The members of local country grass duo Redkeg Husky (Tim McWilliams and Son the Bassman) wear Wrangler jeans and eat peanut butter burritos. They also spend a lot of time on the road, as evidenced by both their list of upcoming show dates (at points all across the southeast) and their most recent video, “Hell is a Gas Station Bathroom.”
The song, an ambling old-school country-style anti-ode to the road, is part tongue-in-cheek, part doggedly weary. It’s also a compelling piece of Americana, from small towns to the characters who people the pit stops. Plus, the scenery includes familiar views from Asheville to Charleston, S.C.
Redly Husky performs at The Town Pump in Black Mountain on Sunday, April 23; and at The Grey Eagle (opening for Chris Jamison’s Ghost) on Wednesday, April 26.
