In the national publication Bluegrass Unlimited, one music reviewer referred to Cedar Hill as the fun bunch of the genre. The multi-talented group loves to make audiences laugh with their wit, off-beat humor, and their great collection of novelty songs, such as Mama Don’t Allow, My Own Grandpa, and You Done Stomped on My Heart.
