work seamlessly. This illustrates the dramatic sonic and geographical diversity that goes into creating what we know now as the underground country roots, or “Muddy Roots” world. Below is a list of the disparate origins of Muddy Roots music that came together from a mutual understanding and appreciation of the roots of American music, and the epicenters where this music originated from and/or is thriving today. What is it? Turn off your radio and buy a ticket to experience the real stuff. It’s three days of music, camping, vintage cars, vendors, and pinups. From punk to traditional country, you will find something (if not everything) that you will love. Come spend your Labor Day weekend with a whole lot of cool people. Where is it? Located at the June Bug Boogie Ranch in Cookeville, TN., with free camping and hot showers. What are the rules? There is one main rule that should be kept in mind —at all times: “Don’t be a JERK.” Before doing anything please ask yourself if what you are about to do is something a JERK would do. If so, kindly stop. That could mean sneaking in, stealing anything, driving drunk, being rude to performers and well you get the point. (Anybody caught sneaking people in will get the whole car load kicked out. No tolerance for stealing from your favorite festival and bands.) NO UNAUTHORIZED PETS ALLOWED ANYWHERE ON THE FESTIVAL GROUNDS. No firearms. No bad attitudes. Violators will be asked to leave. No Golf Carts or ATV’s Unauthorized vending is not permitted. NO illegal drugs, weapons, fireworks or NITROUS TANKS are allowed on the festival grounds. Violators will be ejected from the facility and subject to prosecution under local, state, and federal laws. Underage drinking is strictly prohibited. Park only in designated parking areas. If your vehicle is found in an unauthorized area it will be towed to the on site tow lot and a fee will be assessed. NO GLASS PLEASE Respect the environment. Please use trash and recycling bins provided by the festival. Please be respectful of your neighbors and consider their comfort. HAVE FUN . It’s an official rule!

Backwoods Heathens return to Wall Street in Murfreesboro, one of our favorite venues, and with South Texas touring band Barnyard Stompers! About Backwoods Heathens: This metal powerhouse from Middle Tennessee incorporates their punk, outlaw country, blues, and rock influences into their everchanging, but always intense, driving, progressive metal sound. They are known for their fun, energetic live shows, hard work ethic, and their "down to earth", and "open to network with" approach. Many members have come and gone but all have left their own influence and contributed to the band that Backwoods Heathens is today. Backwoods Heathens are currently in the studio recording their first EP which is scheduled to be released in 2014 and gearing up for their 2014 tour dates. About Barnyard Stompers: Outlaw Garage Country from South Texas!! Check out www.barnyardstompers.com or http://www.reverbnation.com/rpk/barnyardstompers for show dates! Biography Casey Miller and Megan Wise are the power duo known as Barnyard Stompers. The two have collectively played in many legendary roots music outfits including The Hillbilly Hellcats and The Bop Kings. They have teamed together in order to combine several generations of Outlaw Country, Texas Stomp, Blues, Rockabilly and Dark Hillbilly, creating a new sub-genre known as Backwoods Twang. Barnyard Stompers definitely have a style all their own; however, they hold true to the stylings of the pioneers of roots music such as Johnny Cash, Tex Ritter, Bukka White, Blind Willie McTell, Bill Monroe, Roy Rogers, Waylon Jennings, Carl Perkins, Hank Williams and more recent artists like Scott H. Biram, Flat Duo Jets, Black Keys, Dropkick Murphys and Junior Brown. In less than a year, Barnyard Stompers have released a seventeen track debut CD, The Way-Gone, Wild and Rockin' Sounds of Barnyard Stompers as well as their new release, Outlaws with Chainsaws, and have played well over two hundred shows. The duo has performed in front of fans in over 20 states. The Stompers will be touring Europe in October and November of 2013. Casey Miller plays a mean guitar and harmonica as he sings in the traditional stylings of Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Elvis Presley and Robert Johnson. Never taking himself too seriously, his kazoo skills always stir up a laugh from fans. Megan Wise plays all things percussive and produces a big, full sound as she pounds the skins in her very own style that must be heard and seen. Her vocal style is reminescent of Kitty Wells and she can also swing a steady rhythm on acoustic guitar. Folks say that Barnyard Stompers sound like a full live band to which they reply, "We ARE a full band." The power duo certainly hold their own as they run circles around most four or five piece bands. Those who are into true rocking, down-home, roots music owe it to yourselves to check out Barnyard Stompers. "That stain on the lead singer’s overalls could be barbecue sauce, but it’s probably blood. Such is the raw outlaw-garage-country-psychobilly-punk appeal of Barnyard Stompers, the Denver-based ne’er-do-well duo that’s going to burn down Bill’s Place in a free, early evening Sunday show. These guys have an album called “Outlaws and Chainsaws,” after all. Oh, you know what? That’s barbecue sauce AND blood." - Yakima Herald Republic (6/27/13) "BUY THIS ALBUM!! Straight-up hell-raisin', barn-burnin', cow-punkin’, hillbilly rock and rollin' from the power duo of Casey Miller and Go Go Wise… There’s even a nod to “Mad” Maynard Horlick in there somewhere." —Hepkat of The Rock and Roll Jamboree Radio Show "You know it has been a long time since I have found a band that I enjoy listening to on repeat… Barnyard Stompers is one of those bands. Members are Megan Go-Go Wise and Casey Miller. The talent with these two is simply amazing. As stated in “Got me a Trailer” this album will, ‘blow your f’n doors off!’” —Colorado Music Buzz Magazine
