Surprised they couldn't get Luke Bryan to perform. Unless he's officially joining Florida Georgia Line.
But buckcherry rules tho
I LOVE that there is that one token female act and not even a major one.
I've got a semi relevant story. Today at a gas station in Lubbock, Texas, I was walking out to my pick up as two gaudy Mikel Knight vans pulled up. Guys got out and swarmed everybody there. One walked up to me, "Excuse me, sir, I've got a bet with my boss. He says you've never heard of him and I'm betting you have heard of him." He pointed back at the vans, that had the guys name and face plastered all over it, "You've heard of him, right, Mikel Knight, the maverick of country music?" I started to just tell him no and keep walking but decided to be honest. "There's a website called Farce the Music that makes fun of that stuff. I've read about him there." The guy completely deflated.
Bear, there are actually 2 females: Maggie Rose and Raelynn.Keith, that's hilarious. My wife had a similar experience with the Mikel Knight team a few months ago.
I guess Knight's obnoxious self promotion goes beyond the van. Bet they are required to do that at every truck stop. I first heard of him because I happened to pass him on the road. The van was so ridiculously gaudy, I have to admit I just had to google. Listened to a few seconds of a song. Pretty much what I expected.-emfrank
Yeah, the whole "I have a bet with my boss that you've heard of him" thing did not come off as in anyway spontaneous and unrehearsed. The thing that got me was that they had two vans, a bunch of guys, and no equipment trailer for the instruments. I felt bad for the guy and was in a hurry, but really wanted to ask who played the fiddle and which one played the steel guitar.
I ran into a van load of his clowns at a gas station in central Wisconsin last fall. When they asked if I knew who he was, I said no. They told me how great he was, and how he was the next big star. When I asked where he was playing, they said "Oh, the tour doesnt start till January!" My theory is that His career is like a live traveling infomercial, take a crap product, get a team of trained monkeys to pound the pavement, and sell as much to dummies as you can before they figure out its a piece of crap.I basically asked them if they played real music and the guy told me he was the next Colt Ford! I laughed and said I only listen to Red dirt/Texas, and classic country, and he didn't know what to say. when I told my daughters about my meeting them, they said "You should tell Trailer and Trigger about this!" They played Me some of his songs, and We only could stand about 20 seconds of any of them. He is a complete wannabe joke.
