My Morning Jacket is an indie rock group whose unique Southern rock-country-jam band sound gained respect and admiration from both critics and listeners alike. The band’s eclectic and distinctive musical style set it apart from the typical indie crowd and helped skyrocket it into the ranks of music elite.

Recently, the band was featured as a musical guest on Saturday Night Live, performing songs from the latest release, Evil Urges, including the hit single, “I’m Amazed.” The band has also seen exposure in other outlets, nabbing covers of Spin Magazine as well as Billboard, and was named “Best Breakthrough Artist” in Rolling Stone’s Best of Rock issue. My Morning Jacket’s live performances have also made headlines, such as the band’s groundbreaking four hour jam at this year’s Bonnaroo music festival.
