Breakout Country Trio Old Hickory Strike Gold In Toe Tappin' Debut Album
Comprised of North Carolina’s Andy Austin, Ohio’s Dan Alley, and Kentucky’s Timothy Baker, the three vocalist/guitarists look to the harmony-laced groups country past for inspiration – from Shenandoah and Alabama to Restless Heart and Rascal Flatts. Thanks to a little music city magic, their debut project Tuesday Nights at Scoreboard was born out of a popular weekly gig at the famous Scoreboard Bar & Grill in Nashville.
With a timeless sound, fresh stories and harmonies that is nothing short of swoon worthy, the 15 track debut album is nothing short of spectacular. “We are incredibly proud of this project and think we have put our best foot forward with these 15 songs,” says Timothy Baker. “We’ve played them week after week at gigs here in Nashville and getting the opportunity to record them and make our first album together has been an amazing experience. Whether you’re cranking up this album at a Friday night bonfire or on a Sunday afternoon drive, we hope it makes you feel like you’re sitting in the audience at one of those ‘Tuesday Nights at Scoreboard.’”
Perhaps the magic in this album is that there are no gimmicks. The trio's innate ability to find acute parts of life and make them universal speaks volumes. Straightforward and true, Old Hickory's artistry and approach is solum found in the over produced landscape country music can often find itself in. Highlighted through idyllic lyricism and brilliant melodies, their debut album is one that you do not just simply walk away from. Whether it’s around a campfire, on a road trip, or relaxing at home, there’s a song on the album for those moments. Allowing fans to get lost in your artistry is something this genre so desperately needs and damn does Old Hickory deliver.
