So so long adam dunn
I sure don't know anything about baseball. But I know a Damn Quails song when I hear one. While White Sox player Adam Dunn was being interviewed on ESPN about his go-ahead three-run homer in the eighth inning to win a game over Cleveland last week, you can hear "So So Long," The Damn Quails current single a song blasting loud in the background. You can see the interview and hear TDQ's ESPN debut here.
reckless kelly give fans a bonus
Reckless Kelly released a new single this week, with a twist. The single, “Pennsylvania Avenue” contains a B-side with another song, titled “Back In The U.S.A.” -- so its like a two for one special. You can listen to samples of both songs as well as order the set on iTunes for only $1.98.

Have you recently thought to yourself, self… I wonder how Bart Crow’s new CD “Dandelion” was made? Well, wonder no more! Bart has released a 20 minute documentary that shows the ENTIRE process.
