It's quite a special day in the Swampland. Today we begin our monthly series of digital music compilations. and every month we will be offering you the GRITZ reader a FREE download of new music from many of the artists you read about here in GRITZ.
The first "Gritz Stone Ground & Southern" compilation features a mixture of legendary Southern rockers along with the very best of the new breed of artists. Tommy Talton, best known for his work as co-founder of the Capricorn Records band Cowboy during the 1970's, played alongside Duane Allman and backed Gregg Allman on his famous "Laid Back" Tour in '74. Tommy's current band is amazing. Tommy Crain was the guitarist for The Charlie Daniels Band for over 15 years, co-writing hits like "The Devil Went Down to Georgia." Crain now proudly features Jack Hall (Wet Willie) in his band. Georgia's Doc Holliday has been rocking the world since 1980, and they show no signs of slowing up. The truly legendary Bonnie Bramlett (Delaney & Bonnie) joins Gritz-man Michael Buffalo Smith on a country duet, featuring her unmistakable vocal power. And then there is up and coming country singer Amanda Martin, the excellent South Carolina band Silver Travis, country rocking Preacher Stone, Florida country rockers Rebel Syndicate, Louisiana swamp rocker Tom Coerver, North Carolina's husband and wife rock band Garrett and a great tune from Michael Allman, son of the legendary Gregg Allman. Gritz is happy to present this free sampling of the artists we write about. a It's our gift to you.
