Gunnar & The Grizzly Boys Killed It
First, a big "thank you" to the Wearhouse for their hospitality. It was my first time taking in a show at their place. I'd been there for lunch a couple times. All their staff was very helpful and courteous. I'm really looking forward to 95 Rock's ongoing partnership and being part of more shows there.
The boys played hard last night. Hard work's not anything new for these guys. During the last two summers, Gunnar & The Grizzly Boys played dates across the Midwest and festivals as far away as Texas, Florida, and Nevada, opening shows for Colt Ford, Kid Rock and Florida Georgia Line and many others. Fans everywhere are reacting when radio stations played “Standard American”. They saved their hit for the end of the set and for good reason, they killed it. Another highlight was their cover of Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison." It was was a great show and there's no question the skill set is in place for these guys to get to the next level. It's just a matter of time.
While hanging out with the guys before the show, the topic of Country Jam came up. They love doing festivals and said "we'll do whatever it takes to be here for that show." I agreed to get with festival management and do all I can to help make that happen. If we're not successful in getting back here any sooner, they'll be here for County Jam in June. Kenny Chesney, one of the festival headliners, is a fan of the band.
