In 2011, Scott Tackett began work on a solo project, and solicited four of his picking pals to play on the record, all from Eastern Kentucky, all his friends. That session revealed to each of them, that what was being produced by that unit, was something special, to the point, that they agreed to help Scott fill some pending dates, which they did. Then more dates came, then a recording deal offer from Mt. Fever Records came, then they were awarded the B.O.R.N. AWARD(Band on the rise Nationally) by NATIONAL BLUEGRASS.COM. With the writing on the wall, other musical interests were abandoned, and HAMMERTOWNE was born. Sometimes.....MUSIC JUST HAPPENS.
