Considered “one of America’s most consistently interesting bands,” Wilco provides music genres for everyone, spanning from alternative country to experimental rock. Formed in 1994, Wilco began playing country, earning minimal success, but in 2002, they released Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, an album considered one of the 500 greatest albums of all time by Rolling Stone, selling over 590,000 copies. Since then, Wilco has maintained success, receiving two Grammys for their fifth studio album, A Ghost is Born. Their latest album, Sky Blue Sky, sold over 87,000 copies in its first week, hitting the charts in the U.S. and internationally.
