Jason Boland & The Stragglers

Release Date: 2007-07-11
They’re regarded by some as modern-day outlaws, others as the vanguard of the Red Dirt movement, and still others as the second coming of Waylon Jennings — spend time at one of their blazing shows and you’ll be a believer of at least one. Jason Boland walks the line, merging authentic vintage-country sensibility with refreshing originality. October 31, 2006, marked two milestones for Boland and The Stragglers — the eight-year anniversary of their first performance, and the release of their highly anticipated new record The Bourbon Legend. $10-20.
