    Hailing from San Diego, this group crafts songs that make one think of the open road, lonesome trails and the kind of heartache that you've just gotta sing about to conquer. Lead singer Mark Stuart has a voice that's big and rich, a baritone buttery and pure. When he wails on "Seven Steps" you just may want to grab the nearest person and do some of that country dancing you've clicked past when it's been shown on TNN.

    Their current CD, "Walk Alone" (on Ultimatum Music) has twang aplenty. On "Interstate Cannonball," the band cranks up the pace in a tune about the highways, and on "Walk Alone," Stuart sounds poignantly resolute in this declaration of solitude.

    Merle Haggard chose these fellers to be his opening act in 1999 and they won the San Diego Reader's Choice award for best country band that year as well. The Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash were also invited by Willie Nelson to play at his famous Fourth of July picnic. On April 11th they're playing at Rodeo Bar, a fine place to grab some southwestern grub and a cold one or three (watch out for their powerful margaritas) and soak up the fine tunes on offer from these California dudes.
