The Dix Hat Band charted for the first time on the Texas Music Chart this week! “In and Out” came in at #49 on the TMC and at #54 on the TRRR! Check out the music video below!
Over the course of playing on the order of 150 dates in 2013, Dix Hat Band has honed a tightly knit, high-energy live show, playing in venues all over Texas and venturing into New Mexico, Colorado and Nevada.
They have been fortunate enough to have shared the stage with many established artists such as Robert Earl Keen Jr., Zane Williams, Mark Mckinney, Brandon Adams, Charla Corn, Larry Joe Taylor and Bleu Edmondson. The unofficial release of their freshman EP Cliff Dance has been received so far with nothing but enthusiastic feedback from fans and critics alike, being played throughout regional radio stations in Texas and overseas in Sweden. Following the release of Cliff Dance, Dix Hat Band got busy playing and touring as much as possible while maintaining day jobs with goals to further the business. Now that the waters have been tested with the EP, they intend to officially release a single from it in the near future while wasting no time writing and preparing for their first full length album.
With influences that span the musical spectrum from Pantera to Willie Nelson and Zeppelin to Chris Thile, Dix Hat Band’s music has been described in as many ways as there were descriptions. They don’t adhere to any specific sound, allowing each song to occupy its own niche. Innovation, honesty and some elusive, unnamed factor hold the threads together that make up the sound of Dix Hat Band. Also worth mentioning are the fans and friends that have been picked up along the way, proving their loyalty again and again as the crowds keep growing every time the van rolls into town. After noteworthy success pounding the pavement for the last year the band has been focusing their energy on the upcoming LP, which will be released in 2014.
