    SDB's Rockytop Roundup-Townsend, TN

    Ready for a weekend getaway like no other? We've played a lot of your back yard's, now we're inviting you to come play in ours! We're kicking off the party Friday September 23 in beautiful Townsend Tennessee and keeping it going all weekend long! We've got camping, river rafting, fishing, snipe hunting, motorcycle rides, a pig roast, homemade ice cream, ghost stories, corn hole, football, moonshine....oh yea, and then a couple shows with Southern Drawl Band! Whew, that's a lot for three days! Itinerary: Friday 9/23: 12pm-? arrive, set up your camp site and get the party started. 4pm-6pm Corn Hole tournament (with prizes) 6-8pm Supper (available for purchase-food truck on site or visit local restaurants) 8pm- Ceremonial lighting of the bon fire (and a sip of moonshine) 9pm-11:30pm Friday night welcome party/performance from Southern Drawl Band Midnight Snipe Hunt (bring your flashlight and gloves, these suckers are mean!) Saturday 9/24: ?-10am Breakfast (available for purchase-food truck on site or visit local restaurants) 11am-3pm River Rafting/Tubing (transportation to/from provided, lunch available) ^ If tubing isn't your thing, you'll find tons of stuff to do in a short drive 4pm Homemade Ice Cream Competition 6pm-8pm Southern Style Pig Roast Dinner (included in ticket price) 8pm-11:30 performance by Southern Drawl Band 11:30-? Ghost Stories and S'mores by the campfire (there'll definitely be spirits around!) Sunday 9/25: ?-10am Breakfast (available for purchase-food truck on site) 10am-6pm Bike Ride with the band: Let us show you our back yard the best way possible, on two wheels! We'll lead you from our campsite across the breath taking Foothills Parkway to Chilhowie Lake. From there we'll test your riding skills through Deal's Gap (Hwy 129) better known as "The Dragon". This ride isn't for beginners, in fact The Dragon has been called the Number One Motorcycle Road in the entire US for years. If you can hang, you'll experience the ride of lifetime through 318 curves in 11 miles. If you manage to "slay the Dragon", we'll stop in at the Deals Gap Motorcycle Resort for a cold one (and so you can pick up your sticker, patch or tee shirt and proudly display your victory) before moving on to "The Tail of the Dragon". Then it's a short ride up to the Cherohala Skyway...a breathtaking 60 miles of scenic mountain highway. We'll circle back in Tellico Plains for a quick 1 hour ride back to the camp and stick around another night to finish off by the fire with great friends, stories from the weekend and whatever's left of the moonshine! (Thanks to our friends at Smoky Mountain Harley Davidson, we will have bikes available to rent. Please ask us for more details) If motorcycles aren't your thing, here's our suggestions for other things to do for the day: *Drive over the mountain to Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg (30 min drive) for shopping/sightseeing *Drive up the mountain to Great Smoky Mountains National Park (15 min drive) *Drive up to Cade's Cove. A scenic mountain tour through the countryside and wildlife (15 min drive) *Drive across the mountain to Wear's Valley for shopping/sight seeing (20 min drive) *Do some fishing directly across the highway in the Little River or take a short 20 min drive to Chilhowie Lake *Drive across the breathtaking Foothills Parkway for sight seeing (10 minute drive) *Drive up to Townsend for sight seeing/shopping and tourist stuff (15 min drive) 6pm-? Finish off the weekend with us by the campfire. The food truck'll be gone, but I'm sure we can find some hot dogs and burgers to cook up. And if there's any moonshine left, you can bet the boys in the band'll most likely break out the acoustics by the campfire and keep the party going til the wee hours of the morning! We understand that many of you will have to get back to the real world and not be able to stay with us Sunday, but feel free to take your time tearing down camp...you'll have all day and night! Monday 9/26: we'll need to be packed up and gone by noon. Your ticket price includes: Campsite for tent or RV for weekend (RV space is limited-ask about details. Please note: No shore power will be available and only limited water and generator power for the basics) Free parking (off site/secure motorcycle parking also available at no extra cost) Friday/Saturday night performances by Southern Drawl Band Saturday afternoon tubing/rafting trip down the Little River (transportation provided) Saturday night pig roast (we've got the pig in the ground and the beer on ice!) Corn Hole Tournament There will be a food truck on site with food available for purchase the entire weekend If you've never been to our neck of the woods here in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains of East Tennessee here's a great opportunity to visit. We will be camping on a private 42 acre spot right in the heart of the Smoky Mountains between Maryville and Townsend TN. If roughing it in the wild isn't your cup of tea, there are plenty of hotels within a 15 minute drive either direction so you can still come party with us and join in the festivities. If you have the extra time in your schedule, make time to visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park which is only a 15 minute drive. Or plan to spend a night or two in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg (just a 30 minute drive over the mountain). If you're into fishing, we have some of the best trout fishing in mountain rivers you'll find. There's also three lakes within a 45 minute drive! With Maryville and Townsend only 15 minutes either direction, you won't be too far from civilization....plan to grab your supplies on the way. Or drive out to enjoy all the local restaurants and shopping just a stones throw away. There's horseback trail rides, putt putt golf/go karts, tons of stuff to do. ALSO for our Florida Gators and Tennessee Volunteer fans, Saturday night September 24 is the showdown at Neyland Stadium which is about a 45 minute drive from us. You might decide to hit the game and join us for the after party! Event/Property address: 4412 East Lamar Alexander Maryville, TN37804 Flying in? You'll be coming into Knoxville's McGhee Tyson Airport (TYS). Our SWFL friends should check out Allegiant Air who has unbeatable rates from Ft Myers. The airport is an easy 30 minute drive to our campsite, We are working on providing a shuttle to/from the airport so please let us know if you're in need and we'll try to and put it together. *Please note: there will not be showers on site but we will have ample and clean port-a-potty's. There will be general water available as well as generator power for the basics, but camp sites will not have individual water/power. **There will not be an actual "ticket" for this event. Your name and how many admissions you've purchased will be on a list at the entrance and you'll be given an armband and parking pass for the weekend.

