Refusing to be restricted by what typical country music showcases, Canada’s top independent country rock act, Dry County’s popularity has exploded. Their music heard by millions, when their cult single "Waitin On Hank" became the official entrance song for UFC super heavy weight fighter "Texas Crazy Horse" Heath Herring in 2008.
They have soiled the pages of country music publications, newspapers, and Internet blogs and sell out venues across the province of Ontario. Originally formed in 1998 after shared decades on the bar and festival circuit, Dry County established itself as a high energy act infusing new country with southern rock. Their 2002 self-titled debut CD landed 5 songs on over 50 radio stations nationwide and have been included in live to air interviews as feature artists.
Their controversial 2005 release, "Waitin’ On Hank", received huge attention from all over the world and landed 4 singles on major market radio giving Dry County massive exposure and a fan base unmatched for a band that is proud to be 100% self-contained.
Backed by their legions of fans (known now as ’The Redneck Mafia’), and landing multiple sponsorships (including Taye Drums, Yamaha Keyboards and Budweiser to name a few), Dry County released the long awaited "Cowboy Up" album in April 2010 selling thousands of copies in just the first 2 weeks and thousands more via iTunes downloads landing them a "People’s Choice Award" for Group of the Year at the Hamilton Music Awards in November 2010.
2011 continued to bring Dry County major exposure by landing supporting roles for country music mega stars: Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean, Trace Adkins, Montgomery Gentry, Lonestar, Martina Mcbride, Blake Shelton and The Kentucky Headhunters.
2013 is expected to be Dry County’s biggest year yet as they are continually in the ITUNES top 200. Along side the announcement of their 4th studio release, it looks as if there is NO END IN SIGHT, for the baddest band in country music.
