As their name alludes, Hellbound Glory is well on their way to proving they are a force to be reckoned with in the country music. Fusing superior song writing and hard living characters with a hard-edged country honky tonk sound. The group is known for its instrumental dexterity, while vivacious frontman Leroy and his compadres are also notorious for their down-home, good-old-boy attitude. This type of attitude and song writing chops, to back it up, have won over fans far and wide. Whether they are playing in front of two hundred or two thousand, Hellbound Glory delivers on their performance and leaves audiences begging for more as they envelop the crowd with Leroy's powerful story telling and showmanship.
Throughout the mid 2000’s, Hellbound Glory began defining their indie Americana sound, before that was even a genre. They were moderately successful, but they never had a breakthrough hit on the country
charts. But the new album “Damaged Goods” is set to change all that. Hellbound Glory knew there was an audience for Real Country and they stuck to their guns writing and recording songs full of grit, character and about problems facing rural America.
A constant crowd pleaser, the guys are road dogs are gonna keep it that way for a long time to come as getting comfortable just doesn't fit into their mindset. They have over the last 4 years performed across the country in large music venues and local honky-tonks alike. They’ve shared the stage with musical legends like David Allan Coe, Reverend Horton Heat, Drive-By-Truckers, The Blasters, Hank III, Nashville
Pussy, Junior Brown, Dale Watson, Wayne Hancock, Jesse Dayton, Eddie Spaghetti (of the Supersuckers), Lee Rocker (Stray Cats), Lemmy Kilmeister (Motorhead) and many others.

“Guitars and drums for muscle, banjos rolling through like hellfire, steel licks showing up at all the right times, Virgil’s pliable whiskey-and-gravel croon always exactly where it needs to be. It’s a legitimately fun and rewarding listen.” – C. M. Wilcox, Country California
