The Overalls are an acoustic trio from Alabama. One can tell straight out that they're southern, yet their appeal is wide spread. Rich harmonies, strong melodies and words that make you sit up and listen, flow from this trio.
The Overalls were formed in 1997. Rick and Jilda Watson are songwriters from Empire, Alabama and Steve Norris, who also writes, is from Helena, Alabama. The three had so much fun pickin' and grinnin' at Steve's brother's beach house, performing together was just a natural progression.
No they don't wear overalls on stage; was just a name picked on a whim.
