Our history

From acoustic sets off the beaten path to amped up shows in some of the most famous venues of country music lore, Whistlin' Dixie has evolved into the act you see today.  What started in 2013 is constantly growing and improving.  The chemistry between the group is what's special.

Our sound

Attitude.  Attack.  Be it a slow ballad or a rocker or anything in between, our approach to every song is hard driving.  

We strive to get audiences into the music, actively participating in the show.  Audience feedback is like fanning the flames at a Whistlin' Dixie show.

Darrell Davis

Frontman, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitarist, Comic Relief

Founding member and Whistlin' Dixie front man. Darrell has played guitar, bass and drums for the group at one point or another.  If we added a kazoo, Darrell would likely be on the short list.  Does a mean Swedish chef impersonation.

A couple of our heroes on the wall.....

Entertaining the troops

Belting out tunes for the 19th Airlift Wing at Little Rock Air Force Base

Beezer Wagler

Lead Guitar, Vocalist

With the band since 2013, Beezer sings, plays electric and acoustic guitar and washes windows on the band trailer (there are no windows on the band trailer but don't tell him......)  Professional electrical engineer in his down time.  Makes amazon jungle sounds when cornered.

Wesley Davis

Rhythm Guitar, Vocalist

Wesley is a great singer songwriter and an accomplished rhythm guitarist.  He's been a instrumental part of Whistlin' Dixie since 2013.  His motto is "never, EVER, race through camp."

Kingston Stage Time

Not unlike the Turnpike Troubadours, Wes is doing his thing on a long HOT summer day in Kingston AR.  See what we did there?

Vocal Track

Wes laying down vocals on his WD tune "Home Grown" in the studio.  This guy can write!!

Doobie Bowie

Drums, Vocals, Designated Driver

A phenomenal drummer, singer and songwriter, Doobie also plays guitar and bass.  Writer of "Down on the Farm", this man is scary good.  Likes to hang out in hardware stores.  Collects drums and white cheddar popcorn bags.

Makin' noise at Music on the Mulberry

Daryl Vaughn

Bass Guitar

Daryl comes from a long line of talented musicians.  As the newest member of Whistlin' Dixie, Daryl plays bass and sings incredible harmony.

Incredible versatility

Daryl is best known for his command over country music, but Daryl is also an accomplished bluegrass picker as well as rock and roll musician.

In the zone

As with any musician worth their salt, Daryl has no control over facial expressions when he's on point........ok, that's a lie......this photo is an example of bad timing used against you by the guys in the band....  ;-)
