Tennessee Jed – “Soul Country Pimpgrass”

Tennessee born musician Jed Fisher is now known to the world as bluegrass sensation Tennessee Jed. He began playing guitar at 10 and winning vocal competitions by age 14. He went through many musical phases growing up in central North Carolina and played nearly every style of popular music from industrial metal to bluegrass, hippie rock to soul and R&B. After a stint backing Billboard-charting country sensation Jason Michael Carroll, Jed spent a couple of years honing his craft in Nashville while exploring the bluegrass roots of his Southern heritage. In February of 2018 Tennessee Jed released his newest album “Pimpgrass” and the video for his song “Soul Country Pimpgrass”

“Soul Country Pimpgrass” is an up-tempo tune that combines traditional style with modern production. Lyrically, Jed tells the story of visiting a local record store to see the current state of music. He observes people lost in the fashion and trendiness of genres, missing the essential soul that music should have. After he commiserates with the shop owner, Jed shares his music with the world and brings everyone to a better place, unifying the different groups to groove along with him. The song features lightning quick solos and beautifully blended vocal harmonies. Most importantly, it is full of the heart, soul, and respect for the rich tradition this music has.
