The band is sadly, now retired but they had a big impact on people. Some say that they are one of the best bands in Texas music and I agree.
I came across mbbw in Galveston, TX on July 4th, 2015. Oh heck yes, 5 stars! I will recommend grabbing the opportunity to see them if ever they are near you. Check out their web site for dates & places. They will be at a place I know in just 2 weeks! I will be there!
Luke Robinson's new single "Roses On The Radio" is my new favorite song! It's about growing up in a small town listening to Guns N Roses! I heard he has a new album coming out later this year and I can't wait. Going to see him in concert with Gene Watson July 4th. The last one I saw was GREAT!
I miss this band so much. Forever one of my favorites! I'm still rocking all your music Steve!
Just heard her latese When a Heart Breaks C.D. WOW I want more !! Big things comming her way.
THERE'S NOT MANY ARTIST THAT HAVE THAT TRUE COUNTRY SOUND ANYMORE THAT CAN DELIVER A STORY LIKE SHE DOES THAT MAKES YOU BELIEVE SHE'S BEEN THOUGH EVERY WORD OF IT. ABSOLUTELY , ON OF THE BEST TALENTS OF OUR DAY.
I can not believe all the mixed reviews. I think some people may be brainwashed with to much clear channel radio. Cory is a legend people. I have been a fan since 1996. I would like to see Lloyd Maines produce him again. Overall all his albums should be cherished like a coat from the cold. Keep pickin hoss.
The first time you hear Michael O'Neal, it may take you by surprise: he's a friendly, stocky guy with no signs of "brilliant artist" in sight...but then again, what great artist dresses/looks the part anyhow? In his broken, yet tuneful voice coupled with a unique picking style he delivers songs about people that EVERYONE knows. His songs can be short, some are longer, but the point ALWAYS gets across. It is fascinating to watch him live, but his records are things of intense beauty. A lot of what he writes is sad, but it's all rooted in the truth and those who long for the halcyon days of childhood can especially relate to the vein he works in.
Al Barlow is one of the most gifted songwriters around and it's easy to see why some of his more famous friends (e.g. REK and Todd Snider) claim his influence. Al deals in universal truths but still has an obtuse, interesting way of seeing the world. There's something in Al Barlow's songs for everyone: from the young to the old, saints to sinners. You'll find yourself laughing out loud at some of his subject material but touched by what he's trying to say...and singing his lyrics later at the top of your lungs.
This is the long-awaited debut from this solid, energetic, eclectic band and it does not disappoint. From tender ballads to foot-stompers, you will hear something different each and every time you listen to it. The only complaint I have is that this CD is not long enough. What are you waiting for? Listen to the samples and then order this CD. Even better, go catch these guys live!!
