Your Favorite Fool

There is even a wicked George Jones duet with  Kelly Hogan ("Golden Ring").

This disc scoots and swings, swoons and sighs, and leaves a greasy $20 bill on the bar as a tip. Perfect music to keep time to by banging a longneck on the bar.

Full Description

We've heard that there's this thing called "emo" that's popular these days. Well, Rex and the Boys play emo in it's most pure and classic form; hardcore honky-tonk heartbreak. And with Pete Anderson (Dwight Yoakam's right hand man) at the controls for this release, they deliver their most perfect, polished effort.

This is the kind of straight-up, chasers-are-for-wimps honky tonk you just can't get anymore. Sure, the glitzy Nashville pretenders pay wistful lip service to stuff like this on those hokey awards shows (usually in between video homages to Rascal Flatts and a lifetime achievement to Brooks and Dunn), but you have to go to the clubs to hear Rex and the Boys bang it out for real. Spot on songwriting and sawdust smart musicianship make this a grand listen.

There is even a wicked duet with  Kelly Hogan on the George Jones classic "Golden Ring").

This disc scoots and swings, swoons and sighs, and leaves a greasy $20 bill on the bar as a tip. Perfect music to keep time to by banging a longneck on the bar.
