It's been a minute since we've posted any news…We hope you all had a happy New Year! We've been doing some traveling over the holidays and are glad to be back in East TN to get back to some music!  We've got some great gigs coming up including The Appalachian State Fiddler's Convention in Boone, February 8th, as well as the great Asheville festival, Bluegrass First Class, on February 14th.  We really want to see some folks out for these bills!! Our friends Sons of Bluegrass will also be playing both shows, and our good friends the Barefoot Movement will be at Bluegrass First Class. Oh yeah and Rhonda Vincent, Third Time Out, Doyle Lawson, Seldom Scene and Lou Reid, just to name a few!!  Its a big one alright!  Go visit the site to see what's in store!

Crazy Water News Update 9/17/13 

Howdy friends! We've been too busy to check in and let y'all know what we've been up to for the last couple months. We had a tremendous time out in New Mexico last weekend at the Red River Bluegrass festival. Met so great people and are looking forward to returning next year. Till then we've got a whole bunch stuff to add to the calendar including a performance at WPAQ, Tn Fall Homecoming, and Bluegrass First Class! A lot of exciting shows in our near future to say the least. There's been a lot of stuff  brewing as far as travel is concerned as well and it seems like we'll be making our way all over the map this coming spring! We've got some local shows mixed in there as well so come out and say hey, we'd love to see you at a show!!

CWC Summer Update - July 26th, 2013 

We've had such a productive and busy summer thus far travelling all over the map. We're thrilled about our upcoming schedule as we get into the dog days of summer.  We've got a lot in store for the next few months including an old-time festival in Alabama, TN Fall Homecoming, and a trip out west where we'll be playing at the Red River Bluegrass Festival in Red River New Mexico! We've got a number of new original tunes that we've been working on as well.  If you haven't had a chance to see us make sure to watch our calendar, chances are we'll be in your neck of the woods soon!

Home sweet home!! June 7th, 2013 

After having a great show in Columbus we drove through the night to reach our destination of Dollywood to wrap our midwestern tour. Pulling into our beautiful state of Tennessee we found it much greener than when we left it. The mountain laurel is in full bloom and the air is thick with summer. We've had such a great tour through the midwest and met so many new friends along the way. What a trip! Thanks to all of you who helped us along the way, whether it being with a place to stay or some words of support, we are so grateful for the encouragement!! Now that we're home we're gonna lay back and pick on some tunes for a few days and recharge. We've got a lot in the works for the next couple months folks so check back with us shortly! In few days we'll be ready to do it all over again!!


It's gettin' closer! James will be arriving back from his Montana fishing adventures any minute now. We've got our final weekend stint at the Tweetsie Railroad, then we hit the road.  We've got a number of new gigs that have been added to the tour, giving us an almost two week string of gigs through the Midwest and we just found out that a film about one of our heroes, Charlie Louvin, is making its' Chicago premiere at the Hideout the night we'll be playing. Not to be missed friends!! On another note, we've got some more tour plans coming together for midsummer.  We're gonna be doing a heck of a lot of driving.  Stay tuned!

We're packin' up and shipping' out. 4/29/13 

 It's time to hit the road folks! We are thrilled for our upcoming tour through the Midwest where we'll be making stops through Louisville Ky, Indianapolis, Chicago, and Columbus, playing with such great bands as The Lawrence Peters Outfit, and our buddies the Henhouse Prowlers.  This will be the first time the Crystals head out on the road as a duet.  We got our new duds including suits and hats to ensure we'll be leaving town feelin' propper.  We are proud to announce our friend and award winning musician, Nokosee Fields, will be making the voyage with us as well. He'll be playing both the upright and the fiddle at our gigs along the way. Also keep an eye out for The Crazy Water Crystal EP which will be out before we know it. We hope to see you on the road!
