CONCORD, NC (WBTV) - The Avett Brothers band has been plugging away at the local music scene since 2000. Seth and Scott Avett are from rural Concord where they grew up around music.

The brothers and their two other band-mates have developed a huge following over the years, enough to draw the attention of Columbia Records and sign a deal.

The newest release, I and Love and You is scheduled to come out next Tuesday. The night before, the band is scheduled to make an appearance on David Letterman.

The Avett Brothers manager, Dolph Ramseur says they've reached the success in their careers by maintaining a grass-roots style and always being loyal to fans.
