Count This Penny is from Madison, Wisconsin by way of East Tennessee. They write songs born of doggedly traveling to and from the hills of home. Since their first show at the Down Home's Open Hoot in 2009, CTP has appeared on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion, Wisconsin Public Radio, Wisconsin Public Television's 30-Minute Music Hour, and WDVX's Blue Plate Special in Knoxville, Tennessee. Following their national radio debut in March, their EP hit the #6 spot on the iTunes singer-songwriter chart. The band's October 2012 release, Pitchman, was the final record produced at Madison's legendary Smart Studios, and features some of the band's favorite hometown musicians. After a short summer tour (and supporting the likes of Sarah Jarosz, Joe Pug, and Kelly Hogan), they'll close out the year with headlining shows around Wisconsin.
