The opening line to Fat Dixie’s debut single “Backroad”…“I’m just country, unlike the rest”…sums up this hot new band. With roots firmly in the south, Fat Dixie has taken their love for bands such as The Black Crowes, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Randy Rogers, Willy Nelson and Waylon Jennings along with some not so country bands such as STP, Train and Tom Petty to cultivate their own sound that is creating quite a stir throughout the region. Fat Dixie formed in May of 2006 when Jared Sutton, Shaun Cook, and Jarrod Baker (formerly of Oklahoma based band Bishops Alley) called T.J. Chesshire and Bob Miller (formerly of Texas based band Ragtown) and asked if they would be interested in hooking up to start a new project. Not long after, T.J. and Bob moved to Seminole, Oklahoma and Fat Dixie was born. Prior to Fat Dixie’s formation, the guys toured the region for 7 plus years in their respective bands playing over 1000 shows, releasing 3 full length albums, and cultivating a huge fan base. In the short time since Fat Dixie’s inception, the band has written over 20 original songs, released a 5 song demo, become highly requested on several radio stations, consistently ranked as one of the top 5 unsigned Southern Rock and Country artists in Oklahoma on MySpace, and performed shows throughout Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, and Texas. A few of the bands Fat Dixie has played with over the last several months are Jack Ingram, Stoney LaRue, Jason Boland, Reckless Kelly, Bleu Edmondson, Trent Wilman, and No Justice. Currently, the band is promoting their debut 15 track album entitled Spinning My Wheels (released July 2007), touring everywhere they can, and enjoying the simple pleasures of the road.
