Greenville based Carolina Country band earns top billing on Rocky Mountain’s Gravel Road Best of 2015 list for their original song “Ain’t Got No Hot Water” from their album Scars and Bars.

“The recognition means a lot to us,” said lead singer and guitarist Greg Payne. “The Carolinas have a lot of great original music coming out and its rewarding to see how far the word has spread.”

Started in 2007, the five-piece country band has gone from local favorites on Thursday nights at Smoke on the Water to touring across the country from Oregon to Texas playing tours, rodeos and nitty-gritty honky-tonks.

2015 has been an exciting year for the group with their first Carolina Country Music Award nomination, several album reviews published in the US and Europe and their recent signing with Sweetwine Entertainment based in Denver, Colorado.

“We are thrilled with our recent acknowledgements and to be part of Sweetwine Entertainment,” said lead singer and guitarist Greg Payne. “Sweetwine Entertainment Group is home to a lineup of Grammy-Nominated and award-winning artists and we are honored to be part of their future success.”

Before hitting the road early next year, Greg Payne and The Piedmont Boys, will close 2015 out with their New Year’s Eve Show at the Pumphouse in Greenville, SC with special guests Erica Sunshine Lee and Jenna Lauren Thomason. Tickets are available at the venue in advance by calling (864) 735-0567.
