    and the County Line Grass

  • About

    Tommy Brown cut his teeth on classic, traditional bluegrass. A third generation musician, Tommy began pickin' the five-string banjo at the age of six. His powerful banjo style garnered him both the Kentucky State and Tennessee State Banjo Championships. His impressive pickin' style and soulful vocals embrace his passion for the mountain-style music he performs today.

     

    The County Line Grass was formed in 1991 with a group of friends who just happened to live across the county line, thus the name, Tommy Brown & the County Line Grass. These days the band is more of a family affair with Tommy's children and close friends joining him. Son Jereme plays lead guitar and lends his poignant lead, tenor and baritone vocals to the group. With an instrument twice her size, daughter Rachel skillfully provides a solid, yet spirited rhythm on acoustic bass. Wayne Fyffe rounds out the group on fiddle. His energetic fiddle will make you get up and dance and his emotional back-up work provides the perfect complement to the groups moving ballads.

     

    Tommy Brown and the County Line Grass is signed with Randm Records and has released their latest album, Leaving This Town.

     

    Pleasing audiences around the nation while still holding true to their beloved traditional, mountain-style bluegrass, you don't want to miss this entertaining group!

    ""Leaving This Town marks the ninth release from Tommy and his County Line Grass since they formed the group in 1991. It’s become a family affair over time, with son Jereme playing lead guitar – also in the Stanley style – and daughter Rachel providing a solid bass with just the right amount of movement. They are joined by Josh Runkel, who shares both lead singing and songwriting duties with Tommy, and Wayne Fyffe providing old timey fiddle.

     

    All play and sing expertly, but what makes this record such a treat is the material, a mix of new and old songs, all perfectly suited for a ’70s-era bluegrass treatment. The album starts out with the keen crack of Brown’s arch top banjo on Dick Reinhart’s Fort Worth Jailhouse, spelling out what is to follow. Song after song, it’s unapologetically, hard core, straight up bluegrass borrowing heavily from the Stanley tradition." - John Lawless - Bluegrass Today
