If an artist is described as playing Southern music it’s fair to ask what kind. Southern Rock? Outlaw County? Rock and Roll, Blues, Bluegrass? In the case of Andy Buckner, the answer is “all of the above” in one talented musical package.
Buckner absorbed his influences honestly. Born and raised in the mountains of North Carolina, he’s from a long line of musicians and started singing in church at age 4. He knew he wanted to be a performing musician after seeing David Holt play with Buckner’s first cousin Josh Goforth, and became obsessed with trying out every instrument he could find. By the age of 16 he was a multi-instrumentalist playing bass, banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, dobro and more. During this time he discovered his calling as a songwriter, while maintaining a busy schedule competing at festivals, touring and performing with many established artists and bands.
"True country music at its best, from a REAL COUNTRY BOY. Nothing fake about Andy Buckner....just saying...from "THE BACKPORCH:
Andy's music comes from an honest place. He IS the guy in the song, you can feel the emotions he sings about. That's what music is all about, and that's why I'm a fan of Andy Buckner!"
Grammy winner and Mountain Heart member Jim VanCleve characterizes Andy Buckner as “truly the next generation of country music personified, in my opinion. He’s writing his own material, and he’s playing his own instruments… and excelling at both. He has what it takes to become a household name in country music.” Today, Andy Buckner has embraced his roots by fully embracing the genre. His style mainly consists of Southern Rock, Outlaw Country, Rock and Roll, Blues, and Bluegrass. "Just good Southern Music"
Andy states. "I want my music to be heard all over the world. Mainly I want people to listen to the words that I write and be able to relate their lives and the things that they go through. If I could be known for anything it would be that my music inspired, touched, and healed the hearts and minds of many people all across the world."
