Notes from the road...
So here we are. A new CD. A new website. 3 weeks after the release, "Not That Lucky" sits at number 8 on the Americana Music Chart. Not bad. Not bad at all. It's 4:35 pm and we've just picked Rhoades up from his dwelling in Austin, TX and we're headed up to Burleson to play the first of many shows on a 12 day run that will take us through Rhoades's hometown of Goshen, IN, up to Green Bay, WI, down to Chicago, IL, and back through St. Louis, MO, etcetera, etcetera... We've had several weeks of numerous shows all over our great state and have had the opportunity to play some true Texas treasures such as Gruene Hall, and the Granada Theatre, as well as some great new joints like Willie's Place in Carl's Corner. We've also had the chance to catch up with some good pals on the road like Stoney Larue and his boys and Mark McKinney and his band as well. Our crowds aren't always big, but always rowdy and we always have a really good time. We're looking forward to getting out and seeing some new places and meeting new folks everywhere this adventure takes us. Hopefully if you're reading this you're also looking ahead to see when we'll be coming through your town. Be sure to pick up a copy of our new CD and come say hello to us, it's always great to meet you all, the folks who make this possible for us to do! Be safe out there and we'll talk again soon.
