Let it be known that I love "fiddle picking, toe tapping, my wife is divorcing me and all I got was this bottle of whiskey" country music (I am from Texas after all). Judge me if you must, but I hold firm to the belief that this music warms the soul like nothing else. Enter The Black Lillies, a five piece ensemble hailing from the back roads of Knoxville, Tennessee. This bandcamp find proves that the Americana revival is going strong which means that there must be other music lovers out there who share my enthusiasm for well crafted, lyric driven, raspy-voiced tunes. Whether or not any of those music lovers follow my little ole blog remains to be seen, but even if you believe that this genre just isn't your cup of tea I urge you to press play and give The Black Lillies a whirl. Let them persuade you into joining us on the dark side.....we have whiskey.
