Carolina Coalmine never fails to rock the house every time they step on stage. Whether it’s the college crowd, hard workin’ rednecks, five people or 5,000, when Katie Williamson belts out that first note, the crowd goes wild! From small local venues to large outdoor amphitheaters opening for Vince Gill – this band plays an outstanding live show! This extremely talented North Carolina-based band delivers a range of “sounds from the south” scoping from folk-blues, southern rock, and today’s radio country hits. Carolina Coalmine engages each person in the crowd guaranteeing that whatever may have started them as a simple listener has now turned them into a full fledged fan! Carolina Coalmine was awarded runner up in two categories of the YES! Weekly Triad’s Best Awards for NC in 2014 – “Best New Original Band” & “Best Lead Vocalist” for Katie Williamson.
