Overmountain Men keeping it real.

There are certain bands that could only exist at this moment in time, and Overmountain Men is one of them. 

  
  Led by Charlotte-based songwriter David Childers and Avett Brothers bassist Bob Crawford the group
glides effortlessly between country and indie rock, old-school folk, with just a touch of vaudeville. All of these styles crop up on Overmountain Men’s sophomore effort: The Next Best Thing just released last month on Ramseur Records. 
 
You can hear Overmountain Men live in concert this Saturday night, February 16th at The Garage in Winston-Salem.
 
Childers spoke with David Ford by phone from his home in Charlotte.
