Rural Rhythm Records is proud to announce the formation of the new band AMERICAN DRIVE. This high octane bluegrass band includes group members of J.D.

AMERICAN DRIVE includes the talents of: Rickey Wasson (Lead/Harmony Vocals, Guitar), Dwight McCall (Lead/Harmony Vocals, Mandolin), Matt DeSpain (Lead/Harmony Vocals, Resonator Guitar) and Kyle Perkins (Bass) from The New South, who are joined by Justin Jenkins (Banjo) formerly with the bands Grasstowne and Blue Moon Rising.

“We are so excited about being a part of the AMERICAN DRIVE team. Rickey, Dwight, Matt, Kyle and Justin are about to start a new chapter in their musical journey that will surely delight Bluegrass fans all over the world. THE NEW SOUTH had the absolute privilege of supporting one of our legends in Bluegrass for many years…and now the time has come for them to step into the spotlight and continue to create top notch Bluegrass for years to come,” said Sam Passamano, President of Rural Rhythm Records.

Rural Rhythm is also proud to announce today’s new single release, “Long Haul Trucking Man” from AMERICAN DRIVE’s self-titled debut album scheduled for release on October 16, 2012.
