Usually I’m totally above board here on S:I. All the songs are cleared and free and legal with an occasional exception. Heybale is one of these exceptions, they’re a country supergroup of sorts from Austin, Texas. I haven’t exactly been given permission to post this but as soon as several dozen of you crash their website with cd orders I think they’ll come around.
Look, I’m generally a humble guy but where else are you going to be able to find out about honky tonk with this much dirt and grit attached. These guys are nearly of the living legend status especially Redd Volkaert but the whole band has played with folks like Johnny Cash, Buck Owens, Dale Watson, Junior Brown and Merle Haggard. Help me prove to the band that free mp3′s sell music and visit their website and buy their new cd, The Last Country Album, here (they’ve got it in all the standard formats) if you like what you hear.

Teddy Thompson is an S:I approved artist and he would be regardless of who his famous parents are. He simply has a knack for making polished pop that is neither here nor there.
The new record is called A Piece Of What You Need and it’s out June 17 on Verve Forecast.
