I would like to think it is my job as a writer and music advocate to bring fresh new music and faces to your attention, and with my weekly feature, #BandsYouShouldKnow, that's exactly what I hope to do.

If you're looking for a modern-day Willie and Merle, other than the real thing of course, look no further than the Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash. This Austin-based band has been stirring trouble in the Americana, outlaw scene for over a decade.

They would like you to note that "The Bastard Sons never were, and never will be, a Johnny Cash tribute band," although they were given personal permission to use the band's name by Johnny Cash himself.
