The Tuten Brothers is an up-and-coming country band from Athens, GA that seems to have a fire and a passion in its sound that country music hasn't seen in years. Inspired by classic country and rock 'n' roll, Brothers Walker and Sam Tuten are the dynamic and energetic frontmen of the group, and their longtime friend Connor McAdams plays the drums.
Hailing from the city most well known as the home of chart-topping bands like R.E.M. and B-52s, The Tuten Brothers seem to be inspired by the legacy of their town. They've already made a big splash in the Athens and Atlanta music scenes, playing for packed houses at the iconic 40 Watt Club and Georgia Theatre after the release their debut single, 'Southern Sunrise', which had a 10-week stint on 94.9 The Bull.
After the success of Southern Sunrise, which they recorded in a spare bedroom of their cousins house in Athens, GA, the band took to the studio to record an album in Nashville, TN with Alex Gilson of Gold Cassette Productions. Their debut EP is now available on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, and most major platforms.
"These boys are bringing back classic country with a twang of rock 'n' roll, reminiscent of the timeless appeal of Hank Williams, Jr., and bringing it back in a big way. These boys are making a statement on the future of country, and I’ll be damned if I’m not excited for it." - The Odyssey
