FFN: Little Johnny Trailer Trash
July 30, 2021, 7 p.m.
Little Johnny Trailer Trash hails from the Piedmont of North Carolina and infuses traditional and contemporary music with a touch of bluegrass, rock and Americana. “Americana Music” best classifies this band with simple, true and catchy tunes that make fans want to tap their feet and sing along. Soaring harmonies and smooth melodies make this band one to watch.
L.J.T.T. recently was featured as a top 32 band on CMT’s show called “CMT’s Music City Madness,” which features the original song, “They Sang Country.” The band currently is touring the Carolinas and recording its upcoming CD between shows.
Little Johnny Trailer Trash members include Johnny Scott Connell (lead vocals), Jay DeVine (guitars/vocals/mandolin/harmonica), Jamey Taylor (bass guitar ) and Joe Husko (drums/vocals). Together, the band performs more than 175 shows a year. The group’s sound can be described as taking Merle Haggard mixed with some Bon Jovi with a little Lynyrd Skynyrd added in and the result is Little Johnny Trailer Trash.
With the studio expertise of Boo English at Knothole Studios in North Carolina, the L.J.T.T. boys have recorded "Willows" for their new single from the upcoming studio project entitled "The Knothole Sessions," which includes some of the band’s finest work to date.
