1) The Tractors was an American country rock band formed in Tulsa in 1988 and headed by guitarist Steve Ripley (1950-2019).

Subsequently a loosely associated group of musicians headed by Ripley, under the band's original lineup the band was signed to Arista Records in 1994, releasing their self-titled debut album that year. The album featured the single "Baby Likes to Rock It" and became the fastest-selling debut album from a country group to go platinum. A Christmas album called Have Yourself a Tractors Christmas soon followed. The band was nominated for two Grammy Awards and won the Country Weekly 1995 Golden Pick Award for Favorite New Group. Their true follow-up, Farmers in a Changing World, was released in 1998.
Since then, most of the band's original members moved on to separate projects, although they often collaborated with Ripley on The Tractors' subsequent recordings.
Ripley released the next album, Fast Girl, with several other musicians, in 2001 on Audium Entertainment . After Fast Girl, The Tractors left Audium and formed their own label, Boy Rocking Records. In 2009 "Trade Union" was released on E1.

2) The Tractors was a short-lived British indie/alternative band from the suburbs of Liverpool. They were active in the second half of the 1980s.
