Music, Hear This Oldies and Goodies

Oldies and Goodies

With music that's equal parts bar rock, power-pop, and classic country, an Old 97's show defies you not to have a good time. The guitars are always just twangy enough, the lovelorn hooks irresistible. Hence, the Dallas act's long-held status…

The House of Tudor

Down south, in the sprawling mall where A&R is king, mentioning your favorite country band still requires a 20-word disclaimer and a complimentary white wine spritzer if you are to avoid the slightly-distracted-cross-eyed-L.A. semistare. Otherwise, the music professional with whom…
