: Wow after all this time screwing around in the studio, practicing with this other band that ended up going NOWHERE!,(over a year) I put my add up on harmony central and got a paying gig in one week. what a great deal. Now, I grew up with Sabbath and Maiden, but now I am playing Mearle Haggard and Willie Nelson. I think its cool. a big change for me. Country...who'd a thought! anyway, I dont really know many of the songs, and Im gonna be hunting up there on stage...but I love the pressure! tonight is the first gig......give me a beer!!!! late john

Congrats! I'm another rocker who was talked into joining a country band 5 years ago, thinking I would hate it. And 5 years later I'm still in the band! I've had a good time playing country (much to my surprise) and have had some good opportunities (touring Japan and Korea for 3 straight years) that I never got in all the rock bands I played in. I'm planning on starting a rock band just to jam for fun, but I like the musicians and the gigs with the country band, so I'm going to stay with it as my main band. Good luck, and keep rockin' you call it with country. ;)
