Hard Rockin' Boogie
Tennessee Iron is a hard rocking, original band hailing from Tazewell Tennessee, with a sound that is often referred to as “Original High-Test Tennessee Boogie”. The band consists of drummer Carlene Harrell, bassist “Chief” Bell, and singer / guitarist / songwriter Butch Harrell.
Bringing three lifetimes of musical experience together, the Tennessee Iron band is the culmination of Butch’s lifelong musical dream. The band was formed in 2007, originally crafting and honing the songs under the name Main Drive Gear.
Riding and rocking is more than a hobby or a profession for them, it is a way of life. This is an expression of their beliefs that is very evident in the power and message of the music. The stories within the music, written by songwriter Butch Harrell, describe a gutsy, gritty reality of life that everyone can relate to. A classic rock feel permeates the stage as the band performs, bringing a sense of quality that is rare in today’s music. Tennessee Iron also has an entire catalog of classic cover tunes that pay tribute to the original artists with the same veracity that they attack their original music.
