The latest album from these Oklahoma country-rockers is masterfully created, a homey blend of twangy guitar and twangier vocals, but it's the lyrics that really make an impact. In an interview with American Songwriter, frontman and songwriter Evan Felker explained that all of the songs on 2012's Goodbye Normal Street are inspired by the lives of "real people"—himself included—and all the disappointments, triumphs and heartache that regular ol' people encounter. From the complicated and often lonely reality of being deployed or having a relative in the military ("Southeastern Son," "Blue Star") to two people wrestling with the consequences of their affair (the excellent duet "Call a Spade a Spade"), Felker has proven he can spin a yarn with insight and sensitivity. Local bluegrass/folk six-piece Six Feet in the Pine will begin the night. (Kolbie Stonehocker, City Weekly)
