“Teddy and the Rough Riders are one of my favorite Nashville bands, and given the chance, they will unite the hippies and the cowboys, the bikers and the stoners with their groovy country songs.” -Margo Price
“One of the best country acts making music today. Teddy and The Rough Riders combine a beautiful sincerity with their incredible neo-classic country sound.” -Orville Peck
Teddy and the Rough Riders are a country-rock band led by Ryan Jennings and Jack Quiggins. The group has long bridged the gap between Nashville’s rock and honky-tonk scenes. Their sound is the direct product of being born ‘n’ bred in Nashville, steeped in its country music history and mysticism, while coming up in its DIY rock community. Jennings and Quiggins grew up just blocks from Music Row, in Nashville’s West End (where the original outlaw movement came together during the ‘70s), where both the shiny and gritty influences of country music intersected. As a result, their music is as down-home as it is far-out.
Their self-titled record, produced by Margo Price, came out in July 2021 via Appalachia Record Co. Teddy and the Rough Riders was the band’s debut studio album, but their previous work includes home recordings and a release on Third Man Records. They spent last spring touring as Orville Peck's opening act– featuring a hometown performance at The Ryman. They’ve served as backing band for Emily Nenni on many tours, including one last fall opening for Charley Crockett. They just returned from a month-long Scandinavian tour, and played many headlining shows across the states between all of those. Catch ‘em on the road now!
