High Energy Southern Rock, Blues, and Country Music
The Fairview Union is a 5 piece country rock band. Their popular high energy live shows feature a mix of southern rock, blues, and today's country music along with their own up beat original songs. They released their first CD "Better Day Bound" in Jan of 2011 and in April appeared on Knox IVI's internet TV show, 11 O'Clock Rock, where they performed several tunes from the album. In May of 2011 they opened for award winning country music star Tracy Lawrence at The Cotton Eyed Joe. Two months later TFU beat out 14 other regional acts when they won Wild Wing Cafe's battle of the bands. That title afforded them the opportunity to play ShineFest at Fontana Village in N.C. along side ever popular recording artists Blackberry Smoke, The Black Lillies, and Matt Stillwell. Shortly after they were asked to play Bristol's Rhythm and Root's Festival where thousands flock every year to hear the best in country music. The Fairview Union's highly anticipated sophomore CD "Up for Gettin Down" is due out Jan 28th of 2012.
The band is based out of the small East Tennesse town of Coalfield and include members Chad Wilson, Kelli Wilson, Mike Barnes, Neal Foster, and Chris Potocik
