Ozark Mountain Daredevils

* The Ozark Mountain Daredevils  are an American Southern rock - country rock band formed in 1972 in Springfield, Missouri, United States. They are most widely known for their singles *" If You Wanna Get to Heaven " in 1974 and " Jackie Blue " in 1975.
Bassist Michael "Supe" Granda has also written a book about the band, It Shined.
 
According to the book, *" It Shined ", by Michael Granda, the band name was derived from "Cosmic Corn Cob & His Amazing Ozark Mountain Daredevils", a name that John Dillon came up with at a Kansas City "naming party" after the band was told that the name they had previously been using, "Family Tree", was already taken. The band shortened the name because none of the band members at the time wanted to be called "Cosmic Corn Cob", and they did not want the name to sound similar to the Amazing Rhythm Aces. The band is sometimes also affectionately referred to by its fans as "The Ducks".
