Rail Rider Records is proud to announce that Reverend Red and Duane Mark will be hitting the road together in September 2017!!! It has been nearly 2 years, since we have been able to get their tour schedules sync’d up, so it’s time to take this party from one end of the country to the other!

2015 this duo brought us the Fry Pharmacy Sessions where each of them had one side of the album, and I’m hoping that they will continue this format. I’m equally looking forward to Muddy Roots this year, where they are both featured.

Anchor gigs have been locked down and will be announced soon. The remaining dates are filling fast, so make sure a promoter or venue near you gets in on this, before the dates are all full! Send any booking inquiries to: mother@ihateduanemark.com or redadvocate@yahoo.com

This article turns my attention to some of the Roots Music I feature on my website, and many people don’t share my enthusiasm for this genre of music but I never cared. See those involved might not LOOK like they do, but the musicians involved in Roots Music oftentimes GREATLY appreciate and idolize the Legends of Country and Bluegrass.

In 2010 I traveled down to Cookville Tn for a festival I had NO idea WHAT to expect, and I was really afraid to talk to anybody. I remember thinking that I’m a nerd and would get beat up, oddly enough I walked away from that festival having enjoyed some truly awesome music. I also met some of the people that would forever scribe a notch within my soul and inspire my website that has become my life.

I’m NOT good with nuts and bolts or mechanics BUT I CAN tell you George Morgan died July 7th 1975. See, music is the ONLY thing I’m really good at aside from hunting and firearms. I don’t honestly know many of this group personally, however the ones I DO KNOW I have an appreciation for.

Muddy Roots Music Festival has become a staple yearly core event for this website, and many of the bands that it has featured have went on further to become featured by me in other articles. And Mr. Anderson Allen AKA 40rty is now one of those people, he recently released a new album called “Happy Murder” independently.

We recently exchanged a few messages on social media, as Mr. Anderson was recently overseas for some shows in other countries. He’s been taking part in other festivals as well, and doing full bands shows. Here is a full track listing of his album Happy Murder:

    1. Welcome home
    2. Rolling Down The Road
    3. Happy
    4. Homies
    5. The Hangover Song
    6. Swan Song
    7. God’s Wounds
    8. Salem
    9. Mudershark
    10. Sorry
    11. Better And Better
    12. Fly Me To Heaven
    13. Land Of The Free

You know folks I have been hunting without missing a year of it for about 35 years. I am an avid waterfoul hunting enthusiast and bowhunter as well. My FAVORITE type of hunting however is small game with small bored shotguns like my favorite 20 gauge. It was purchased by my Grandfather out of a J.C. Pennys catalogue in the 1960’s, when department stores sold guns.

I’ll always remember MY first gun purchase. I was 13 and I earned money on my paper route to buy my first Marlin model 60 tubefeeder .22 rimfire rifle. See Marlin was heavily sold by K Mart before Wal Mart ever got popular in my area growing up.
