Music City Doughboys EP Release ShowBluegrass
Long before Old Crow Medicine Show ever got a Ryman crowd gyrating and hippie-flailing in the aisles, there was a time when the idea of a with-it, below-40 audience partying to old-time music seemed a little far-fetched. But we all know how that’s turned out. The Music City Doughboys are hoping they can light a similar fire under Western swing. It wasn’t quite two years ago that two of Nashville’s next-generation fiddlers for hire, Billy McClaran and Brandon Godman, rounded up a handful of their fellow sidemen to form an outfit in the Light Crust Doughboys tradition. They’re finally putting out their self-titled debut album, and the dozen-song set is no revivalist exercise. McClaran and Godman have a youthful zeal, singing and playing twin fiddle runs, harmonizing with exciting precision, and writing songs that seamlessly merge classic and contemporary points of view. Popular music history has proven over and over that that kind of spark is enough to start something.
