the everybodyfields were an independent folk/country band from Johnson City, Tennessee. The band was fronted by Sam Quinn and Jill Andrews who met when they were nineteen while both working at a summer camp. Most recently, they were joined by guitarist and keyboardist Josh Oliver, pedal steel player Tom Pryor, and drummer Jamie Cook. the everybodyfields combine country, folk, bluegrass, rock and roll, and Americana to produce a unique sound that Harp Magazine called "stompin’ and twangin’ in world-class style." Sam Quinn's song "T.V.A." from Halfway There: Electricity and the South won 1st place in the Chris Austin Songwriting Contest 2005 at Merlefest. "Lonely Anywhere," from the album Nothing is Okay, was chosen by NPR as Song Of The Day for 29 February 2008.
Lately, the everybodyfields were the focus of increasing attention as a representative of the alternative country genre. They were chosen to play at Bonnaroo, Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion and Twangfest in 2008.
On June 5, 2009, the band posted an announcement on their website indicating that they would disband in order for Sam Quinn and Jill Andrews to pursue their respective solo careers.
