New Song, "Government Blues, by Feller and Hill

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Government BluesFeller and Hill are proud to bring you a brand new song, written by Tom T. and Dixie Hall called "Government Blues". The song is a light-hearted look at a depression-era problem that can just as easily translate into today's situations. Feller and Hill deliver in their vintage style.

This is the first single that will be featured from their upcoming sophomore album. The album will feature a few very special guests, as well as the songwriting, arrangements, and vocal perfection that gained them immediate attention from the bluegrass world, on their debut effort. Tom and Chris would also like to wish everyone a very blessed holiday season and hope to see you all in 2014!

Formed in the tradition of such legendary duos Flatt and Scruggs and the Osborne Brothers, Tom Feller and Chris Hill are also heavily influenced by classic country greats Buck Owens and Ray Price. Thus was born Feller and Hill and the Bluegrass Buckaroos. Feller's solid, expressive lead vocals blend seamlessly with Hill's razor-sharp tenor vocals, culminating in an exciting new duo, Feller and Hill.

Tom Feller and Chris Hill were born across the Ohio River from each other—Tom in southern Indiana and Chris in northern Kentucky. Both have performed with bands from bluegrass-rich areas of Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, and Virginia. Tom has been with Jerry Williamson & Redwing, The Larry Stephenson Band, Rhonda Vincent and the Rage, and with Nashville songwriter Kim Fox in the group 3 Fox Drive. Chris has performed with Gerald Evans and Paradise, The Wildwood Valley Boys, the James King Band, and The Karl Shiflett and Big Country Show.

“Bluegrass-bound” to get together someday—it happened when Tom was filling in on bass and running sound with his cousin, Tony Holt’s band, the Wildwood Valley Boys, during Chris Hill’s tenure with them. Tom immediately noticed Chris’s Don Rich-like tenor abilities, filing them in his best in the business category. Likewise, Chris admired Tom’s skills at bass and sound engineering.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
