ABOUT

I'm wanting to get with a few like minded musicians to play new and old country along
with some classic rock.
I am currently learning some Eric Church and Rhett Akins tunes.
I can vocally hit most Brooks and Dunn tunes as well as Dwight Yoakam.
I can also carry a Waylon Jennings voice if not covered in a smokey bar.
I'd like to think that we could all practice our parts well enough to have them perfected so that when we practice together it is not "to practice our parts" but to
practice how to smoothly combine them so we get a good sound as well as learn from each other and about each others styles. Recording it and playing it back to hear and learn from our mistakes would be great.

Influences

The great outlaws: Jennings, Jones, Haggard, Cash, Coe, Nelson, Williams, and
so many others too numerous to mention here.
The new country "that get it right and arn't just repeating another pop song to please the record company with songs about tailgates, hunting, fishing, etc." but are writing
something they felt and are sincere about in their life.
Allman brothers, The Black Crows, Blackcherry Smoke, Lynard Skynard, Bob Segar,
John Mellencamp, Kid Rock, Govt Mule, George Thorougood, Stevie Ray Vaughn,
The Cult, Social Distortian, Ted Nugent, Ray Wylie Hubbard, some red dirt Texans,
Joe Ely, Whitey Morgan and the 78s, Bo Diddley, Joe Walsh, Thin Lizzy, Steven Tyler,
ZZ Top, Blackfoot, The Eagles, REO Speedwagon, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles,
Chris Isaak, (yeah, he plays guitar too), Johnny Lang, Kenny Wayne Sheppard, and so many others that bring their soul into their guitar playing and song writing skills.
