Charleston, SC – Huk, the nation’s leading manufacturer of performance fishing gear, has partnered with Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician Billy Strings on three new custom-designed tees. Incorporating art from Billy’s upcoming US tour, which kicks off Dec 30th in New Orleans, LA., the designs reflect Billy’s passion for fishing and his unique musical perspective.
Billy is a singular generational artist, expressing himself by writing songs that reach well beyond a single genre. The Billy Strings-inspired Huk tees will incorporate one-of-a-kind fishing-inspired themes that combine his unique passion for music, art, and fishing.
Huk’s connection with Billy stems from his off-stage love of bass fishing. “That’s what I do. I go fishing as often as I can. Sometimes, I’ll get home from a long tour and should probably go to bed, but instead, I put my boat in the water.” says Strings. “My boat, full of fishing rods, lures, cigarette packs, and empty snack wrappers, is where I find some peace and quiet and get away from the pressure of touring and life on the road. If you love fishing like we all do, you get it.”
Raised in Michigan and now based in Nashville, Strings is known as one of music’s most compelling artists. Since his 2017 debut, he has been awarded several accolades, including Best Bluegrass Album at the 63rd GRAMMY Awards, Artist of the Year at the 2022 Americana Music Awards, Entertainer of the Year, and Song of the Year at the 2022 International Bluegrass Music Association Awards, Best New Headliner at the 2022 Pollstar Awards, Breakthrough Artist of the Pandemic at the 2021 Pollstar Awards, and was named Entertainer of the Year and Guitar Player of the Year at the IBMA Awards. He has performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Austin City Limits, and Bluegrass Underground.
