After years of playing in local rock n roll, country, blues, and even folk bands, I decided to record and produce my own album, playing all the instruments and vocals myself. The 2010 “UnIncorporated” album was an underground country music success. SavingCountryMusic.com gave the album a great review (https://www.savingcountrymusic.com/album-review-ronnie-hymes-unincorporated/) and included it in the end of the year “Essential Albums for 2010” list (https://www.savingcountrymusic.com/essential-albums-for-2010/) This landed me a spot in the 2011 Muddy Roots Music Festival in Cookeville, TN, followed by a six week tour with Lucky Tubb and the Modern Day Troubadours, nephew of country star Ernest Tubb. With the addition of my backing band, Carolina Freight, I released a second album in 2012, titled “Just a Workin Man”. More East Coast and regional shows in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Tennessee soon followed. I started playing locally again as a solo artist in 2019, and am looking forward to recording a new album in 2021.
