Charleston City Paper Feature
“I think we’re playing a style of music that isn’t necessarily new,” he says. “It’s more of the Texas-style, ’60s and ’70s country— Willie and Waylon and all that.. I think that’s why we’ve ventured over to the outlaw style or alt-country and gotten identified with those labels, because we’re definitely not like what’s on the radio.”

Country Perspective gives ‘Scars & Bars’ 8/10 rating
“The Piedmont Boys’ brand of outlaw country is loud and proud on Scars & Bars. The domineering theme of the entire album is without a doubt honky-tonk life and music, something they’re very good at singing about. If you’re yearning for a style of the outlaw days, this is an album I definitely recommend checking out. It’s the anti-thesis to country radio, something The Piedmont Boys I’m sure will wear with a badge of pride.”
