Initially formed in 2006, Gangstagrass started to see its music reaching a wide audience when the band’s song “Long Hard Times to Come”, was selected to be the opening theme song of the acclaimed television show Justified on FX in early 2010. On July 8, 2010, Gangstagrass producer Rench and rapper T.O.N.E.Z were nominated for an Emmy in the category of Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music for “Long Hard Times to Come.

Gangstagrass released the full length album Lightning On The Strings, Thunder On The Mic featuring T.O.N.E-z in 2010, and another full length album Rappalachia featuring various rappers in 2012.
