It's been a while since we've had a new original album from one of the biggest names in Red Dirt, Stoney LaRue. In fact, 2005 was the last (and only) time we got a studio album from the talented Okie. But it must be noted that he has been able to build and sustain a very loyal and very big fan base purely on the greatness of his one studio album... AND amazing live albums and concerts.  Just in case you aren't up to date on your Stoney LaRue discography here's a brief (Oklahoma) breakdown --haha!

2002's 'Downtown' featured: Texas Moon, Feet Don't The Ground, Shot Full Of Holes

2005's 'The Red Dirt Album': Down In Flames, One Chord Song, Idabel Blues, Forever Young, Bluebird Wine, Solid Gone

2007's 'Live At Billy Bob's' gave us: Oklahoma Breakdown, We're Going Down The Road Feelin' Bad

2010's 'Acoustic Live': Which was remakes of classic songs --acoustic style.

Stoney called in to Radio Texas Live back in April to break the news about the then upcoming single 'Velvet' and to let us know when to expect the album, we also talked about facial hair --that seems to happen a lot in my interviews, it's dated but here's the audio.

Maybe the most anticipated album in Texas/Red Dirt history... Only six years after his first studio album... just four years after Billy Bob's, Stoney is back with his second studio album 'Velvet' out August 30th and we've got your chance to win it before you can legally download it just click anywhere purple --You've got till 10pm 8/27 --this Saturday night to get qualified, good luck!
