A new country music song written about deer and deer hunting is gaining a tremendous amount of popularity and airplay.

“Whitetail Ridge” is a song about hunting, hard work and good, old-fashioned country values. Performed by the duo Kari and Billy, the song was officially introduced to the hunting world through BOWTECH Archery earlier this year at the ATA Show in Louisville.

Kari Nelson has toured with John Rich and Big & Rich and has also played with artists such as Gretchen Wilson, Steel Magnolia, Trace Adkins and Joanna Smith. She has appeared in several music videos with John Rich and Big & Rich as well as a commercial that aired during the 2011 college football season on ESPN’s College GameDay. Kari also performed fiddle and backup vocals for John Rich on the Celebrity Apprentice Finale in May 2011.

Billy Arnold was born in Florida but raised in Alabama. He grew up hunting, fishing, and playing sports, and developed a true love for the outdoors. Billy also grew up listening to country music. “My mom always had the radio on…I’d hear songs from Conway Twitty and Alabama to Randy Travis and Merle Haggard. I always loved music, but I was so shy I never dreamed I’d be a part of it someday.”
