The duo was later joined by Lawhon and Wells and Black Stone Cherry was officially founded in June 2001.
The band started off by playing at small bars and clubs around their hometown. They slowly started gathering a fan following and in 2003, they independently released a demo, titled Rock N’ Roll Tape. They caught the attention of Roadrunner Records and soon signed on with the label.
