Country, Americana, and swing from northeast Ohio
The Shootouts

Hailing from Akron, Ohio, The Shootouts are known for their energetic blend of honky-tonk, Americana, and traditional country. After releasing their acclaimed 2019 debut Quick Draw, the band charted Top 50 on Americana radio. In 2020, the band was nominated for “Best Honky-Tonk Group” at the Ameripolitan Music Awards, an honor they have been nominated for again at the upcoming 2023 awards ceremony.

They have shared the stage with luminaries such as Marty Stuart, Asleep at The Wheel, Steve Earle, Sheryl Crow, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Charley Crockett, Radney Foster, Chris Isaak, Raul Malo, Jim Lauderdale, Chuck Mead, Kim Richey, Dale Watson, and many more. The band also performed an official showcase at AmericanaFest 2021 in Nashville.

Produced by Grammy-nominee and BR549 founder Chuck Mead, the band’s 2021 release Bullseye has been praised by a range of outlets including Rolling Stone Country, American Songwriter, Wide Open Country, The Boot, and The Bluegrass Situation, amongst others.

The album spent over eighteen weeks on the Americana Music Association Top 30 album chart — including three weeks in the Top 10 – and has received regular airplay on Sirius XM Outlaw Country. The album also reached #1 on The Alt-Country Specialty Chart, #1 on The Roots Music Report Country Albums, #1 On The Roots Music Report Americana Albums, #42 On The Americana Music Association Most Played Albums Of 2021, and was named by the Country Mile UK as one of the Top Five Albums Of 2021.

On February 24, 2023, The Shootouts will release their third album, Stampede, produced by 10x Grammy-winner Ray Benson, lead singer of Asleep at The Wheel. Distributed world-wide through Soundly Music, Stampede is steeped in all things country music – an energetic fusion of Americana, honky tonk and Western swing. The album will feature special guest appearances from Ray Benson & Asleep at The Wheel, Marty Stuart, Buddy Miller, Jim Lauderdale, and Raul Malo, lead singer of The Mavericks.
