Wild Blue Yonder

Since the band’s inception in 2001, Wild Blue Yonder has broken new ground in the acoustic roots music realm with a roadkill anthem, two top-selling CD releases and airplay on more than 60 stations in the U.S. and abroad, including WDVX and WIVK in Knoxville. They have performed for enthusiastic crowds in North Carolina, Kentucky, Georgia, Mississippi and Virginia, as well as East Tennessee. The group was also among select regional artists featured on a compilation CD celebrating the Mast General Store’s 125th anniversary in 2010 with their self-penned tale of lasting love, “Love So True.” Opening for Tommy Emmanuel at Knoxville’s “Autumn on the Square,” The Museum of Appalachia’s Tennessee Fall Homecoming, Kingsport’s “Celebrate our Appalachian Heritage” show, and numerous sold-out performances at the Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center are among Wild Blue Yonder’s highlights.
