Reckless Kelly is an Americana country rock band. Formed in Idaho, the band moved to Austin, Texas in January 1997 and is now based there. The band's name was inspired by the Australian bushranger, Ned Kelly.

For two decades, Reckless Kelly has toured coast to coast relentlessly, demonstrating its longevity in a world where trendy newcomers are proclaimed the “next big thing” by spinning a couple pop hits.
Their following grows, and with an audience that truly wants to hear the lyrics and appreciate the musicianship in their arrangements, the band has moved on to play in performing arts centers and listening rooms that provide more focused and intimate encounters.

Reckless Kelly's first album, Millican, appeared in fall 1997 and was officially released in 1998. Acoustic: Live at Stubb's and The Dayfollowed two years later, after which David Abeyta replaced Pollock on lead guitar. Under the Table & Above the Sun in 2003 began the band's relationship with the high-profile Sugar Hill label and won the hearts of the music press and the honky tonkin' legend Joe Ely, who sang the band's praises in interviews. Wicked Twisted Road was released in 2005, and the next year the live album Reckless Kelly Was Here captured the band's stage presence. Bulletproof was released in summer 2008 on a new label, Yep Roc Records, and includes tracks critical of and reflecting on recent sociopolitical unfoldings, such as the Iraq War and Hurricane Katrina. In 2010, Reckless released an album of songs by one of their musical heroes, Pinto Bennett. Somewhere in Time, in the band's own words, highlighted their love of "straight-up honky tonk".
