Band Biography

Among the most beloved and respected entertainers in the music industry today, The Karl Shiflett & Big Country Show keeps the spirit of the past alive with their 'Old School' delivery of Vintage Bluegrass and Classic Country Music. Harnessing the synergy and raw edginess of Classic Country Acts of the 1940's and 50's they bring the best of the past to the present with an energized fusion of bluegrass, western swing, honky tonk and classic country music. Delivered in a fast paced, high energy stage show around a vintage RCA ribbon microphone their name has become synonymous with quality family entertainment.

Their latest recording project 'Sho Nuff Country' on Patuxent Music Records received stellar reviews from both Bluegrass Unlimited and Bluegrass Today. Released in November 2016 the album quickly went to the #1 spot on Airplay Direct's Top 50 Country/Alt. charts. The single from the project'My Bucket's Got a Hole in It' made it's debut at #20 on the Bluegrass Today Top 20 single charts. The album peaked at #7 on the Roots Music Report Americana Country chart and remained in the charts (in various positions) through most of the year as well. At the end of 2017 the album placed at #37 in the Top 200 Americana Country Album charts for the year. All in all one of the band's most successful recordings in many years.

Over the years the group has performed at many of the major events in the nation such as Bill Monroe's Bean Blossom Festival, Merle Fest, Wintergrass, Bill Monroe's Home place at Jerusalem Ridge and Willie Nelson's 4th of July Picnic to name a few. They have toured extensively in the U.S.A. & Canada and have performed abroad in Europe. Their greatest notoriety however comes from their guest appearances on RFD-TV's 'Cumberland Highlanders' television show which has gained them countless new fans and made them a household name among the many viewers of the popular rural network.

When it comes to Bluegrass & Ole-Tyme Country Music it doesn't get much better than this. For a down home, audience pleasing, good natured, toe tapping good time this is one band you need to see. For more information visit www.karlshiflett.com
