Since Jason Boland & the Stragglers first arrived on the red dirt music scene in 1998 and released their first CD 'Pearl Snaps' a year later, they have set the standard for the genre's country sound. Boland's smooth, baritone voice and the band's equally smooth display of musical skills are often imitated, but never duplicated. Along with special guest Crooks, Jason Boland & the Stragglers are making their way to Abilene to play the Lucky Mule Saloon on Thursday night, January 24th.

While I'd love to go on and on about Crooks and how great they are, there's a video mini-documentary that sums up the band perfectly. Check it out here:

Jason Boland & The Stragglers

Some have called Jason Boland & The Stragglers neo-traditionalist country music. Others, simply Red Dirt country. No matter what you want to try to call this band, Boland and the boys have a knack for writing, recording and performing great songs that connect with a constantly growing fan base. From the 1999 debut release 'Pearl Snaps' to the most recent effort, 'Rancho Alto', this band has consistently been a constant influence on the next generation of artists on the Texas country music scene.

'Rancho Alto' has, to date, made the biggest splash on the national country scene, reaching #26 on the U.S. Country Charts. No small feat for an independent artist. Here's a segment from 'Texas Music Scene' featuring an interview and live performance of 'Outlaw Band' from Jason Boland & the Stragglers:
