BLUEGRASS & WHISKEY
"The Baltimore Brewing Company used to have a bluegrass happy hour every Friday night," Hough says. "Cris had a connection with the girl who put it on, and she told him to put together a bluegrass band. He called me up and we needed a name because the City Paper was about to go to print. We got 'Smooth Kentucky' off the back of a whiskey bottle and it stuck."
