• The Dirt Drifters

Nashville is a magnet for musicians hoping to be stars or at least build a career. There’s still work available for songwriters, studio musicians, and hired guns for live shows, and I suspect that the five members of the Dirt Drifters, who hail from four different states, ended up in Music City by chasing some of it. Their bio says, “They bring resumes that embrace country, rock, funk and R&B to bear on a gritty, lyrical roadhouse country that offers something substantial to the heart, the mind and the dance floor,” so I’m thinking that some or all of these guys have been mercenaries willing to play any style that paid the bills. But in Nashville, obviously, twang is king (or rather it was and still is to some degree).
