Well, after years of hard work and perseverance, the band has made some changes. Gone are the vintage clothes and the hyphen in the name. Also gone from the new This Is BR549 are the band's trademark classic country covers.
But some things remain. Still present is the band's ability to turn a cover tune into something brand new, as in their takes on Nick Lowe's "Play That Fast Thing (One More Time)" and Anne Murray's "A Little Good News." The band's originals -- often the weakest link on their previous albums -- have made a leap in quality. While still focusing on the rough and rowdy themes found in traditional honky tonk, writers Gary Bennett and Chuck Mead have improved their lyrics.
By all accounts, BR549 have grown up a bit.
BR549 plays Thurs., Oct. 11, at the Cotton Club.
Beck and Alabama Shakes...that's about it. I'm sure there's an unknown or two I would…
Well, this years Music Midtown sucks!
I'm pretty sure he was 19.
3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
