Our Story

     The honest memoirs of country music's forefathers and all-out rock and roll attitude collide within the beautiful contradiction known as Tweed & Dixie. Meeting somewhere between Waylon and Whitesnake, their sound has been crafted from growing up in the working class, grease-driven Motor City Madhouse and running the backroads of Great Lakes country. The group's chemistry is comprised of the deeply rooted, country-rock soul of Barry Forster, gut-busting bass lines and soaring vocals of Rick Maida, and soulful, thunderous grooves of Cody McCoy. Since their debut during the summer of 2015, the fellas have had the opportunity to share the stage with The Cadillac Three, Josh Thompson, Larry Gatlin, Jason Michael Carroll, The Swon Brothers, Gunnar & the Grizzly Boys, Bucky Covington, Mickey Guyton, and Outshyne.

"One thing we can definitely take pride in is the ability to bridge the gap between country and rock fans. It's an interesting place to be because we all have strong country heritage, but, we like to head bang to it. We are a 50/50 split. Tweed & Dixie."
