A Shoals band has been invited to play an international music festival this summer.

The Valley Roots will be playing in this year's "South by Southwest" festival in Austin.

The young group has only been playing together for seven months and is made up of band members Christian White, Brittany Letsinger, Edward Armstead, Quinn Stanphill and CJ Anderson.

The band said they're thrilled to represent Muscle Shoals music at the festival and help put the city back in the music spotlight.

"It's completely an honor. We get to represent the city we're from. It's a great honor to try to make a comeback," they said.

The Civil Wars and the Alabama Shakes have previously played at the festival.
