Hey there all you lovely people, you!
I hope you've shined up your boots and grabbed your summer hats... because we have some fun North Carolina shows coming up!
May 9th, John performs solo at King's in Raleigh with The Cousins so if you're in town, be sure to check it out! He's first up, so show up early and stay late, amigos. Tell your boss you'll be in around lunch time and you'll be glad to bring him a biscuit, hashbrowns, and a coffee on your way in. :D Works every time!
May 10th, The Rosewood Bluff returns to my old stomping ground (all those years at the North Carolina School of the Arts!) and one of our favorite cities, Winston-Salem. We'll be at The Garage and we hope to see some familiar faces out and about! The weather has been beautiful lately, and it's wonderful to play The Garage this time of year. I'll be opening up solo with my country/folk originals in between Loretta Lynn and Mike Nesmith songs. The Rosewood Bluff will be hitting the stage afterwards with a new tune and I hear rumors of a new Byrds cover. Maybe Mr. Howie will bring out his fancy new 12 string? Who knows what'll happen! The bo-stevens will be sending you all home with their brand of old-school honky tonk and all the hometown heartbreak you can handle. It's a night of friends, so it'll be one not to miss. I'll be selling the new record to help you get your Rosewood Bluff fix when I'm not on the stage doing double double bass duty.
And another praiseful nod from NoDepression.com!!! "It's honky-tonk as all get out, full of twang and tension, peppered with pedal steel and hosted by a voice that sounds like it just unfurled itself from the toes of Ernest Tubb's muddy cowboy boots... Golub's pedal steel is right up there with country's finest pedlars Buddy Emmons and Ralph Mooney. Feather and Hartman sound like they're married, locked together in conjugal, rhythmic bliss, while Shearer shreds the twang into delicious slivers." DANG! High praise! Thanks all!
We are so happy you guys are loving the record as much as we enjoyed making it. We couldn't have done it without all of you lovely, wonderful fans.
