Artist Resume

Whether they’re playing as a headliner or supporting some of the greatest Rock/Pop/Latin/Country acts from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and 00’s, Tennessee River commands their audiences with their powerful 7-part harmonies and stage presence. Playing to both large and small audiences and venues alike, even prior to their incarnation as Tennessee River, the band has consistently proven their talent and professionalism over a very broad and eclectic range of musical styles. Alex Ligertwood, front man of the 70’s super group Santana, has stated “These guys have got to be, hands down, THE most talented group of musicians I’ve ever played with that wasn’t yet signed to a major label. Your harmonies are incredible…”


Though the band plays primarily as either a headliner or an opener to some of the most well-known country acts in the world, Tennessee River has also followed other creative paths to expand their musical palettes. Much in the same way the Eagles sung back-up harmonies and played for Linda Ronstadt before they hit it big, the band has both musically and vocally supported some of the most influential front men and players in rock and roll today.
