The Old 97's, pioneers of alternative country-rock, emerged in Dallas in 1993, forging a distinctive sound blending twangy Americana with raw rock energy. Fronted by lead vocalist and primary songwriter Rhett Miller, the band garnered acclaim for their witty lyrics and infectious melodies. Albums like "Too Far to Care" and "Wreck Your Life" propelled them to the forefront of the alt-country movement. Renowned for their spirited live performances and genre-defying approach, the Old 97's remain influential, seamlessly blending heartland roots with rock 'n' roll, and maintaining a dedicated fanbase while evolving their sound over a career spanning several decades.
