Already hailed by Rolling Stone as a “New Country Artist You Need to Know,” West Virginia four piece THE DAVISSON BROTHERS BAND continue their climb next week with their official GRAND OLE OPRY debut.
Set for Tuesday, February 12th, the appearance serves to highlight the band’s undeniably authentic country sound – rooted in the acoustic traditions of their Appalachian home, but also featuring a smooth pour of crowd-pleasing Southern-rock energy on tunes like “Po’ Boyz” and “Jesse James.”
Invited to perform on the historic GRAND OLE OPRY stage by longtime friend, champion and Opry member Chris Janson, the achievement marks another bucket-list honor and dream come true for the band of brothers – which includes real-life siblings Donnie Davisson (vocals) and Chris Davisson (guitars), plus bass player Russell Rupert and drummer Aaron Regester.
“Wow…thank you, thank you, thank you. We are honored and humbled. Being asked to perform on the Grand Ole Opry stage makes our years of hard work worthwhile…this has been a lifelong goal,” shares Chris Davisson. “The chills that came over us with that phone call will forever be treasured. We appreciate the Opry for believing in us and look forward to standing in the circle where country music was created.”
Produced by Grammy-award winner Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band), THE DAVISSON BROTHERS BAND’s 2018 album FIGHTER arrived to wide-spread acclaim last May, earning the band accolades from outlets like Rolling Stone and The Boot and peaking at #3 on the US Heatseekers Chart. Filled with scrappy small-town pride and celebrating the hard-working ways of the common man, the single “Po’ Boyz” became a digital hit in Australia, and led the band to be included on the coveted CMC Rocks festival lineup in 2018.
The band is currently touring hard all across the Eastern half of the U.S., with dates scheduled from New Hampshire to South Carolina and a spot on Michigan’s Faster Horses Festival lineup culminating August 29th at Bash on the Bay in Put-In-Bay, Ohio.
