Did you hear about Mucklewain? A brand new festival they held in Harriman, Tennessee, in August. Unbelievable SlackerCountry line-up (Steve Earle, Todd Snider, Scott Miller, Lucero, the Yayhoos, Jason Ringenberg, Kevin Kinney, Daddy – Will Kimbrough & Tommy Womack, Cory Branan, Allison Moorer, Webb Wilder, Mic Harrison, and more). We didn’t get to go but Brother Dave and Mary Ann did and graciously sent in this review for us.
Those of you who have followed Scott Miller’s career since his days with The V-Roys probably did what we did and grabbed his latest CD at your first opportunity. It’s a worthy successor to his previous albums with the Commonwealth: "Thus Always to Tyrants" and the not quite as strong but still good "Upside Downside."
