Biography

Mixing gasoline and nitro would make a pretty impressive explosion, though nothing like the high-powered alt-country performance from these blue-collar boys from Birmingham. They’ve been called the bastard sons of Southern Rock and they have the pedigree to prove it: claiming influences as far-flung as classic rock and alt-country, not to mention classic country, punk and R&B. They use it all to make a sort of turbo-tonk stew of equal parts rock-n-roll and southern-fried raucous country.

This five member blue-collar band from Birmingham, Alabama is not trying to change the world just provide an escape from the daily grind with some Southern humor, hospitality and a hell raising stage show that makes music lovers everywhere stand-up and take notice. One taking notice is Billy Block of Western Beat Entertainment who said, "I have seen over 4,000 bands in the past ten plus years here on Western Beat and Caddle is without a doubt in my top three." Another taking notice is Sirius Radio’s channel 63 Outlaw Country station, which recently added three cuts from Caddle’s newly released album, “Raise ‘em High.”

Caddle has opened shows for artists such as Billy Joe Shaver, David Allan Coe, Hayseed Dixie, Molly Hatchet, the Reverend Horton Heat, Supersuckers, Burden Brothers, Dale Watson, Webb Wilder, The Exies, El Pus, Bobby Bare, Jr…as well as many other committed musicians with the dedication of breaking new markets one at a time. With music to record and tours to book, the band is trailblazing in high volume and a magnetic sing along style.

Caddle is hitting the road and sharing their music in hopes that you will jump in the van and join them on the ride.
