Big Smith / The DeWayn Brothers


Get over the Deliverance bib overalls and the Ozark ax-killer faces. The five guys—and more recently one girl—from this bluegrass combo Big Smith have long cultivated the Ozark hillbilly look, and further it with a tear-ass musical style that puts them in the company of groups like The Gourds and Avett Brothers. The Springfield, Missouri, bunch usually looks like they've just arrived from a turkey shoot or pig roast, but Big Smith plays high-energy, bluegrass-influenced roots music with anybody on the farm. A recently released documentary titled "Homemade Hillbilly Jam" profiles the band's members and the music of their extended family.
