CANTON — Bush Hawg, a Nashville-based country band, will perform at the Cherokee Arts Center on Saturday as part of the Canton Festival of Arts.

In March, Rolling Stone Magazine named Bush Hawg the newcomer band to watch and it has a new single set for release this summer. The band recently attended the American Country Music awards and in March was on stage at the Country Music Hall of Fame for the Key New Artist Launch show.

Before signing with RCA Records Nashville, the band had a few lines on its website describing their music as “a blend of backwoods, blue collar, bar fights and Bibles, wrapped in an American flag and washed down with whiskey. You’ll feel as if you’ve just been pistol whipped, then given a keg of beer to help ease the pain.”

The six-man band is working on their debut album with CMA award-winning producer Michael Knox, who also produced Jason Aldean’s 2011 My Kinda Party album. Bush Hawg announced on its website Monday that those who attend the show will have the chance to win a custom Bush Hawg guitar.

Advance tickets can be purchased at The Painted Pig Tavern or online at /3754265 for $20 and tickets at the door cost $35. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. Local act Wade Sapp will open the show.
