Hot off the heals of their highly acclaimed recent album release Home Is Where The Heart Is, (released in Australia via Red Dog Recordings), Countrytown and KIX Country will this week bring Australian country fans a special event, live from Nashville, from the Davisson Brothers Band.

The Po’ Boyz themselves will headline Southern Rounds Presents The Davisson Brothers Band, LIVE from Analog at Hutton Hotel in Nashville Tennessee this Thursday August 3 from 10:00am August 3 Australian Eastern Standard Time.
The event will be live streamed as it happens via Countrytown, with a radio broadcast on KIX Country to follow on Saturday August 5 at 10:00am Australian Eastern Standard Time.
Home Is Where The Heart Is features songs from some of Nashville’s most celebrated songwriters, including Wyatt Durrette and Rob Snyder, who will join Chris Davisson and Donnie Davisson to perform and share special stories about songs from the album, as well as song from their broader catalogue of celebrated country hits.
In addition to their contributions to Home Is Where The Heart Is, both guest writers have significant writing credits to their name.
Wyatt Durrette is the Award winning co-writer of Luke Combs #1 hit ‘Beautiful Crazy’ and the Zac Brown Band hits ‘Chicken Fried,’ ‘Toes,’ as well as ‘Whatever It Is,’ and ‘Highway 20 Ride.’
While Rob Snyder is the co-writer of the Luke Comb’s #1 hit ‘She Got The Best Of Me.’
The event will be hosted by Country and Americana songsmith Dave Kennedy, who has written for the likes of Travis Tritt, Riley Green, Whiskey Myers, Drake White and Larry Fleet.
The Davisson Brothers Band recently released the new music video for the album’s latest single ‘Home.’ It’s now in rotation on CMT in Australia.
The Davisson Brothers Band are a genre-blurring mountain rock band formed in Clarksburg, West Virginia, by Chris and Donnie Davisson. Along with nephew Gerrod Bee and life-long family friend Aaron Regester, the band has created a uniquely authentic Appalachian country sound.
They are fiercely independent, proudly self-sufficient, non-conforming, adventurous, open-minded, and 100-percent original.
Their new 12-track album Home Is Where The Heart Is are a tribute to the culture that guides their lives.
“We like to think we’re still evolving and going new places, but most importantly, we represent our family, our home state,” says lead guitarist Chris Davisson.
“We come from somewhere, and that means the most to us. Our heritage and our culture, our history, we like to represent that the best we can, and that’s on our mind at all times. We are loyal to where we come from, and I think that resonates in our music,” he continues.
Home Is Where The Heart Is was produced by Brett Cobb and David “Ferg” Ferguson (Sturgill Simpson, Tyler Childers, Margo Price),
Shortly after releasing their hit single ‘Po Boyz’ and then arriving in Australia for the first time in 2018, the Davisson Brothers Band famously received a very public endorsement by Australian country superstar Lee Kernaghan during the CMC Music Awards. Their acclaimed performances at the CMC Rocks Queensland festival took place several days later.
The Davisson Brothers Band returned to Australia in 2019 as international headliners at the Groundwater Country Music Festival.
The album's opening track and new single 'Home' starts with a lonesome fiddle that pulls the listener back in time, back 100 years or more to the front porch of a deep-hollow homestead, before harmony vocals tell a tale of chasing dreams, and true purpose. Simultaneously the easiest and hardest song he ever wrote, Chris Davisson agonized over every lived-in word for months before his co-writers helped finish the euphoric chorus.
This album project was recorded at Nashville’s famous Cowboy Arms Hotel And Recording Spa, and along with the band themselves, features icons like Tim O’Brien, Rob McCoury, Stewart Duncan, Leftover Salmon’s Vince Herman, Ronnie Bowman, Kyle Tuttle and more.
Distilling the Davisson Brothers Band sound down to its essential elements, something as pure and potent as mountain moonshine – and just as transparent – the brothers now say it is their definitive work.
“It was just real and raw,” Donnie Davisson explains.
“I’m in love with this record. I feel like we finally captured what the Davisson Brothers Band are trying to do,” he says.
