Whenever the staff at Country’s Chatter is looking for some real country music, we never have to look far. Our thoughts turn quickly to artists who have really remained true to who they are; artists who know what country music is – and still sing it! One of those artists is Moe Bandy. It doesn’t matter which day you decide to drop by our office, you just might hear Moe Bandy coming out of the speakers on our walls. Being the fans we are, we were excited to learn that Moe has a new CD coming out on July 29, 2016. The album, Lucky Me, also has a few songs that feature other country greats like The Oak Ridge Boys, Ricky Skaggs, and Riders in the Sky. Below is the press release we received about the upcoming album. And, it includes a few show dates, too!
[Press Release] Country traditionalist Moe Bandy, known for dozens of chart-toppers like “I Cheated Me Right Out of Her,” “Bandy the Rodeo Clown” and “Americana,” will release LUCKY ME July 29. LUCKY ME, Bandy’s first studio album in 10 years, features memorable collaborations with The Oak Ridge Boys, Riders In The Sky and Ricky Skaggs. Click here to pre-order LUCKY ME.
The Texas singer with twin fiddles and steel guitar in his band continues to keep Texas-style honky tonk music alive with his latest studio album. The Oak Ridge Boys join Bandy on the fiery heartbreak “Hell Stays Open” and twangy, steel-guitar pinged “A Place To Hang My Hat.” Bandy features Ricky Skaggs’ signature bluegrass flare on the “The Rarest Flowers” while Riders In The Sky bring Western wit and charm on “Long Lived The Cowboy” and “That Horse That You Can’t Ride.”
“I am so honored to have had the opportunity to work with such talented musicians,” Bandy said. “These artists are people that I’ve admired for a very long time. I hope my fans enjoy listening to this record as much as I did recording it.”
Whether in the studio or traveling the world performing, Bandy keeps one of the busiest schedules in the business. Some of his noteworthy accomplishments include: 10 No. 1 Hits, 40 Top Ten Hits, 66 Chart Hits, 5 Gold Albums, ACM Song of The Year, ACM most Promising Male Vocalist of the Year, American Video of the year, ACM and CMA Duet of the Year.
