Dixiana was an American country music band. Founded in 1986, the band was composed of five members: brothers Mark (bass guitar, vocals) and Phil Lister (guitar, vocals), Randall Griffith (keyboards), Colonel Shuford (drums), and Cindy Murphy (lead vocals).[1] Signed to Epic Records in 1992, they released their self-titled debut album that year.[2] It produced three singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts. The album received a C- rating from Entertainment Weekly, who described it as "generic country-pop" but highlighed lead vocalist Murphy as a "strong suit".[2] A second album, The Gospel Truth, was issued independently[1] before the band's members parted ways. Mark and Phil Lister have since co-founded a recording studio called Dixiana Music.[3]
