Hayseed Dixie is an American band which began in the Fall of 2000 with the release of their first album, A Hillbilly Tribute to AC/DC. The band performs a mixture of cover versions of hard rock songs and original compositions in a style that is a cross between bluegrass and rock music. The band's name is a play on the name AC/DC and was originally AC/Dixie, but they were forced to change it. Claiming to hail from the fictional Deer Lick Holler, Appalachia, the band has played nearly 1,000 live dates in 21 different countries since 2001.

Kerosene Brothers is the band's alter-ego project; they released the album Choose Your Own Title under that name in 2003.

In 2005 they played at Glastonbury and the Cambridge Folk Festival. In September 2005 they held their own festival Loopallu in Ullapool, Scotland, which has become an annual event. In June 2007 they appeared on the opening day of the Download Festival and played at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark and the Wickerman Festival in Scotland in July 2007.

BBC Radio 2's Jeremy Vine is a fan of their work and infrequently plays a tune by the band. The group recorded the "When you wanna hear great music..." jingle for his show.
