The group played for several years around the area entertaining others with their hard driving bluegrass. Work and other obligations took over and they stopped playing publicly. Fast forward to 2021, the band is back with the addition of vocalist-mandolin player from LaRue County, Linda Grimes; Hart County native Kendal Mabe on dobro – vocals, and Breckinridge Countian, Milton Emberton on banjo.
