Yeah, I don’t feel like talking about Chuck Hagel either. So let’s spin some tunes.
Don’t let the title of the post scare you. I’m not generally a fan of country music myself — just country rock. But these bands qualify for the latter title, even if they are classified in the former.

The factoid: these are bands of brothers. You know how I said both bands are from Austin, but originally came from Idaho? That’s because there are four brothers in these two bands: Micky and Gary Braun from Micky and the Motorcars, and Willy and Cody Braun of Reckless Kelly.
What’s next? Boots?
