“Ellis Bullard is the epitome of a True-Blue Honky Tonk experience, shaped by years of hard living and touring across America. Hailing from the vibrant music scene of Austin, Texas, Ellis Bullard and his band of seasoned Austin A-listers have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in Country and Americana, including Randy Rogers, Reckless Kelly, and Cody Johnson, Whiskey Myers, Paul Cauthen, Neal McCoy and many more. Their debut record, "Piss-Hot Freightlining Country Music," caught the attention of none other than Joe Rogan, who couldn't help but praise Bullard's fiery performance at the legendary White Horse.
Ellis Bullard's musical roots run deep, with a family history steeped in music. His mother was a performer in the iconic Muscle Shoals studios of the 60s and 70s, and his great-grandfather was a guitarist associated with Chet Atkins. Bullard's journey in music has been a decade-long adventure, but it was when he formed his own band with Austin's finest musicians that everything started to click. They quickly became a hot ticket in town, packing clubs night after night.
