Local Band Bettin' On The Mule Calls Fairmount Home

Dec 01, 2021 -- 4:36pm

 

 

There are lots of local musicians in our listening area. One or those is Bettin" On the Mule, a three piece power trio that hails from Fairmount. 

Bettin" On The Mule is made up of Jacob Wilson,lead vocals, bass guitar; Brandon Wilson, lead guitar, rhythm guitar, vocals;  Rick Norris, drums, vocals.

They play a fun mix of Southern Rock, Classic Rock, Country and Originals. Their unique sound personifies the phrase "Hometown Rock". This phrase perfectly describes the style and feel of the band's music and show. They love performing and their music comes from the soul. An exciting stage show where everyone is having fun, great musicianship and original songs that have a true meaning to them. That is what you can expect from Bettin' On The Mule.

Bettin' On The Mule has opened  for The Lacs, The Georgia Thunderbolts, Jeff Rodgers Band and more. The band has played many awesome venues all over the southeast including, The Cave Spring Motorcycle Rally and Musicfest, Sixes Tavern, Mullen's Pub Seneca, SC, and The Cleburne County Fair (Alabama) just to name a few.

 

The group's debut CD is still available on most digital platforms. And a new CD, Tag Applied For, is coming soon!
