Front man Wyatt joined The Blue Pickups in the Spring of 2015. The band has now been reworking dozens of originals as well as adding familiar cover songs in the Country & Rock music genre’s. Wyatt is from Richlands, VA. A small coal-mining town buried in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. He grew up listening to his grandfather play several instruments in various bluegrass bands on Friday and Saturday and his mother leading music on the piano at a small country church, which is he he began singing.
The band premiered their act in December 2015 at iHeart Media event by opening for the popular Nashville based Country Band Parmalee. The band has since recorded in Nashville. Contributors to the recording were drummer Grammy award winner-Ben Phillips, Grammy Producer-Dave Wyatt, Jimmy Rogers, Donny Rogers, Mike Danielsen, Tim Rosenau, and Kelly Wyatt. The Columbia, SC based band is now booking events and festivals and anticipates an album release in March of 2017. The band recently played as the opening act for One SC Fund flood relief benefit concert with 2012 American Idol winner Candice Glover and South Carolina’s own Darius Rucker. The event raised over $600,000 dollars and will be used to fund victims of the flood in 2015. Three of the originals were also included in an indie film titled “Curtain Call-Face the Music”.
Wyatt has also performed on stage in Nashville at The Stage on Broadway, and their song “Redneck Whiskey” has been covered at Tootsie’s. The song has also received radio time in England. Wyatt received a skip the line pass in 2014 for America’s Got Talent in Atlanta. Unfortunately it was scheduled the same day his daughter was starting college. His priorities are God, family, and music.
