Playing a by-now patented ragged and loose North Mississippi juke joint-based version of southern rock and blues, the Hill Country Revue was formed in 2008 by Cody Dickinson and Chris Chew of the North Mississippi Allstars along with drummer Ed "Hot" Cleveland, blues harpist Daniel Coburn, and guitarist Kirk Smithhart, with frequent appearances by fellow NMA-member Luther Dickinson on guitar, drummer Martin Shore, bassist Aaron Julison, and guitarist, singer, and songwriter Garry Burnside, the son of legendary bluesman R.L. Burnside. The younger Burnside's songs make up the greater part of the group's debut album, Make a Move, which was released by Razor & Tie in 2009.
