What do you do when your entire life as a musician is suddenly put on hold? For The Band of Heathens, the answer to the big existential question of 2020 was simple: put on a show. For fifty-two weeks, every Tuesday night, the five-piece group came together via Zoom from their respective homes – in California, Texas, Tennessee and North Carolina - to host the Good Time Supper Club, a ninety-minute variety program. The segment of the show, called Remote Transmissions, became a much-anticipated fan favorite each week.

Critically-acclaimed rock ’n' roll group The Band of Heathens have teamed with legendary Americana artist Ray Wylie Hubbard for a special collab of The Temptations’ classic hit "Papa Was a Rolling Stone". The tune drops today and is available for download / streaming HERE.

Illinois-based Cody “Chicago Farmer” Diekhof paired up with Texas’ The Band of Heathens for Flyover Country, independently released February 7. With DJs across the country spinning many of the songs from the album, it is climbing up the Americana and Folk radio charts in an increasingly competitive landscape. In the past few  weeks the album shot up to #18 after debuting at #33 on the Americana Radio Albums Chart and is currently at #9 on the NACC Folk Radio Chart.

For recording artists, albums can be like children — it’s hard to go on record choosing one as a favorite. But Cody “Chicago Farmer” Diekhoff doesn’t hesitate to designate his forthcoming release, Flyover Country, as his “golden child.”

“I think it’s my best work so far and definitely the one that I put the most into,” Diekhoff said of the 10-song album, due out Feb. 7, 2020.

The Band of Heathens are currently on tour in the Midwest on their "Green Grass Spring Tour" and paid tribute to Prince at The Castle Theatre last night in Bloomington, IL with their own soulful take on "Purple Rain."
