"The first time I heard the Fritts Family it was on a soggy night in April 1997, at the Boxcar Pinion Bluegrass Festival in Chattanooga, TN. As headliners that evening, the band took the stage just as a driving rain was intensifying,,threatening to breach the safe haven of the picnic shelter under which we were sitting. As soon as the band began to play, however, all concerns about the weather quickly faded. The evening's performance combined the best traditions of Tennessee family bands, like the Carters, with the Fritts Family's distinctive sound."
