Born in the rumbling cab of a stone truck and aged in the oak of Tennessee’s smoky night haunts, The Black Lillies have quickly risen to the forefront of the Americana scene. Founded by multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Cruz Conteras (co-founded of Robinella and the CCstringband), The Black Lillies have created their own unique brand of country, roots, rock and blues via Appalachia. The group, formed in 2008, also includes electric guitar and pedal steel whiz Tom Pryor and drummer Jamie Cook, both formerly of The Everybodyfields, bassist Robert Richards, and vocalist Trisha Gene Brady. Winners of Independent Music Awards honors in 2009, and 2012, the Lillies have been recently featured on CMT in their latest video release for their song, "Same Mistakes".
Having toured the nation non-stop since their inception, The Black Lillies have played such venues as The Ryman Auditorium, The Grand Ole Opry, Bonnaroo, National Public Radio's Mountain Stage, Americana Music Association Festival, Bristol Rhythm and Roots, just to name a few. You’ll leave this show feeling like you’ve witnessed an old-fashion Southern tent revival. These songs will haunt your thoughts long after the curtain closes, rattling through your head like a crooked screen door slaps against its frame when a storm is coming.
