“If You Want To Get To Heaven”
“It’ll Shine When It Shines”
With eight albums selling over two million records and worldwide hits like “Jackie Blue” and “If You Want To Get To Heaven” the Ozark Mountain Daredevils have come a long way from the Missouri bars and porches where their music was born.
It all began for the Daredevils in 1971 when a collection of singer songwriters from the Springfield area put together a band as an outlet for their song writing. They Played their first gig near the end of 1971 and, in the spring of the following year, went into the studio to make a demo tape. Their first album contained the smash hit “If You Wanna Get To Heaven” written by Cash and Dillon, and produced a gold album. The pop”Jackie Blue”, written by Cash and Larry Lee, came from the second album “It’ll Shine When It Shines”, and was a top-five worldwide record.
The band has made subsequent albums, and continues to build their audience through records and touring across the U.S. and Canada, performing for their large cult following. The band was described by Rolling Stone Magazine as “A mixture of Country, Appalachia, the south, and Rock & Roll”.
