Comin in hot & heavy, their ranks are expanding at an alarming rate. Conceived in 2004 by proprietors Keith Mallette & Ryan Tackett, it is clear that the takeover has begun as they've opened 6 fully operational chapters throughout the United States & planted a shiny new headquarters deep in the heart of Austin Texas. The mission is set to reach a goal of 15 to 18 franchised chapters into to 2009. Hillgrass Bluebilly has booked & promoted over 500 concerts & events and are comin' to a town near you!

In the current music market of the digital age, a breakdown of the roots and Americana movement has occurred. The white noise of cheap & accessible downloads has drawn a rift between artists and their would be core audiences. It would seem as though no one is adventuring to listen outside their playlists. Hillgrass Bluebilly makes you listen! Rounding up an incredible line up of acts, ensuring if you are drawn to one, you’ll love the others, putting the hunger back into the listening experience & ever expanding our "Dirty Foot Family". This is the new sound of the old ways, a rebirth of passion, conviction & instrumentation, an equality of sound and skill that isn't trying to sell you anything, just bringing TRUTH, back to its roots.

Another outlet they use to create accessibility to customers and clients is their involvement in film, television & radio. Several artists in the Hillgrass Bluebilly family have lent their talent to these mediums, the most recent being Slowboat Films: The Folksinger along with song appearances in the movie, The Waitress and television series such as My Name is Earl and Dog - The Bounty Hunter and live appearances on The Jerry Springer Show.

They are set up to spider web, creating Hillgrass Bluebilly Entertainment franchised chapters in every time zone in the U.S. eventually extending the mission abroad to European & Australian facilities.
