The Wicked, Twisted Road Leads to Atlanta

Back at work today after a long but fantastic weekend in Atlanta. Some photos of the concert haved been added tonight. Working on a story of the Braves game and a lengthy post about our night with Reckless Kelly at Smith's Olde Bar. Their music defies categorization-call it "roots-rock," "alt-country," or as they call it, "hick-rock," this group led by Willy and Cody Braun from Stanley, Idaho, now based in Austin, Texas is the finest band I have ever heard-and I am a hardcore music fan from wayback. Not only talented, they are the most unassuming and greatest bunch of guys you'll ever meet. If you've got an appreciation for impeccable musicianship and vocals matched with lyrics that are truly magical, these guys are all you need. Their latest,
Wicked Twisted Road, from the opening lines of the title cut and first song, to the last strains of the instrumental reprise will send chills down your spine. These guys are simply awesome-we love 'em, see them as often as possible all over the country and have been fortunate to get to spend some time talking with them. They hooked us up royally in Atlanta! Thanks guys for everything! We'll see you soon down the road. Back tomorrow with the full story.

David,
You were my "music guru" when you were an asst.d.a. in winston salem. When I started reading your blog on a daily basis and you mentioned Reckless Kelly, I went out and bought Wicked Twisted Road. I trusted your opinion and now I own 4 cd's by this GREAT band. Keep up the great work.
