Hill Country Live presents music in our clubs downstairs in New York City & Washington, D.C. Since our beginnings, we have transformed our music program, from a fun dinner enhancement to a vital music experience. We book bands that live comfortably under the Americana banner with a nod to our spiritual home in Austin, and so have been graced by the likes of Billy Joe Shaver, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Bob Schneider, Hayes Carll, Puss 'n Boots (feat: Norah Jones), The Bottle Rockets, Marah, Chris Knight, Jim White, Big Sandy and Kelly Willis + Bruce Robison, to name a few. But we are also quite happy to present everything from the legendary underground rockabilly revivalist, Robert Gordon to a Bee Gees Metal Tribute (what's more American than that?) to the Motor City Garage Soul of the Detroit Cobras. 

Hill Country Live presents over 500 shows a year between our NYC and Washington, D.C. locations. To be considered please send us links to your website, live performance video, show/attendance history and a brief description. While we review every artist, we can’t always respond to everyone. Thanks for sharing your music! Submit your music inquiry to

Music is having a moment. Listeners are crying out for something truesome - meaty songs that’ll give us some comfort, even as they cut closer to the bone. Everyone is finally ready for the gritty, thundering country Jason Boland and the Stragglers have sharpened over almost 20+ years’ worthy of selling out roomy venues and commanding stages across the nation. For 2020, the band is celebrating the 20th Anniversary of their debut album Pearl Snaps with a nationwide tour where the band will play the record front to back along with favorites from their extensive catalog. The legendary record was recorded with famed producer Lloyd Maines and behind the success of songs like “Pearl Snaps” “Somewhere Down in Texas” “Proud Souls” and others it quickly became a beloved classic and still continues to be named as a major influence for many of the top artists coming out of the Texas/Oklahoma country music scene.
