The lines between music genres can sometimes be blurred. These days, country
music has become fodder for numerous experimental musicians. Country fans have witnessed hip-hop, rock, pop, R&B and soul mingled with country with some interest- ing results. The All Jacked Up Tour will bring together four innovative up-and-comers that refuse to follow the rules.
This bill will feature Millry native Bobby Hiatt. Hiatt’s original tracks such as “Hundred Miles from Birmingham” are steeped in tradition with backwoods alto vocals and down- home harmonies sliding across acoustic-based arrangements. Then, Hiatt hits listeners with “Down in Dixie.” This edgy, country-rock anthem surprises listeners with a vocal appearance by local hick-hop rapper Tommy Chayne.
Robertsdale’s Jesse Howard will also be appearing at Soul Kitchen. His non-traditional
take on country has resulted in the original track “Outlaw.” This track buffers modern country sounds with an edgy hook filled with rock grooves.
Hailing from Greeneville, Tenn., Jay Davis is adding his trademark mix of country soul
and hick-hop to the All Jacked Up Tour. Davis could be the lineup’s most versatile artist. One song could feature his smooth soul crooning cushioned by a country arrangement. The next song could be filled with rock, country and hip-hop.
Nu Breed will bring Polk County, Fla., to Soul Kitchen’s stage. This artist adds a rough- neck attitude to his original material that is a
mix of modern country rock and hick-hop. Nu Breed will fill his set with tracks from his latest album, “Trespass.”
