“Band” is a loosely interpreted word. I mean, a bunch of gangly teens in their garage is a band. So is U2. So is that community marching troop stomping down the street in the parade waving their 76 trombones.

Ten out of Tenn isn’t so much a band as a collective. But trust me, this is one of the most interesting and fresh concepts since the Volunteer State began. Singers and songwriters, based in Nashville got together in 2005 when founders Trent and Kristen Dabbs brought ten fellow singer/songwriters together. Get it? Ten out of Tenn. They share the stage, and share the spotlight, playing each others songs.

Together they’ve released three albums, and their 2008 tour has even been the subject of a celebrated NPR documentary. Check out some of their music, or tour dates to see if they’re coming somewhere in the South nearby you! You’re welcome.
