Blackwater Southern (formerly Backwater Still) - Blending Southern Rock & Country Classics since 2003

A blend of southern rock and classic country, Blackwater Southern plays a little of everything, from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Merle Haggard to the Allman Brothers, plus several originals. Their tight harmonies pay homage to groups like the Eagles and Alabama and they bring their signature harmonious sound to just about everything they play. Their typical territory is TN and North GA and every show brings something unique depending on the audience. The guys are always up for requests and sometimes even play songs that are unrehearsed! No matter the song, their shows are always crowd pleasers. 

No matter the venue, from small restaurants like Puckett's in Chattanooga to popular tourist stops like Ole Red in Gatlinburg, the guys play a great show, looking to get the crowd involved with music they can sing along with, all the while staying faithful to their country and southern rock band roots. If you're interested in hearing them play, make sure to check the home page for updated events. If you'd like to book them for a show, please fill out the contact form and one of the guys will be in touch.
