Throughout history, many great things have come from Texas.
Tex-Mex. The Schlitterbahn. Whataburger. Chuck Norris.
And a recent addition to the list: the Josh Abbott Band.
Hands down the best comparison drawn between a woman and anything, ever.
The Josh Abbott Band doesn’t rest on merely referencing Southern landmarks in their lyrics; they paint a much heartier picture. Listening to “Road Trippin‘” actually makes it feel 10 degrees warmer outside and gives me the urge to wear sunglasses regardless of what time of day it may be.
“I’ll Sing About Mine” offers a refreshing take on what much of mainstream country music has forgotten about – real life.
“When the radio’s on, I just don’t understand, because tractor’s ain’t sexy and working is hard for small town people like me.”
Good news for Southerners living off the beaten path – the band is making its rounds to Illinois, Colorado and Kansas this July.
