HomeGrown: The Black Lillies

From Country Music Television to the Grand Ole Opry, The Black Lillies' Americana sound resonates on radio charts.

"You know when you walk on the Opry stage it's going to be fantastic," said Trisha Gene Brady.

With several Independent Music Awards, their most recent record, "100 Miles of Wreckage" is one of the Top 40 Americana Albums of 2011, pretty remarkable considering the band's only been together four years.

"We've all had our own separate journeys musically and through life and our roads brought us to Knoxville," said Cruz Contreras.
