Folks I really should do MORE of these artist features because I so greatly enjoy
researching all these bands I discover.
Others turn the bands on to me as well, I literally get thousands of inbox messages
a week with new music…new to me.

Now as I previously stated these are NOT new bands they are just ones I have never featured on here
or just did not know about.
The Howling Brothersare a Nashville based three piece string band
They play old time blues and bluegrass and tonight they are playing the Exit In and sadly due to
health problems tonight I couldn’t go.

They have three full length albums out “Howl” “Trouble” and “The Sun Studio Session”
which is an EP.
They describe themselves as Appalachian punk rockers formed a jug band.
I’m going to post a few videos on here so you can check out their music as well.
I LOVE their harmonies and how they sing..I could listen to them ALL NIGHT!

You can damn sure bet that I’ll be covering one of their shows sometime in the near
future. I’m really sorry I missed it tonight.

Yeah I know…I know..I write a lot of articles for The Exit In but heck
I can’t help myself. They have such good shows and honestly it is one of my favorite venues
to see a show in Nashville.

Fresh off his release of his LIVE album AND an all acoustic album,
Whitey Morgan who like a small handful of others is burning up the highways playing a WHOPPING
amount of shows yearly.

His live shows are ALWAYS a good time full of whiskey soaked table thumping
Honky Tonk music, and his band the 78’s are no exception to the rule.
He’s one of my top acts I enjoy going out to support live.

On Saturday December 13th he stops in Nashville at the Exit In and I’m sure
this will be a GREAT NIGHT of music.
There will a small door cover and make sure you hit the merch booth when you go
he has a FULL LINE of great merch items for you.
So go out and support this great show in Nashville!

Last October at Outlaw Fest the main act for Saturday night was Dallas Moore and he did one of the top three
shows of the weekend. He’s always been a definite crowd please and his show is full
of great songs.
My first encounter with him was last October in Altamont Tn at the Outlaw benefit
and I have been a fan ever since.

He is based in the Ohio area prominently but he is a regular road warrior
touring effortlessly and does a whopping amount of shows!
And TRUST ME his live show is absolute CHAOS.
I been researching and supporting roots music and independent music for many
many years and I’ll say this..the top three guitarists of it all in my opinion
is Rory Kelly, James Hunnicutt and this man Dallas Moore.
He has training in every genre of music from Heavy Metal to Classical.

On January 31st Dallas Moore will unleash his newest fury at Bobby Mackey’s
Haunted Honky Tonk in Wilder Kentucky.
This place is TRULY one of America’s finest venues in EVERY form.

Bobby Mackey is a true Country Music Legend in his own right.
He’s been running his venue and playing Country Music there for over
30 years. The place is like my home…a museum and every time I go there
I have to soak in the walls and all that hang there.

His new album will be called “Dark Horse Rider” and will
be available that night.
