LiveWire Official Website:
Edgy, honest and passionate, LiveWire's unique sound blends elements of working man's Country and rootsy Southern Rock. The band's music has found success at Country radio, both in the U.S. and in Europe, and its videos have received airplay on CMT Pure, ZUUS Country, The Nashville Network and Yallwire. Major media outlets including Billboard, MusicRow, Roughstock, Music News Nashville, the Texas Music Chart, and Maverick magazine have all touted LiveWire's talents. Since forming in the mid-'90s, the group's reputation as a top-shelf live act has been honed by years of opening for, and performing on the same bill with, Toby Keith, LeAnn Rimes, Mark Chesnutt, Kix Brooks and Texas/Red Dirt artists Casey Donahew Band, Kyle Park and Bo Phillips, among many others. The band has performed across America and on the hallowed stage of The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville as national finalists in the 2009 Colgate Country Showdown. LiveWire released a self-titled EP in 2011 which included its debut radio hit single, "Tater Fed." After signing with Way Out West Records, LiveWire released a video for "Tater Fed" and a single and video of "Miracle Of The Human Spirit," which benefited the group's storm-ravaged hometown of Joplin, Mo., struck by an EF-5 tornado in the spring of 2011. LiveWire released its debut album LIVIN' on Way Out West in late 2012. The critically-acclaimed album produced the hit singles "Lies" and "Whiskey Sunday."
