There are 12 achievements with a total of 250 points.
- Estimated achievement difficulty: 4/10
Here we are again; yet another track pack. This time it features country music, so I hope you can stand it long enough to clean it up!
The first thing you will want to do is to plug in or connect your drum kit and play "Hillbilly Deluxe" by Brooks & Dunn on Expert and, at the very least, hit all of the kick drum notes (orange lines) and get at least a 200 note streak. Upon completion of the song, if you've done the two above criteria, you will unlock Doggone Drummer and Make the Earth Quake.
Now comes the fun part. Grab three local friends (no online, again) and create a full band. If you can only find one friend, skip to the next paragraph. Play the song "Free & Easy (Down the Road I Go)" by Dierks Bentley and have everyone on instruments hit all of the notes and the singer sing all of the phrases "Awesome"-ly to unlock Free & Easy. During this time, take the time to activate Overdrive ten times between everyone in the band to unlock Can't Take It With You.

|Free & Easy||20|
|Full band clears "Free & Easy" with 100% notes hit on any difficulty|
As per the achievement requirements, you'll need to find three local friends who can play in a full band. You can do this on any difficulty, so you should have everyone on Easy to make sure you can hit every note. If you have trouble with hitting 100% of the notes, you just have to practice.
Overstrums on guitars and overhits on drums do not negate the achievement. You also do not have to upstrum on bass.
|Can't Take it with You||10|
|Band members activate Overdrive a total of 10 times in a single song|
To earn overdrive you must hit a white, glowing section of notes perfectly. Doing this twice will allow you to activate Overdrive. If you have a two player band, both players will need to do this an average of five times each which is possible with Unison Bonuses.
This achievement can be obtained with one person playing Medium Guitar and one person playing Easy Vocals on "Any Man of Mine". Or, if one person has a guitar and microphone, they can do it themselves. To get the achievement, simply play with at LEAST the above two instruments and activate overdrive as soon as the instrument is able.
|Smooth Talkin' Son of a Gun||15|
|Beat "Suds in the Bucket" on Expert Vocals|
"Suds in the Bucket" is rated as a two-star song, which means it may be difficult for new singers. Thankfully, you don't have to have a gold star performance to unlock the achievement. As long as you manage to pass, you earn the achievement.
If you have trouble with the achievement, go into "Training" mode and practice singing until you can score at least 85% on it, and can also sing Overdrive phrases well enough to earn some throughout the song, because if you are having trouble, this will be your saving grace.
|Make the Earth Quake||15|
|Hit 100% of the kick drum notes for any song on Expert|
The song "Hillbilly Deluxe" by Brooks and Dunn is the easiest drum song on this track pack. It's a slow song for drums and there aren't any surprising parts, let alone double kicks or anything fancy to throw you off.
|We're Better Together||25|
|Score 10 million total points across all songs in Band Tour|
Scoring 10,000,000 points throughout 20 songs means you need to average 500,000 points per song. In a two-player band, this means you will probably need to play either very well on Medium. If you can, play earlier songs on higher difficulties to score more points.
|You and Your Gang||30|
|Finish Band Tour mode on any difficulty|
No fancy tricks here, just need at least one friend to make a band and complete the Band Career. Any and all players can be on any difficulty they please as long as all 20 songs are completed.
|Complete Solo Tour on any difficulty with any instrument||(1)|
Just like the Band Career achievement, nothing fancy here. This time, just pick your favorite instrument and complete a Solo Career on any difficulty.
|Earn 75 stars across all songs in Solo or Band Tour|
Stars are awarded based on how many points you scored in a song. These numbers vary from song to song but the formula is the same. This can be done at the time you go for Chuggin' Along or You and Your Gang as well, and should be easy enough to do.
|Drop the Hammer||15|
|Hit all hammer-on notes in "Satellite Radio"|
Thankfully, you don't have to do this on Guitar, even though the description really doesn't say you have to anyway. The easiest way for you to do this is on Hard Bass. On Hard Bass, the chart is slow and there are no more than two hammer-on/pull-off notes at a time.
|Every Hand's a Winner||25|
|Every band member scores over 90% of notes hit in "The Gambler"|
This isn't exactly the hardest thing to do in the game. 90% on a song is actually very feasible if you play good enough to pass. Obviously, the best course of action is to try and hit all the notes. Just note that you need at least a two-player band to unlock this. If you're having any trouble, just drop a difficulty.
|Complete Solo Tour on Expert with any instrument|
This is the hardest achievement in the game, but it's not that bad. Country music is not exactly known for fast-paced music, though some songs are. I'd recommend doing this on guitar, as the only really hard song is "Sin Wagon" by The Dixie Chicks. However, if you are better at another instrument then by all means go with that.
|Get a 200 note streak playing Drums|
Notes on drums are counted differently than the other instruments. Each part of a note that you hit is counted as one single note towards you're note streak. For example, if you have a snare, cymbal, and kick note, and you hit them all, you have just hit three notes and not one.
