Default Country rock band name? ;/

Hey guys!

So me and my best friend from school have always been performing together (he sings and plays rhythm, I play lead guitar), and we've recently formed a really exciting country rock band.

It's a six piece with 3 key members (the singer and myself being 2 of them), similar vibe to counting crows or needtobreathe.

We are really stuck for a band name, these are some of the ideas we've had so far:

*something with "brothers" in it to signify the closeness of the core members of the band
*Highway something
*we liked the imagery of "lights"
*some reference to south/southern - we are from south UK, and like sound from a lot of southern music in US
*Tiburon is name of singers house, named after the place in US. I really like how it sounds so was thinking something like Brothers Tiburon.
*Brothers Before has been suggested although I'm not too keen personally

Any suggestions would be hugely hugely hugely appreciated, we are about to release our first single but really need a name to build up hype before hand haha.

Thank you!!

Rather than "Brothers Tiburon", I'd say just go with Tiburon. It's a good name for a band, short and snappy, unusual enough for people to remember. Also, it's your call of course, but I think "brothers" in a band name is very cliched.

I also like the idea of a band name that does not sound too incongruous later on when there are personnel changes or shifts in the style of music you choose to play. "Southern" is a little - how shall I put it? prescriptive. "Tiburon", while being a nod to your interest in the US south, leaves the door open if you later decide to play Celtic folk or jazz fusion.

Besides The Bellamy Brothers, and the Allman Brothers Band in Country/Country-Rock music I can't think of another band with "Brothers" in their name. The Brothers Johnson don't count cause they are Funk and this thread topic is all about Country band names.
