Nashville Pussy is an American hard rock band from Atlanta, Georgia. Many of their songs are about sex, drugs, drinking, fighting, and rock & roll. Their musical style mixes punk rock, Southern metal, boogie rock and psychobilly. Much of their music is not what would be considered traditionally "radio friendly", due to their frequent use of expletives and vulgar terminology. Initially called Hell's Half-Acre, the band's name comes from Ted Nugent's introduction to "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang" on the Double Live Gonzo album.

The core lineup of Nashville Pussy consists of husband-and-wife duo Blaine Cartwright and Ruyter Suys (pronounced "Rider Sighs"), and drummer Jeremy Thompson. Original bassist Corey Parks (sister of former NBA basketball player Cherokee Parks) left after the album High as Hell, to be replaced by Katielyn Campbell (of the band C'mon) for the album Say Something Nasty. Campbell was subsequently replaced by Karen Cuda for the album Get Some.

Nashville Pussy's sixth studio album, released February 2009, is entitled From Hell to Texas.

Blaine Cartwright formed the cowpunk band Nine Pound Hammer in 1985, which disbanded in 1997 with the formation of Nashville Pussy. Cartwright's former band, Nine Pound Hammer, has reunited and plays the introduction song for the Adult Swim cartoon 12 Oz. Mouse. Cartwright also had a cameo in the Mr. Show spinoff movie Run Ronnie Run as Duke's Bar Owner.

Nashville Pussy received a Best Metal Performance Grammy nomination for their song "Fried Chicken And Coffee" from their debut release, Let Them Eat Pussy (1998, The Enclave),[1] and their songs "Come On, Come On" and "Hate & Whisky" were featured in the video game Jackass the Game. Additionally, "Snake Eyes" was in the video game Rogue Trip and "Shoot First and Run Like Hell" was in the movie Super Troopers.

Since then, however, the band has remained largely underground, however gaining a large rock club scene cult following, and in Europe[2], Australia[3], Japan and the rest of the world[4], the band has a modest fanbase. Grassroots promotion of the band has been aided by their taper-friendly show recording policy. The band contributed music to the tattoo instructional DVD, "Dead Mans Ruin- Advanced Tattoo Techniques" [5] by Derek Dufresne. A very sought after tattoo artist from Victoria, BC, Canada.
