Check out the Best of 2015 in Americana Music and discover your next favorite band.
Adds this week: suit & tie rock from 6 String Drag, dreamy escapism from HT Sundowner, indie rock from Whitehorse, Latin-pop rock from the Mavericks
Kenny Roby talks about getting 6 String Drag back together after 15 years, his inspiration from Doug Sahm, and plays tracks from the new album.
Also on this episode, rapturous soul from JJ Grey & Mofro, traditional bluegrass from Robert Earl Keen, poignant love song from James McMurtry, new Latin-pop from The Mavericks, blues from Steve Earle & the Dukes, a rare Lead Belly recording, deep twang from Jim Lauderdale, and alt-country from The Menders.
On Roots Rock ‘N’ Roll, 6 String Drag do that clean cut, tight, horn-rimmed glasses kind of Rock ‘N’ Roll. Somewhere in heaven, Roy Orbison is very pleased.
