You make more money from gigs than you do from Cds.

And why shouldn`t you make money from something you enjoy , i call that the ideal job.

its not about impressign people, the whole point was that swim said it doesnt matter if there is a fan-base, which is rediculous.

word up.

also if you're in NC we're playing three/four new jams at these places:
Jan. 6th @ some house in charlotte (check the myspace for deets)
Jan.7th @ The Flat Iron, Greensboro, NC w/ shaking hands w/ danger & descolada
Jan.20th @ The Turducken House, Greenville, NC w/ the sibs, the breathing, and more.

all next to free. check out our myspace for additional information.
I said a widened fan base isn't relevant.

97% of country rock is done in bad taste, with the lyrics and music being incredibly corny and generic. I GUESS you could say im not a fan.

No. Rockabilly is like Elvis and Country Rock is well turn on your radio and find a country station that doesn't play the classics.

You people obviously have no idea what you're talking about. Toby Keith is country rock? HAHAHA all that crap on the radio is pop country. 4 pages and no mention of Gram Parsons or The Flying Burrito Brothers the founders of country rock... SAD! Country Rock is bands like The Drive-By Truckers, Uncle Tupelo, Gram Parsons, The Flying Burrito Brothers, even alot of the Eagles stuff is country rock.
