Wasted Highway is a Nebraska-based roots outfit that merges folk, country, bluegrass, and rock-n-roll into a gritty, timeless blend. At their best, they combine the rabble-rousing alt-country of red dirt legends Cross Canadian Ragweed and the outlaw honky-tonk style of Merle Haggard with doses of folk-rock from the likes of Tom Petty and Neil Young. Oozing with uniqueness, the members trade off lead vocal duties as well as trading leads with guitar, fiddle, mandolin, banjo, and harmonica. Combined the members have over 6 decades of playing experience all over the world , and were nominated for Outstanding Country Artist of the Year by the Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards.
Forming in early 2018, Wasted Highway has enjoyed early success playing for sold out crowds and opening for national acts such as David Allan Coe, Cody Canada and the Departed, Read Southall Band, Josh Ward, and many more. Their highly anticipated self-titled EP was released in April 2019, to a warm reception that included radio airplay on several stations both locally and nationally. The band’s second effort is currently in the works, and is expected to be released in late 2020. The bands live shows are high energy, sing-along, dancing fun. Original tunes are combined with covers ranging from red dirt country to classic rock, with some outlaw country and bluegrass in the mix as well. Showing it’s versatility, the band can play 4-hour plus gigs and still leave the crowd wanting more! As one recent review put it “great music, good times, talent out their ass!”
