Old 97’s

Initially a popular Dallas bar band, Old 97’s toured the country after releasing their first album, 1994’s Hitchhike to Rhome and 1995’s split EP release Stoned / Garage Sale with fellow Dallas band Funland on Idol Records. In Chicago, they caught the attention of Bloodshot Records and were signed to record their next album. 1995’s Wreck Your Life brought them to the attention of Elektra Records, who hoped that alt-country could be a new post-grunge trend. Lead singer Rhett Miller, born in Austin, later lived in New York City and Los Angeles. Many of the band’s songs include local Texas references, with references to New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago appearing as well.
