CMT Edge interviewed Hard Working Americans (feat. Todd Snider, Dave Schools of Widespread Panic, and Neal Casal) about their new album, which features a spot-on cover of The Bottle Rockets' classic "Welfare Music."
Dave Schools says: "In the midst of all the post-grunge fluff and empty hard pop, [Bottle Rockets] were a breath of fresh air — something very American and real."
"Welfare Music" is one of many timeless American songs collected on the 2013 'Bottle Rockets/The Brooklyn Side' deluxe reissue.
The Ozark gang came by Bloodshot HQ and treated us to a spirited version of the TP classic "Learning to Fly," complete with mandolin solo, morale-filled chanting, shouting, and stomping, and Brian's spot-on Petty impression.
