Swingabillies will be in concert New Year’s Eve


CROSSVILLE — The Swingabillies band has one foot in the past and one foot in the future. This band has roots from deep in the heart of the Delta Land. One of the band members was raised in Memphis during the rock explosion. These East Tennesee boys bring mountain soul to their music.

Their new CD, "Just Another Night Down The Rockabilly Highway," is a music mix for all ages. Their title song tells the story of Tennessee Highway U.S. 45, the legendary Highway now known as "The Rockabilly Highway." This CD is rockin' from the remake of  Eddie Bond's "Bear Huntin With a Switch," about legendary west Tennessee Sherriff Beauford Pusser, to heartfelt songs like the story of Sam Philips the founder of Sun Records in Memphis, penned the night after Rock and Roll King Carl Perkins died. This Rockabilly music is almost all original.

Band members Earl, David, Trevor, Brent, and Johnny will be quick to tell you, "Rockabilly is the heart of Rock and Roll." Catch the Swingabillies New Year's Eve at the Cumberland County Community Complex along with the Texas Troubadores, and a long list of great entertainers.
