BOTB Results: "Settle for a Slowdown"


It's a quick wrap up today, folks! How did the "Slowdown" boys fare, eh? Inquiring minds want to know.

Well, they may be amateurs but they're easy on the ears, in my humble opinion. When push comes to shove, and it always does, Greg Stewart beat Hunter Peeples while Dierks just smiled to himself. I'll have to tell Greg that he won...

Battle of the Bands: "Settle on a Slowdown"


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.
