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:
- Welcome home
- Rolling Down The Road
- The Hangover Song
- Swan Song
- God’s Wounds
- Better And Better
- Fly Me To Heaven
- 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.
Well, I sure appreciate it, man
How many Blood Tubs are there total?
It’s hard to say, but we are a national organization that supports and promotes the second Amendment of the US Constitution for all citizens. Even our antics that may appear somewhat reckless, are grounded in the fundamentals of firearms safety, muzzle awareness and trigger discipline.
Yeah normally I would frown at the beer can stunt, but I know y’all are good people. I watch comments.. all your group knows their firearms. I don’t call them guns.
Yeah, we police each other quite well. Incompetence or any kind of safety compromise isn’t tolerated well when you’re shooting beer cans off each other heads haha
Cool man THANKS I think this piece will turn out nicely!
I’m super excited to see it. You going to be at CSMF Fall this year?
I sponsored it again yes. But I can’t come Thursday. I didn’t plan to be this involved with Tumbleweed.
TWO KC trips was not planned, but he is offering me an offer I couldn’t refuse.
Well that’s good, I won’t make CSMF Thursday but I’ll be there Friday-Saturday. And of course, I’m sure we’ll see each there at Muddy Roots.
I’ll be there at Muddy in fact I had to hire help. That big of a festival I cannot do alone. Especially as hot as it usually is. No way I can cover that many bands.
Yeah, this years quite the line up
YES. Blew my mind. I got 800 for merch put up, a lot of those bands don’t come to Nashville
Whoa man, that’s no joke
