BULLETVILLE is a straight-up Country music offshoot of Magnolia Mountain that features MM's Mark, Renee, and Jeff, joined by some of the finest musicians in the area. The band plays a combination of Mark's original songs and a great selection of classic country covers by the likes of Waylon Jennings, Tammy Wynette, George Jones, Loretta Lynn, Gram Parsons, and more. Bulletville "is as country as country once was, bypassing the focus group-tested formula spoon fed to today’s commercial masses and served straight up. These songs are meant to be heard amidst both neon bar room glow and a barren moonlit road." (Bucket Full of Nails).

The band made its live debut in November 2012, and is now gigging around the greater Cincinnati area. Check the GIGS page for upcoming Bulletville shows, and be sure to "Like" the Bulletville Facebook Page for even more current updates.

Bulletville served as the backing band for Mark's solo album, Four Chords and a Lie, released in July 2013. A full-length Bulletville album is in the works for 2014, with The Afghan Whigs' John Curley set to produce.
