King Country was assembled in 2000 by lead singer/songwriter Frank Sullivan. Sullivan's North Carolina upbringing found him fronting or playing lead guitar for several funk and new wave bands who played the club and college circuit around his native Jacksonville. In 2002, the seven members of King Country recorded Five Star Dive Bar, a 12-song traditional country collection. The album's self-titled cut became the first single in early 2003. ~ Rick Cohoon, Rovi
