In January, Kentucky duo Sundy Best made their maiden voyage to Canada, opening for Dallas Smith on a tour across the country. While the temperatures may have been frigid, the reception by audiences couldn't have been more warm. Percussionist Kris Bentley, who with singer-guitarist Nick Jamerson make up the band, says the singalong tracks on their new album Salvation City helped win over the crowds. As did their thick Bluegrass State accents. "We could have just got onstage and talked for 30 minutes and I think they would have enjoyed it," quips Bentley. "I was afraid we were going to get kidnapped and put in a Canadian zoo to just stand there and talk to people as they walked by."

On Saturday, Rolling Stone Country presents a performance by Sundy Best at storied Nashville club Exit/In. The show is already sold-out, but in this exclusive tour gallery, Bentley and Jamerson offer a glimpse of their journey across the Great White North. All photos are by Richard Arp-Barnett.
