    I saw them in Richmond few months ago and he was definitely very wasted but not nearly that bad. He did disappear from the stage for an entire song

    Looks about right but he sounded 100x worse than I've ever seen.

    Btw, the new Randy Rogers album is pretty solid.

    I’m really into this Ryan Bingham album. Jingle and Go is a great song

    Because he’ll probably die if he doesn’t drink for that long.

    They could be legendary if he could get his drinking even half under control.

    Evan needs some serious help and if not touring is the first step, good. Go take a year off to clean up your life and come back

    Agreed. I was surprised and honestly a little annoyed when they announced some new shows the other week.

    Maybe I’m missing out but it doesn’t seem like there’s many great new red dirt bands. I started popping through the Texas Regional chart and everything sounds like top 40 country from 6 years ago.

    Joshua Ray Walker has been a great find for 2019 but man going through the list has been depressing. Chad Cooke Band sounds like one song from being country top 40, or maybe I’m just wildly out of touch.

    Rightly or wrongly, to me it seems like the onset of Americana kind of swallowed up all the momentum Red Dirt seem to have 5-10 years ago

    I'm always reading up on the Saving County Music blogs and they're constantly hyping Mike and the Moonpies as the next group to step into Turnpikes shoes.

    I find it highly fucking unlikely that these shoes will be stepped into for a while, but I wanted to ask you boys--ive never really been able to get into Mike and the Moonpies. What would be the songs you would recommend from this group for a newbie to win him over?

    They’re fine, I like what they do. They aren’t remotely close to TT.

    Hopefully Evan gets sober or levels off or something.

    If he hasn’t already he needs a long ass chat with Jason Boland.

    Yeah, when I read about M&TMP newest record, I was all about it. A country band playing with a symphony at Abbey Road? Sign me up.

    Then I listened to it and got disappointed. Something about their sound is so...slick. The lead singer has no edge whatsoever.

    It’s unfair to Mike and the Moonpies to try and push them into the void left (for now) by TT. Big fan of the Moonpies, but what they do is different than TT.

    He recorded this before his breakdown or whatever we're calling it, but just out today. It's really good, which just makes it all the more frustrating.

    Got here and saw the last 20 minutes of their set. They were just ok but the bassist was wearing a pair of red beats headphones and that might be the most douchey thing I've seen in awhile.
