Confederate Railroad first rolled onto the national country music scene in the early 90s. They started out as the back up band for both David Allan Coe and Johnny Paycheck. Then they got their big break by signing with Atlantic Records. Overall, the group has sold five million albums and has 18 charted hits including “She Took It Like A Man”, “Jesus and Mama,” “Queen of Memphis,” and “She Never Cried.” Their hit, “Trashy Women,” was nominated for a Grammy and became their signature song. Their debut album, simply titled “Confederate Railroad,” which included six hits and brought in nearly three million sales, led to the group receiving the Best New Group Award in 1993 from the ACM.

Profits from the concert will be used to help GoBetsy move forward with community projects in Elizabethton, including the construction of a trout fishing ramp under Highway 400 bridge, and beautification and landscaping work at the Covered Bridge Park.
