Hypothetical Musical Draft

Few events that are of such little substance receive as much attention as the NFL Draft.  A parade of measurements, pseudo-science and unpredictability mesh together to make what should be a relatively simple process much too complicated.  But, it’s all for TV, so who can blame them?

What insane pick will Jerry Jones make?  Where will Johnny Football land?  Will Mel Kiper’s hair move?  These are the things we want to know.  This all got us to thinking.  What if Texas/Red Dirt/Americana music held a draft?  Who would go first?  Would it be a frontman?  Musician? Songwriter? Tour manager? Producer? Booking agent?

If you were starting a band, much like an expansion team, who would you draft first and why?

    With the #1 pick in the draft, Chris King selects Cody Foote.

    If you don’t have a good bass player, shit falls apart.

    Cody Canada, he’s simply the best. Guy can do it all, write, sing, and play.

    Luke Bryan.

    I would send the band on tour in Antarctica and not allow U.S. radio stations to play the music.

    For his 1st round pick, Hooper selects Jeff Plankenhorn.

    Gonna be tough to beat the best. He INVENTED an instrument.

    If you don’t choose either BJ Barham for vocals to begin your band or Lincoln Durham to be your whole band, you’re probably wrong.

    Chris Thile plays on a different level. Would be too hard to pass on him. Then hope I could get Shinyribs as a steal in the second round.

    I would take Cody Braun because how can you not take “The most versatile thing to come out of Idaho since the potato”?

    I’d be pretty tempted by Jay Nazz. He lays down a mean beat and keeps the groove. Maybe I’ve had too many bad drummer experiences, but I kinda think that’s the first step in building a band.

    I got one of those late rounders that ends up being a stud:
    Josh Serrato formerly of 6MB, the boy can play.

    No one has picked Lloyd Maines yet? This is like the 84 NBA draft, and all of you picked Sam Bowie.

    I gotta pick Jon Knudson formerly of the Damn Quails. Great utility player capable of playing at least 7 positions as well as being a producer so he is basically a player/coach.

    I had Warren Haynes all the way until I saw the Texas/Red Dirt/Americana stipulation. Instead, I will now pick Seth James. He’s the closest 🙂

    Gotta pull Josh Weathers out of retirement. Over the top vocals and can play some guitar too.

    I would draft Scott Davis because that dude is legit. Then I would draft the Chicago Bears 1985 offensive line for their contribution in the Super bowl Shuffle. Then I would exhume Waylon Jennings, though I’m not sure why. Next, got to go with my man Chris Knight because, spoiler alert, this band is about writing murder ballads. BUT, it’s a real niche type murder ballad band specializing in writing songs about the annihilation of Brantley Gilbert. Last pick, Randy Travis for church fighting and booze breath. #blessed

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
