Check out this awesome review from Al Gilmore at Chordblossom, it made my day! 🙂 Playing your own brand of country music in pubs, clubs & dive bars across the country, to people who think think Nathan Carter & Ritchie Remo are the be all & end all of the genre can be a real struggle at times, so a review like this is a breath of fresh air & massive boost, hats of to the reviewers & the people who take the time to listen, cheers! :)🤘 Check Out The Actual Review Here Watch Buy
