DB Bryant & Pinetop Lightning
Sharing the same roots as Jamey Johnson, Blackberry Smoke, ZZ Top and Waylon Jennings, PineTop Lightning, in one form or another, have been on the road 300 days out of the year for more than 10 years. From festivals and roadhouses to juke-joints and concert halls, they have built a solid core of loyal fans across the nation.
Having performed through the years with their many friends in Southern music, icons such as .38 Special, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Johnny Van Zant and Molly Hatchet, Kid Rock and many others. DB Bryant and company caught the eye of Grammy-nominated producer Joe Taylor, and, together with three-time Grammy-winning engineer Chris Theis, entered the studio to create the project that is now known as Pinetop Lightning.
Pinetop Lightning will have a new full length album coming in the Spring of 2015. It will be released on Moonwatcher Music and distributed through Burnside Distribution. It will contain eleven tracks including the single “Gun Control”.
