New Artist Alert!

You know - I have really eased up on my iTunes purchases...given my new addiction to talk radio and all...I just don't buy music like I used to.

And I know what a travesty that is. If any of you know me, you know that my 80GB iPod is half full. HALF. Do you know how many songs that is?


You heard me.

Oh, and there's 3 movies and a few episodes of Work Out, Keeping Up With the Kardashians and Open Bar. So, it's not all music. Don't even wind me up about my reality TV. No judgement!

Needless to say, I'm much more selective* these days about the music I buy. And my Visa card thanks me. However, I have been eagerly anticipating this group's debut CD, as their single teased us months ago. Well, the album dropped this week - and I've got two words:


It's good - go to Wal-Mart or iTunes or somewhere legal to purchase it. You'll be so glad. It's not just country, not just southern rock. Definite crossover, but it's FIERCE.


If you want to 'audition' them first, visit them at their Official Website or their Official MySpace page.

Toma's Favorite Song Today: "Things People Say" by Lady A

*And by selective, I will tell you that this month's purchases have ONLY consisted of Amy Winehouse Back to Black (I don't care that she's a crackhead - homegirl is DRIPPING with talent), Dwight Yoakam's Greatest Hits, Jack Johnson Sleep Through Static and Prince Ultimate.

Yes - it was a very selective month.
