One album and two singles into a career may be a little early to go throwing around "the next best thing" but it's not stopping me. And while there are certainly a few bands you could say that about, not many have experienced the radio play and success The Damn Quails already have. Both of their singles "Fools Gold" and "So So Long," went Top 5 on the Texas charts. Last week the guys stopped by Radio Texas, LIVE! unannounced, but it was a welcomed surprise.

Being a new band, these boys from Oklahoma were understandably unsure how they'd be received, but are happy with how they are. Front man Bryon White says, "It's catchin' on real, real good we were real surprised  when "Fool's Gold" did as well as it did... and to have the follow up doing better is all we'd ever want."

The Damn Quails love the music they play. And why not? They have a distinct, even refreshing sound that folks are really digging -- that always makes it easier to love, right? And when I saw them in concert they did not disappoint one bit. They sound just as good, even better live.

Simply put, The Damn Quails are damn good.
