Southern Band to Watch: Shovels & Rope

Shovels-and-ropeShovels & Rope


Name: Shovels & Rope
Hometown: Charleston, South Carolina

Sounds Like: A sweet blend of rock and country with twangy melodies that will get your feet moving.
The duo, consisting of Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst, perform with a medley of instruments including a snare, harmonica, guitars and tambourines. A tear in Cary Ann’s voice will take you back to the days of Tammy Wynette, as she sings heart-piercing lyrics laced with a gritty Southern sound.

If You Like: Townes Van Zandt, The Secret Sisters, Dead Fingers

“Birmingham” The upbeat tempo and catchy lyrics is perfect for a summer day with the windows down.

Shovels & Rope is currently on tour! Check out their schedule to see them live.

    My little “sporty spice” loved these as well and did a great job painting her own nails since the strokes are similar to drawing.
