JP Harris and Chance McCoy
JP Harris and Chance McCoy met under circumstances slightly different than many of Nashville’s duos: a week-long, muddy, moonshine-fueled fiddler’s convention, set high in the West Virginia mountains many summers ago.
Over the last seven-some-odd years they continued to meet at random, drinking corn liquor and losing time in the drone of the old fiddle-and-banjo tunes of the 19th century they both knew well. In time, JP formed his notorious electric honkytonk band JP Harris and The Tough Choices, while Chance went on to join the neo-traditional platinum-selling band known as Old Crow Medicine Show.
With their careers landing them both in Nashville, it was time at last for the pair to find an outlet for the old time music that had initially brought them together; however this time it is with a road-wizened ear, an occasional new take on an old sound, and a few more miles on their already-calloused fingers.
