Their version of Classic Country goes down as smooth as a glass of Bourbon. The good stuff.
Dan Auerbach with Easy Eye Sound, right before our very ears, is about to resurrect John Anderson’s career. Here is the second single to be released in advance of the upcoming album.
The Hot Country Knights have one stated mission and that is to bring 90’s Country back to the mainstream. Why you ask? We have no idea. But, if lead singer Douglas Douglason and Keytar player Terry Dvoraczekynski have anything to say about things these guys will be here to stay. The jury is still out as to whether these guys just have their collective tongues planted firmly in their cheeks or if they are the countrified version of Steel Panther. Only time will tell. Here, the guys play the role for all its worth with 90’s Country legend Travis Tritt.
The next wave of Country music to come back in style is the 80’s tear in your beer Classic Country in the King George Strait style. And, frankly, we here at Rock is the New Roll Roll say “bring it on cowboy.” This one is from a newcomer to the scene, William Michael Morgan
We are trying really hard NOT to like this Dripping Springs, Texas band. With their Nudie style outfits and Cosmic Cowboy embracing 70’s Glen Campbell vibe that takes us back in a Honky Tonk time machine, it is almost as if they are trying too hard to be cool. But heck, we don’t care anymore. It is official, we dig this band!
Going back in time to their highly excellent 2016 Mockingbird record.
Mike and the Moonpies along with Micky and the Motorcars are two of the best Country acts working the Honky Tonk scene today. They both are great live acts with dirt country Roots Rock sensibilities along with solid songwriting.
