Bad Religion’s Greg Graffin Discovers Country Roots On Millport

Honesty. Authenticity. Integrity. Three chords and the truth. These are words and phrases are often associated with true country music. They are also often used to describe punk rock.

You’ll drink and maybe get lucky, and...

Aaron Watson Gets Nostalgic On New Single Outta Style

Releasing a country album that hits the top of the charts is not an easy task, especially, when you are outside of Music Row’s comfort zone and get absolutely no mainstream airplay. In 2015, only Jason Isbell, Blackberry Smoke and Aaron Watson reached such heights under those not so ideal conditions. While all three albums were celebrated by Red Dirt and Americana fans alike, it’s important to note that Aaron Watson’s The Underdog was...
