From the blog
I wasn’t prepared for the level of infectious enthusiasm that permeates this set of twangy bar rock music from Al Huckabee And The Huckabee Family Band
The Highballers self-titled indie-rock album has just the right amount of country ache to turn it into a cowpunk classic.
Born, Raised, and Live From Flint by Whitey Morgan and the 78s delivers tough bluesy honky-tonk like nails from a nail gun.
Remedy from Mary Johnson Rockers & the Spark is full of soulful folk rock with just the right amount of twang.
Mary Johnson Rockers & The Spark will be my in-studio guests tonight on the live show to play twangy folk-rock tracks from their latest album, Remedy.
Country-Soul-Gospel from Marty Stuart, Urban country rock from Cracker, new folk-country-rock from The Dirty River Boys, and more…
Folks compare the Dirty River Boys to Mumford & Sons Lumineers, but their self-titled album is tougher, grittier, than anything those bands could muster.
The two disc Berkely To Bakersfield by Cracker has one disc of hard-edged urban rock and one disc of twangy country.
