Les Claypool’s Duo De Twang

- How you know them: Claypool is the bass player in Primus; Kehoe plays guitar with M.I.R.V.
- How they formed: friends since high school, the musicians performed as a duo at San Francisco’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival and decided to keep it up
- Four Foot Shack: their debut album, which contains a fusion of jazz, country, and “hillbilly music from the ’30s and ’40s,” according to their interview with Exclaim.ca
- Where you first heard those smooth country vocals: on the second season of American Idol
- In between singing, he was: serving in the US Marine Corps
- His connection to Rascal Flatts: after hearing Gracin’s cover of their song “I’m Movin’ On,” the band connected him to their producer, who helped Gracin secure a record deal
- Songs you may hear from his three studio albums: “Stay with Me (Brass Bed),” “Nothin’ to Lose,” “We Weren’t Crazy,” “Drink It Gone”
- Her musical beginnings: singing with her mom and aunts, The Carter Sisters
- Her breakout album that put her firmly on the country-music map: 1990’s I Fell in Love, which featured a classic country sound as opposed to her previous rock- and pop-tinged sound
- What the title track did: earned a Grammy nomination
- Her musically inclined parents: mom June Carter Cash, dad Carl Smith, and stepfather Johnny Cash
