By Lightning! wins the first Road to Bonnaroo competition!

It was a pretty spectacular night with a lot of turnout for the 1st Road to Bonnaroo competition last night at Mercy Lounge.  Eight rapid fire sets with performers giving it their all to earn a coveted spot in this year’s Bonnaroo lineup.  We saw very inspired performances from all the contestants, but it was clear that either Colorfeels or By Lightning! were going to be heading down to the farm this summer.  I’m sure the vote must have been close, but By Lightning! are your winners!  It’s been quite a year for this new band of Nashville musicians, and their rise continues with this win.  As a thank you, they are giving you a stream of their new record Left Hand, Right Hand below.

We here at No Country want to congratulate By Lightning! and all the other contestants.  Don’t snooze on the next round which takes place on March 26th.  Of course, you don’t have to fret, I will remind you!

Have your say
