Hell’s 1/2 Acre


Hell Hell’s 1/2 Acre is making a name for itself in Louisville (the band’s home base) and throughout southeastern Kentucky with its own unique vision of what country, rock, pop—you name it—sound like all put together. The four group members have performed with and opened for some familiar names, including BR-549, DBT, MMJ, and the Shack Shakers.

Founder Rankin Mapother plays the bass and is one of the band’s two songwriters. Lead singer “Little” John Louie plays guitar, helps write the songs, and carries the band in vocals. Glen Howerton keeps the beat going with his forceful, song-oriented drumming. And lead guitarist John Hawkins is a regional legend.
