ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Preachers of Hell County was born deep in the Southern Plains Bible Belt in Plainview, Texas, the county seat of Hale County Texas. Founder Rev. C.V. Wood being born and raised in Plainview, small town soon found out what it was like being raised in a Southern Baptist stronghold where basically anything that wasn't square dancing was sinful in terms of music entertainment. So much that the local cable company removed MTV from the channel selection after Madonna released "Like a Virgin". Throughout the little city public arenas all had prohibitions on music performances that weren't square dancing. Hale County was a "dry" county (no alcohol sold for consumption legally) so growing up as "heathens" in this town meant finding safe places to hide from the authorities to have keg parties and listen to, dance to, whatever one wanted to. After graduation, C.V. moved to Austin, Texas and worked in several bands as guitarist, singer and songwriter, honing the skills that would eventually lead to the formation of the Preachers of Hell County in late 2016.

The first member to make his mark in the band was bassist John Lewis from New Jersey, who found C.V.'s ad on Craigslist. According to John, "I found this guy who had a ton of great music recorded and well produced, great songs, great hooks and immediately I had to play music with this guy". Interestingly John was a drummer and after a few bassists failing to get it done, C.V. and John both agreed that it might be a better option for John to move to bass because he had some experience and would likely pick it up quickly.

Shortly after, C.V. contacted his former drummer Mark Middleton from his previous project from 2002-2007 the freakOphonics and asked him to come out and give it a try. Immediately, the band when straight into the studio only having six tracks to run with. After digging through C.V.'s older discography, Rain and Welcome were added to the list bringing the album up to eight tracks. C.V. never satisfied and always looking at the bigger picture said, "Preachers of Hell County must deliver 13 tracks" and after six months of recording and mastering, the debut is born.

Of course, C.V. looking to stir the controversy of the band bought the internet domain name "www.preachers666.com" and immediately fellow hometown residents reflected "y'all must be devil worshippers"....and the saga continues.

C.V. having performed over 600 shows once in Austin, Texas has never returned to perform in his hometown but as of June 17, 2017 the band is hosting it's C.D. Release Party in Plainview, Texas (Hell County) and the world awaits.

Hear the struggle, keep up with this band, it's going to be a great band.
