Midnight Run are a hard-driving, high-energy bluegrass band from Gatlinburg, Tennessee, with a passion for classic bluegrass and country music. Their influences come from Bill Monroe, Flatt and Scruggs, Jimmy Martin, Del McCoury, George Jones, and Merle Haggard.

'With Midnight Run, it is not only about the music, but connecting with the audience and leaving them with a memory that will last a lifetime.'
