Last weekend was great week for The Honeycutters! They had a pair of hometown shows at the Isis Music Hall in Asheville with a more formal sit down dinner crowd on Friday night and a sold-out standing room only show on Saturday night. Check out this great review of the show in the Mountain Xpress by Alli Marshall. They’ll be LIVE on WGWG in Boiling Springs, NC at 2 PM Eastern on Thursday, May 30th. You can listen here!!
They just introduced a brand new song “Wedding Song” and have been thinking of putting it on the new record but haven’t made up their minds yet! Please let us know what you think of it by posted a comment below or leave a note on their facebook wall! Watch the performance of the song below.
