Comprised of three incredibly talented singer/songwriters, The Nashvillains are catching people’s attention in Music City and beyond. And, while the band may not be a household name quite yet, we can guarantee you’re familiar with the work and accomplishments of Troy Johnson, Brett Boyett and Scott Lindsey. During Johnson’s 20+ years in Nashville, he’s written songs for other artists including Keith Urban, Trace Adkins and Montgomery Gentry. Boyett was the executive music producer and composer on the highly acclaimed feature “Forever My Girl,” and his music has been placed on various NBC, ABC and CBS television shows. And don’t forget the third member, Lindsey, who has had songs recorded by the likes of the Bellamy Brothers, Kevin Costner & Modern West and Blackstone Cherry. Together, the three musicians’ harmonies grab your attention and make you want to get to know them better. NRA Country’s Lisa Supernaugh took a moment to do just that: learn more about The Nashvillains by asking them each a few questions.
LS: Was there anyone who shared their love of the great outdoors with you growing up?
SL: My dad would take me fishing every chance he got at the old Peabody Coal Mines strip pits. I still love fishing to this day and sneak off to fish every chance I get.
LS: Do you have a favorite personal firearm?
BB: I love my Stag Arms AR-15, and also my Glock 19 Gen4, Glock 43X, Remington 700 and Smith & Wesson Shield 2.0.
LS: You’ve obviously met fans performing all over the country. When you think about the places you’ve been and the people you’ve met, what makes you proud to be an American?
TJ: Freedom, freedom, freedom … to paraphrase Ben Franklin, I just hope we can keep it.
Be sure to check out the Nashvillains website, NashvillainsBand.com, and all their social media sites to learn more about the band and hear music from their recently released album, “Tumbling Down.” The album is a country concept album that tells a very personal story about how one wrong decision can have a reverberating ripple effect throughout one’s life. Critically acclaimed, the songwriting and production on the album is as good as anything you’ll find in country music these days.
