Mike and The Moonpies Headline Friday Night at ETX State Fair
On Friday (Sept. 20) one of the best bands in country music head to The Rose Capital of the World to play The East Texas State Fair. That's right, friends, Mike and the Moonpies are coming to Tyler, TX
If you missed it, Mike and the Moonpies dropped an orchestra-infused-country-music bomb on us in early August. The Moonpies' sixth studio album, Cheap Silver and Solid Country Gold, is a masterpiece.
The project was recorded at Abbey Road Studios (yes, that Abbey Road Studios), rounded out with backing from the London Symphony Orchestra, and produced by Adam Odor, and deserving of such an iconic production studio and production.
The Moonpies' last studio album Steak Night At The Prairie Rose was one of 2018’s best reviewed releases landing on numerous “Best Of” lists including nods from Rolling Stone Country for “40 Best Country and Americana Albums of 2018,” and “25 Best Country and Americana Songs of 2018.” Saving Country Music named them the No. 1 Best Live Performance of 2018.
This may be the only way Mike and the boys could've topped Steak Night, and by God they certainly took every possible step to do it. They pulled out all the stops. These guys are next level. And a quick aside, if you still haven't heard their cover of Fastball's "The Way" released in late spring, check it out.
These Texas boys are doing Country Music right; woodwinds, brass, strings and all. Don't miss 'em at the fair.
