Hayseed Dixie
Bluegrass


Hayseed Dixie is a novelty band that issued a tribute album to heavy metal legends AC/DC in 2001 (completely reworking the Australian band's classics as country/hillbilly rave-ups), titled A Hillbilly Tribute to AC/DC. Their sense of humor is also evident in their bio, which claims that the band hails from Deer Lick Holler, "deep in the heart of the Appalachia," where its members grew up playing the traditional hillybilly music of their forefathers. But as fate would have it, they just so happened to stumble across AC/DC's back catalogue of recordings when a stranger driving through the boy's hometown crashed his car and perished, but his records were saved by Hayseed Dixie! The bandmembers of AC/DC have taken quite a liking to Hayseed Dixie, as AC/DC bassist Cliff Williams invited the band to play a set at the band's tour wrap-up party at his East Coast mountain retreat in the summer of 2001.
