The United States Navy Band Country Current is the Navy's premier country-bluegrass ensemble. The group is nationally renowned for its versatility and "eye-popping" musicianship, performing a blend of modern country music and cutting-edge bluegrass. Formed in 1973, the band has performed at the Grand Ole Opry and for five Presidents. A staple of the bluegrass scene, Country Current has shared the stage with music luminaries Rhonda Vincent, Dailey and Vincent, Mountain Heart, Little Roy Lewis, Third Time Out, The Lonesome River Band, Josh Williams, The Seldom Scene, and many others. Country Current routinely performs at bluegrass festivals and in 2011, became the first military band to perform at the South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas.
