Cleverlys, The


    • From Cane Spur, Arkansas, a fictional Ozark town.
    • On stage, they portray a family bluegrass band: Digger Cleverly (guitar), Ricky Lloyd Cleverly (bass), Cub Cleverly (mandolin), DVD Cleverly (banjo) and Sock Cleverly (fiddle).
    • Who they really are: Paul Harris (Digger), Matt Skates (Ricky Lloyd), Cameron Owens (Cub), Will McLean (DVD) and Matt Flake (Sock).
    • The band was the brainchild of Harris, a stand-up comedian who performed for many years in Branson, Missouri. Originally from Mountain View, Arkansas, he moved to Nashville in 2005 and came up with the idea for the Cleverlys there.
    • Dressed in exaggerated hillbilly-cowboy costumes, they specialize in bluegrass covers of popular songs along with the comedy routines of Harris.
    • 2010, they made their first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry.
    • 2019, released Blue album (Mountain Home).