Biography

Southern Drawl Band based out of Nashville and Knoxville Tennessee

"is one of the Nation's hottest emerging bands, ranking top among the best live performances to come along in decades" (Lorren Cornelius-former Geffen Records Promotions).

A "must see, swampy grit of modern country combined with a rockin' your face off stage performance that brings back the days when bands knew how to put on a show" (Dermott McCormack-Sony/Viacom Programming).

 

Sweating out their own brand of rockin' country music distilled in the backwoods of Tennessee, Southern Drawl Band has been relentlessly touring the U.S. from coast to coast since it's beginnings in 2012. Aggressively playing over 200 shows a year to sold out crowds of fiercely loyal fans. "Tirelessly building our grass roots fan base from the ground up is the key to our success" says Mike Nash, frontman and guitarist for the band. "We have been honored to have won several awards for Band of the Year as well as Entertainer of the Year beacuse of the support of our incredible fans who will regularly drive hundreds of miles for our shows and who have spread our message like wild fire".

 

During their career Southern Drawl Band has had the priviledge of sharing the stage with many wonderful artists from legends such as Lynyrd Skynrd, Charlie Daniels Band and Jimmy Buffett to classic country artists like Aaron Tippin, Neil McMcoyand Pure Prarie League right up to modern day stars such as Brantley Gilbert, Blackberry Smoke and Justin Moore.  One of the band's most exciting achievements came in 2012 when the University of Tennessee debuted the video for the band's rocked up, barn burning version of "Rockytop" on the jumbo-tron at Neyland Stadium to a sold out crowd of over 102,000.  The song went on to smash radio charts and is one of the most popular versions in America being played on NBC's Sunday Night Football  for millions of viewers in celebration of Peyton Manning's record breaking touchdown pass in October of 2014. 

 

Working with Grammy nominated and Dove Award winning producer Travis Wyrick on their first three studio albums and proven hit writer's such as Thom Shepherd ("Redneck Yacht Club"-Craig Morgan, "Private Malone"-David Ball) and Chris Robbins ("Ride"-Martina McBride) as well as musicians like Andy Wood (Rascal Flatts), Rob Hajacos (Garth Brooks), Thomas Jenkins (Sammy Kershaw) and Doyle Grisham (Jimmy Buffett), the band has won several awards for Album of the Year and Song of the Year  as well as several nominations for a variety of awards including placing #50 on Country's Top 100 of the Year.  Their music has been used in television programs on stations such as GAC (Great American Country) and CMT (Country Music Television) and the band is also one of the featured performers in the upcoming Hollywood movie "Parrotheads" set to release in 2016.  Southern Drawl Band's music can be heard on major radio stations all around the country thanks to regular rotation on the Nationally syndicated radio program OutlawNation.com as well as on Sirius XM's Radio Margaritaville & The Highway. They can also be found on uncountable numbers of Internet radio stations around the globe including Music Road Radio.com, Beachfront Radio.com, and iTunes radio.  Plans for the band's first international tour dates are currently being finalized for shows in Mexico, Canada and even a Caribbean cruise in April of 2016 in addition to many of the major music festivals in the U.S.

 

Much like their derivative name, Southern Drawl Band is a melting pot of sound, styles, attitude and entertainment. Defined in categories like Country, Southern Rock, Tropical Rock, and even Bluegrass, Southern Drawl Band attracts a range of listeners from a broad spectrum of music genres and audiences. Their unique trait of extraordinary music and song writing, along with impressive entertainment style and unforgettable live performance is what sets this band apart from any other on the market.  In 2016 the band recieved their first major tour sponsor in the Black Coral Rum company who has signed on to sponsor the 2016 tour and beyond.  The company will even be releasing a reserve line of rum titled "Black Coral Rum's Southern Drawl Elixir" in conjunction with the relase of the band's 4th studio album "Elixir" in 2016. 

 

Southern Drawl Band was formed by lead vocalist and guitarist Mike Nash and drummer Larry Dunsmore in May of 2011. From there, other members Paul Wray (bass), David Crow (lead guitar) and J.D. Edge (fiddle/vocals) have strategically been added to form the group they are today.  Since 2012, Southern Drawl Band has generated a national fan base of over 40,000 and is performing at many of the nation's leading festivals along side some of the biggest names in the business. The scope of success for Southern Drawl Band is continually intensifying as each day unfolds and their star is unquestionably on the rise.
