Muddy Roots began in 2010 as an annual music festival at the June Bug Boogie Ranch in Cookeville, Tennessee. The music festival included camping, vendors, a car show, and a pin-up pageant.[1] In 2012, the festival expanded to Europe at the Cowboy Up Steakhouse Saloon in Waardamme, Belgium and featured the same blend of musical styles as the festival held in Tennessee.[2] Muddy Roots announced a third separate festival would be held in May 2013 at the Red River Canoe Campground in Adams, Tennessee, called the Muddy Roots Spring Weekender.[3] All of the Muddy Roots music festivals featured musicians of varying genres, including country, blues, rock and roll, rockabilly, punk rock, bluegrass and folk.

Slowboat Films recorded a documentary at the festivals in Tennessee and Europe on the evolution of American music, titled "Hard Soil." The film was released in 2014 and featured interviews and performances by some of the festivals acts, including Jayke Orvis and the Broken Band, The Goddamn Gallows, James Hunnicutt, and Reverend Beatman, to name a few.
