This hit-making group rose up out of the ashes of a tragedy after founder Dave Simonett found most of his music gear stolen by a group of car thieves. Left with only an acoustic guitar, he began to form a new band - one that wouldn't necessarily rely on amplifying equipment, making bluegrass an appealing option. Lesser bands might have seen not having ever played bluegrass music before as a kink in their plan, but for Simonett it merely posed a challenge. Completing his lineup with other bluegrass newcomers proved to be the key to this group's success, as they were able to combine the speed and passion of rock 'n' roll with the wholesome, traditional sounds of folk.
This was the stand out point on 2004 debut album Songs from a Ghost Town. Marrying folk with rock 'n' roll, it took a while for bluegrass fans to warm up to this more contemporary sound. In fact it wasn't until fourth album, Duluth that the group found support from the community, resulting in the record entering the top ten Billboard bluegrass chart.
