Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes! Volcanoes! The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice! Dogs and cats, living together! Mass hysteria! Ladies and gentlemen, this is THE BATTLE OF THE BANDS!
This music blogging event was first introduced by our friends and I'd like to give them a heartfelt "thank you":
Our battles take place twice a month: on the 1st and 15th. The results come six days later: on the 7th and 21st. That's when I return, total all of the votes, including mine (if necessary), and announce the winner.
I've cycling through the genres and buddy, it's time for a country tune (even a contemporary one!). One of the new guys of the last decade that I really appreciate is Dierks Bentley. He's easy on the eyes. Oh, and he sings! Yeah, that is what I meant to say.
My favorite Dierks Bently song is "Settle for a Slowdown." That baritone voice...that guitar...the lyrics...the subtle hipster smack down...yep, that's it, it's a Bentley night.
THE ORIGINAL: DIERKS BENTLEY
Let's make a little more interesting by doing a TRUE amateur edition!
CONTENDER #1: HUNTER PEEBLES
CONTENDER #2: GREG STEWART
(subtitled "What a different a mic makes.")
What will it be, my peeps? Slowhand Hunter Peebles or Greg "I Got Equipment" Stewart? I think both of these fellows have a good shot at it. Let's vote and I'll see you back here, GOD WILLING, on July 7! The battle is ON!
