- DeSoto Magazine Interview
Two weeks ago, we got an out-of-the-blue email from DeSoto Magazine with a phone interview request. While we'd never heard of the magazine before, nor were we sure that this wasn't some prank an a-hole friend of our's would pull on us, we looked at each other and said, "Who cares! We've never been in ANY magazine before! Hell yeah!"
The next day came and so did the phone call from a Memphis number and a guy named Adam at DeSoto Magazine. (not an a-hole friend) Adam asked us questions- lots of questions-and when he was done asking, it dawned on us to ask him a question. The ONLY one that had been on our mind since receiving the email the day before.
In the most non-self-depricating way we could, we said:
"Uhh...how on earth did you ever hear of us? Because, ya know, uhhh, not many people have..."
Adam's answer completely surprised us.
He told us that he and the magazine's editor had caught one of our sets at the Florabama during the Frank Brown Songwriter's Festival back in November and that they'd loved it. We thought back on that show and remembered; bras hanging from rafters, bushwackers, and every kind of amazing character outlined in Toby Keith's, "I love this Bar"- but no reporters- (at least none dressed like Dick Tracy or squirrelly dudes dressed in 3-piece suits and fedoras, chain-smoking Pall Mall cigarettes, which is my preconceived vision of reporters, btw)
Anyway, the point of this seemingly pointless rambling is that, in our experience, the coolest things happen when we think no one's watching but we give it all we've got, regardless. 2014 was one helluva rollercoaster of a year for us with more lows than highs and that fact was sometimes easily forgotten. Thanks to Adam and his editor for reminding us of this and for giving us our first magazine interview!

A couple of weeks ago, we met the guys and gals from Somersessions in the upstairs of an old print shop in Somerset, KY. We swapped bad jokes, passed around water bottles full of apple pie moonshine and, eventually, they pressed the red 'record' buttons on their video cameras and we sat down to sing some songs.
Here's a video from that night of a brand new song called, "Runnin Into You".
