"I am who I am. We will keep doing what we do. The name of my band ain't gonna change," said the front-man of the band, Danny Shirley in a statement.

It's not only the band's name that is controversial to many people. It is also its logo, as it features a steam locomotive that is flying two confederate flags.

The band was formed in 1987 and so far, they released seven studio albums.

Some of the group's recently planned concerts were canceled, in states like New York and Illinois.

Critics of the band's name and logo say that it tries to represent a bad period in the country's history, "traumatizing to many people especially people of color." They say that it glorifies symbols of slavery, racial repression and puts down all efforts that happened in the US in the last centuries in the field of civil rights. Just recently, a petition on Change.org demanded that Confederate's Railroad concert in Ulster County be canceled. And it looks like that the County's officials did listen to these voices.

"The Ulster County Fair must be an event that everyone can enjoy while representing the values of all members of our community," said Pat Ryan from, Ulster County Executive. He also added that "any showcasing of a symbol of division and racism" is incompatible with said principles and "will be vigorously opposed by my administration."

Illinois canceled the planned band's appearance on 27th August for similar reasons. "I've been performing for more than 43 years and, hell, I've never seen anything like this," said the band's front-man, Danny Shirley. Among the band's most popular songs are "Daddy Never Was The Cadillac King," "Trashy Women," "Queen of Memphis," "White Trash With Money" and "Jesus and Mama."
