Hailing from Richmond, Virginia, Woody Woodworth & The Piners are part of the newest revival of country music in Virginia. Established in 2016, the Piners are named for the bygone expression to Pine – a deep longing for something or someone. Influenced by Virginia’s deep musical history and Appalachian culture, Woody Woodworth & The Piners fuse storytelling with country, bluegrass, and rock and roll to create a sound that can be described as Appalachian alt-country with a steady shot of southern rock.

Woodworth’s down-home stage presence and honest vocals are backed by a no holds bar honky-tonk twang, lonesome harmonica, sawing fiddle, and driving rhythm section that draws you in and leaves you longing for a time not forgotten.

Woodworth, a Virginia native, was born and raised in working-class family where music was an integral part of daily life. At an early age, he was introduced to the sounds of Dolly Parton, George Jones, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, and Johnny Cash through his beloved grandparent’s obsession with the Grand Ole Opry and country music.

Woodworth became intrigued by regional tales woven into the music, and started writing his own songs at the age of twelve. His mother, a self-proclaimed “hippie," educated him on sounds from the late 60’s and early 70’s and introduced him to the best of Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Charlie Daniels, The Allman Brothers Band, Marshall Tucker Band, and Lynyrd Skynyrd among many others.

As a songwriter, Woodworth embodies the heart of Appalachia with his haunting melodies and tales of love, loss, and the American spirit. Woodworth writes songs of the blue-collar working class that are easy on the ears and heavy on the heart.

In 2018 Woodworth released his debut album Virginia. Americana-UK reviewed the album citing Woodworth as “…a seriously accomplished writer,”and that “…there’s something about his music that’s utterly convincing. He has that ache in his voice that imbues his every word with portent and meaning,” defining it as “…excellent folksy Americana set that marks the emergence of a serious talent.”— Jeremy Searle, Americana-UK.

Woody Woodworth & The Piners released two singles in 2020, Cherokee Maggie and Long Way Down, and a full-length live album titled Live at Richmond Music Hall. In 2023, the band is set to release two studio LPs: Outlaws & Saints, and Rebels & Dreamers.
