“After listening to their album 20 times, I hear Keith Whitley, George Strait, Hip Hop, elements of rap, I hear Merle, I hear badass Country... I hear 3 and Twenty. I hear different influences. I said man, this is a badass album. It's Country, but it's a lot more than Country. They are country boys cranking out a fresh new sound... it's down home badass music. ”
— Stone Cold Steve Austin
“If you take the roots of country music, mixed with the soul of southern RnB, and top it off with a hip hop swagger, you've just cooked up a fresh serving of 3 and Twenty music. Butch and Adrian possess an unparalleled work ethic. They have far surpassed what even the above average indie act can typically do on their own. The 3 and Twenty brand is ready for the next level. When I was first introduced to 3 and Twenty, I loved their unique, genre bending sound. Their essence is rooted in down home country music, but fused with a tasteful influence of a range of genres. When we met, I was instantly inspired by their authentic passion for their art. There's no smoke and mirrors with these guys. They are true artists in every form. The final piece was seeing them live. After my first 3 and Twenty show experience, I was sold. Their energy on stage and love for their fans off stage was incredible to witness. Having the opportunity to join these guys on their journey is a privilage, and I'm confident they will find their well-deserved place in the mainstream country market for the long haul.”

Founded by longtime bandmates and business partners, Adrian Lee and Butch Gibson, in January 2010 in a small home studio on a backwoods country road (Three and Twenty Road) in Easley, South Carolina. Lee and Gibson were hell-bent on writing real, heartfelt, music that embodies their life experiences while striving to create a sound that is new and fresh, yet familiar, but also different enough that you really can't compare them to anybody, but try to compare them to everybody.
