The Nashville-based group spent more than two years on the road supporting their 2013 self-titled album alongside everybody from Bob Dylan to Gary Clark Jr. The record hit #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart, and they received invites to appear on Jimmy Kimmel, Conan O Brien, Seth Meyers, Craig Ferguson, ABC’s Nashville, and more. The band has received unanimous critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, New York Times, Huffington Post, USA Today, and countless others.

The Freshwater Land Trust’s mission is conserving, connecting, and caring for lands and waters in Central Alabama. Through Land Aid, they raise money for their land conservation and trail development projects while connecting with new supporters from around Alabama.
“Over the past nine years, thousands of individuals have attended Land Aid. Each attendee has played a direct role in helping us conserve over 11,000 acres of land in Alabama,” said Vaughan. “Land Aid is a fun way to support the Land Trust and to be an active part of the next generation of conservationists.”
The Freshwater Land Trust manages land across eight counties, promoting clean water and healthy ecosystems. They developed the Red Rock Trail System, a network of trails, parks, bike lanes, and sidewalks throughout Jefferson County. They have also preserved well-loved green spaces throughout Central Alabama, including Red Mountain Park, Seven Springs, Turkey Creek Nature Preserve, and the Rotary Trail in downtown Birmingham.
Land Aid is hosted by the Freshwater Land Trust junior board, a diverse group of young professionals committed to promoting the organization’s mission throughout Central Alabama.
