Music Premiere: Prophets and Outlaws – “Little Bit of Love”

We’ve got some feel good for you this Friday to keep you warm on what looks to be a historically cold (and snowy) weekend in Texas… Those suited up, soul shopping gents from Big D, better known as Prophets and Outlaws, dropped a new single and video with a little bit of help from friends George Dunham and the OG himself, Pat Green. According to lead man Matt Boggs, “Little Bit of Love” was conceived when Pat Green called his buddy George with the hook…from the golf course. The P&O boys and PG share a common friendship through Dunham, the

Music Premiere: Saints Eleven – “This Town”

Heralding from Dallas, the boys from Saints Eleven have been gaining steam, roping in the 2019 Texas Country Music Association award for “Country Band of The Year.” There’s definitely a lot of country in the Saints Eleven sound, but there is also a hell of a lot of rock ‘n’ roll.

It’s retro, yet fresh at the same

Over the last twenty years, few acts in this scene have championed honky tonk country as fervently as Eleven Hundred Springs. The band’s sound has always been pure and honest, managing to breath life into familiar country themes through straightforward, good songwriting and staunchly sticking to their roots. Given that every country song has been written at this point, you would think it would all sound rote, but Matt Hillyer and the gang continue to inject enough fun and originality into the genre to keep the neon shining, the beer flowing, and the dance floor packed. In 2017, Hillyer and
