Hey, you sparkling sunfish! You must be here because you support Girls Rock Columbia. Heck, yeah! My buddy, Austin Lucas, is a fabulous songwriter from Indiana, and a wonderful supporter of the GRC cause. He’s going to play a house concert in Columbia and a portion of the reservations go to GRC. Win win! *** Reservations […]
As most of y’all know, our friend, Chris Porter, passed away in a terrible car wreck while on tour (along with touring partner, Mitch Vandenburg, and survived by drummer, Adam Nurre). I’ve been going through my old hard drives to the early days of this show, when it was a daily feature on select country […]

Decided to do a quick podcast update from my 3 favorites at AmericanaFest 2016. Lots more video to come, but here’s a taste of my favorite band that I did not previously know: Ladies Gun Club (Sally Jaye/Sarah Roberts). I also dug a #CFRalumni band that I had never seen play live and the band […]
Allen Thompson Band‘s new album, Brace Yourself, is still kept under top-secret guard, but the stories leading to the title seem surreal. Thompson and band mate, Clint Maine, both broke their backs in separate accidents within a month of each other. The following year helped them expand their sound and get weirder, as they describe. […]
Country Fried Rock alum, Scott Low, feels like he is finally getting life right. Since we featured his (former) band, Efren, years ago, Low has released several records and toured relentlessly, but his personal life has had enough upheaval for several lifetimes. Lucky for us, Low writes about all of it. On his upcoming album, […]
I’d listen to Joey Kneiser and Kelly Smith sing the alphabet — on repeat. Their videos are legendary, too. Grab his latest record here on Amazon or iTunes. Did you hear our interview with Kneiser a few years ago?
Not really — all kinds of dogs. We have a new podcast with #CFRalumni Humming House coming soon. Here’s their fun dog-filled video that we discuss in our new interview. Enjoy! Humming House is on tour. Grab their music here on Amazon or iTunes. #humminghouse
Town Mountain‘s new album, Southern Crescent, will be out on April Fools’ Day 2016 on Todd Snider’s new record label, Lo Hi. We previously featured this IBMA Award winning band just prior to the release of Leave the Bottle. When we talked for this podcast at Revelator Coffee in Nashville during AmericanaFest, the band had […]
Country Fried Rock featured Lincoln Durham several years ago, and he’s only gotten better. Here’s “Creeper” off his latest album, Revelations of a Mind Unraveling, available on Amazon and iTunes.
Reed Turchi last appeared on Country Fried Rock with his self-titled band, Turchi. His solo release calls in several musician friends, and is even more influenced by his time with Ardent (where he recorded, as well) and Italian bluesman, Adriano Viterbini (who also plays on the album). Speaking in Shadows rocks, but Turchi recently recorded […]
Kevin Gordon‘s latest album, Long Gone Time, continues his thoughtful, critical examination of reconciling your love for family with deeply held incompatible beliefs. Country Fried Rock previously featured Gordon following his album, Gloryland. Gordon again recorded with his friend and frequent guitar player, Joe V. McMahan, and funded the album with a personal twist on […]
