All of our readers have heard me say that if I ever have to leave Tennessee, I’m moving to Texas. There is a reason for that. Texas, we’ve discovered over the years, not only has some of the most talented country music singers, musicians, songwriters and bands anywhere … but they have their own kind of radio stations, their own country music charts … and something more. They have a different brand of country music. If you didn’t know that, listen to “Coming Back Around”, the new one from Saints Eleven.
I wasn’t familiar with this band, but when I learned that their song was premiering on The Boot today, I ran right over to listen. Have you ever been to a … well, what I call a honky-tonk, a club, a saloon (if you will). The kind of place with sawdust on the floor, cowboy boots on every foot, and the live music usually consists of a few guitars, some drums, a banjo if you’re lucky, and a little steel. And, everyone is dancing. If you are getting any picture of that in your mind, what I think you are seeing is Saints Eleven at work.
When you go to their website, you see a great picture of band members, Jeff Grossman, Vocals/Rythm/Lead/LapSteel guitar; Jeffrey Mosley, Bass guitar; and Alex Shepherd, Drums. Listen while you’re looking, and you will hear their great rendition of Buck Owens “Cryin’ Time”. If that doesn’t want to make you pack up and go to Texas, it is for sure going to make you want to get up and dance! They follow that one with “Delta Dawn” and you just never want to leave that website.
In the “About” section on Facebook, they list their genre as Country, Texas Country, Red Dirt Country.That’s exactly what it is! With a nice mix of bluegrass,and a little southern-rock. But, what we heard on their website also gave us a great taste of their ‘more traditional’ country side.
Jeff Grossman wrote the new song, “Coming Back Around,” and you know right away when you listen that he isn’t just telling us a story, he is telling us a story he lived through. It was written from personal experience, and he shared with The Boot, “You can’t change the past. What’s done is done,” Grossman adds. “The thing you can do is learn from those mistakes and just try to be a better person.” [Source]
