Hard Rockin' Boogie
Tennessee Iron is a hard rocking, original music, boogie band from Tazewell, Tennessee. Originally known as Main Drive Gear, the band consists of drummer Carlene Harrell, bassist Tim “Chief” Bell, and singer/guitarist/ songwriter Butch Harrell.
Bringing three lifetimes of musical experience together, the three musicians also fill their time with operating a motorcycle repair and sales shop named Tennessee Iron. All three are accomplished riders, and have ridden their bikes to many locations throughout the states, including Sturgis and Daytona.
Ridin' and rockin' is more than a hobby or a profession for them, it is a way of life. This is an expression of their beliefs that is very evident in the power and message of the music. The stories within the music, written by songwriter Butch Harrell, describe a gutsy, gritty reality of life that everyone can relate to. A classic rock feel permeates the stage as the band performs, bringing a sense of quality that is rare in today’s music. Experience this excitement for yourself! Come to our next show!
