Nashville Pussy is an American hard rock band from Atlanta, Georgia. Their musical style mixes punk rock, boogie rock, Southern metal and psychobilly. Much of the band's lyrical themes mostly revolve around sex, drugs, drinking, fighting, and rock 'n' roll. Initially called Hell's Half-Acre, the band's name comes from Ted Nugent's introduction to "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang" on the ''Double Live Gonzo'' album.

Following the initial 1997 breakup of Kentucky cowpunk band Nine Pound Hammer, guitarist Blaine Cartwright formed Nashville Pussy where he would take up vocal duties in addition to guitar. The core lineup of Nashville Pussy consists of husband-and-wife duo Blaine Cartwright and Ruyter Suys (pronounced "Rider Sighs"), and drummer Jeremy Thompson. Original drummer Adam Neal (Nine Pound Hammer) left to form The Hookers. Original bassist Corey Parks (sister of former NBA basketball player Cherokee Parks) left after the album ''High as Hell'', to be replaced by Katielyn Campbell (of the band C'mon) for the album ''Say Something Nasty''. Campbell was subsequently replaced by Karen Cuda for the album ''Get Some''.

Nashville Pussy have released four full-length studio albums, one EP, two live DVDs, and one live audio recording.
