Dirty Guv’nahs Debut on Billboard Chart
The Dirty Guv'nahs' 'Hearts On Fire' debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, reaching No. 102 on Billboard's Top 200.
The 11-track album was released on iTunes and Amazon on March 11 on the band's own Summertown Records. The project was mixed by Grammy winner Vance Powell (Jack White, Kings of Leon) and mastered by Grammy winner Brad Blackwood (Maroon 5, Black Eyed Peas, Alison Krauss).
“We’ve been writing and recording songs for ‘Hearts on Fire’ for the last 12 months,” says front man James Trimble, “but if I’m honest, this album has been writing itself ever since the first time we jumped in the van eight years ago and decided to hit the road. Making music is a marathon, not a sprint, and we’ve just now found our voice.”
The Knoxville, Tenn.-based group is hitting the road for select tour dates across the southeast this spring, including stops at Volapalooza, Wakarusa and the Moon River Music Festival.
