Biography

Cary Hudson first became recognized as a
pioneer of a new music movement in the late eighties
while joined in songwriting partnership with John
Stiratt (Wilco) in The Hilltops, an alt-country band
born out of Mississippi. When Stiratt left the
Hilltops to play bass in Uncle Tupelo and then Wilco,
Cary Hudson formed the widely-popular Blue Mountain
that captured critical acclaim and gained cult status
among its followers. After enjoying a long and
successful run, and several popular releases on
Roadrunner Records, Blue Mountain disbanded and
Cary Hudson embarked on his solo career. With his
solo releases, Cary Hudson has perfected the roots
rock-n-roll tradition in a new, stripped down,
grittier style that returns “roots rock” to its roots.
His releases and performances have been well-received
by both critics and fans alike, proving that Cary
Hudson can transition from pioneer to powerful solo
songwriter and musician. His solo releases continue
to redefine the music that launched a movement. In 2007,
Blue Mountain reunited and in 2008 released two records.
Hudson has been making records for 20 years and now spends
Equal amounts of time between his band, Blue Mountain, and
his solo career.

Army Wives on Lifetime Ch. has featured the song, Skinny Dipping in a recent episode as well as the tv show CSI using the song, Midnight in Mississippi.

The new solo album, Seems To Me, will be released Dec. 2010 as well as an album w The Pineywood Playboys in 2011.
