Justin Stone Wow. I LOVE THIS ALBUM. I make a daily long drive to work and the one benefit is listening to music. I've been listening to this album every day for weeks. I'll put something else on and then be like, well, wait, it's not Country Westerns. Every song is good. So many welcome turns and changes. In each listen different songs jump out as a favorite. Great lyrics, killer hooks. The rhythm section is a tight & melodic dream. The folks also seem sweet. A lot of nice spirit & energy here. Get it! Favorite track: Gentle Soul.

vlock1 Snotty guitars, raspy vocals and great songs. Anyone who digs the DBTs or early Wilco needs this one. Favorite track: Anytime.

Country Westerns is a three-piece rock band from Nashville that sounds nothing like its name. Drummer Brian Kotzur (Trash Humpers, Silver Jews) and singer-songwriter-guitarist Joseph Plunket (The Weight, Gentleman Jesse) began working on songs together in 2016, after bonding over the shared desire to be in a band in a town full of solo artists and guns-for-hire. Following a couple of years writing and playing shows with varying lineups, Sabrina Rush (State Champion) joined the band as bassist. The now complete Country Westerns recorded their debut album in New York and Nashville, encouraged by friend and producer Matt Sweeney. Plunket’s raspy bravado and subtle twang, his insistent 12-string guitar riffs, Kotzur’s dynamic and metronomic drumming, and Rush’s harmonic bass playing create hyper catchy rock songs, with lyrics that bend towards poetry and punk rock sneer in equal measure. This album was released June 26, 2020.
