    Awesome! Cactus Jumpstart is going to be my next band. I like Magnolia Highway, too. That'd be good for a Southern Rock Band.

    Combining an American and a more British term could work well for the OP:

    High Plains Roundabout

    Magnolia Highway was #2 my short list of band names. We ended up going with “Live Oak Conspiracy.”

    I might keep Magnolia Highway on standby for a future project (acoustic duo). But go for it if you like it. It's not like I own it or anything.

    No, I'm quite keen on Cactus Jumpstart. I used to live in Arizona and I've experienced a cactus jumpstart!

    I could play this all day! Found half a dozen good combos there already - not including Oleander Roundabout!

    Thinking of something along these lines - something that combines US and/or Nashville and something typically English.

    Thought I'd cracked it with American English but Google tells me there's a U.S. Beatles tribute with that name already.

    Maybe something with "Stoke" as it means a "place"?
    Something like Tennessee Stoke?

    A lot of modern country pop music has a sense of humor and seems to flaunt rehashing generic stereotypes just for the fun of it. How many songs mention front seats of pickup trucks, daisy dukes, and a thousand other cliches?
    So a little humor, sorry, humour, in the name is ok IMO.
    I fronted a soul/blues band for awhile years ago, the bass player came up with what I considered a great name so we ran with it: Soul Train Wreck.

    I'd go for 'The other Kind',from the Steve Earle song.

    Do it now.
