Liberty County-based band Exit 76 was in good company at its recent gigs.
The band recently was asked to perform as an opening act for country-rap group Bama Boys at the Dirty South Off Road Park in Hortense, Georgia. The Bama Boys recently released their self-titled debut album and have videos on YouTube. The video for their song “Boys in the Mud” has been viewed more than 62,000 times.
“We were very excited to be asked to perform as an opening act for Bama Boys. We couldn’t be more happy about how far our band has come in such a short time,” Exit 76 bassist and vocalist Ashley Sands said.
Opening for the Lacs on April 4 at Dirty South was a big accomplishment for Exit 76. The Lacs, also from Georgia, have more than a half-million fans on Facebook, have been featured in a Wall Street Journal cover story, and their previous album, “190 Proof,” remained consistently on the Billboard country-albums chart for more than a year.
“Happy doesn’t even cover how amazed I am that Dirty South Off Road Park is going to have us back in just a few short weeks to open for the Lacs,” said Frankie Meadows, percussionist for Exit 76, in a news release prior to the group’s performance April 4.
Next up for Exit 76 is the Earth Day Celebration starting at 3 p.m. Wednesday at 201 Mary Lou Drive in Hinesville.
