When/Where: Sunday, June 8th, Bud Light Stage
Who: The most minimalist of country duos, Nick Jamerson plays acoustic guitar and sings, while Kris Bentley slaps away on a cajon.
Why You Can't Miss Them: Country's take on the White Stripes are influenced not by the blues and garage rock that fueled Jack White's two-person band, but by the Appalachian folk and country of Sundy Best's old Kentucky home. With songs like current single "Until I Met You" and the yearning "Home," these boys know their way around a singalong and have developed a passionate following, especially in college towns. With only that guitar and drum box, Jamerson and Bentley will have the most spare setup of any act at CMA Fest, but just wait until you hear what they can do with it.
