Hey Muckrakes......what kind of music do you play?
-By DAVE JACKSON

As funny as this may sound, I get this question a lot and I'm never sure how to answer.

Keep in mind, I hate labeling/genre'ing music. I think it cheapens what most band's are doing.....but for the sake of giving someone an idea of what we do play.

Americana
Alt-Country
Twangrass
Ya'llternative
Dirty south, corn-squeezins Americana
Rockin'-Roots
Bluegrass inspired twang-n-roll
Twangcore
American Blue Collar Grassy Rock
Folk-n-Roll

This can on and on.....

If you didn't notice, I stayed away from the word "country". That word has been so bastardized by the likes of Kenny Ches.....(fuck, I can't even type his name)......let's just say country radio. It's rather unfortunate seeing as there is some great country music out there.

Let me ask you this; if you've ever heard us, describe "our" music! How would you tell the uninitiated what our sound is?
