"The mountains of NC bleed great music. I'm proud to see another hometown guy making it. Andy's got a good future of good country music ahead of him."
- Jason "Rowdy" Cope of (Jamey Johnson)
If an artist is described as playing Southern music it’s fair to ask what kind. Country? Southern Rock? Rock N' 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 Marshall, 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 (Grammy nominee) 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, 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.
Andy got his first wave a big publicity when he and the band Cumberland River landed 13 songs on the hit show series featured on FX called "Justified". It was then Andy's career seem to take a huge leap to success and he wasn't even out of high school yet!
Today, at the young age of 23, Andy Buckner has embraced his roots by fully embracing the genre. His style mainly consists of Country, Southern Rock, 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 with my songs. If I could be known for anything it would be that my music inspired, touched, and healed the hearts, and minds of many lives all across the world."
