Strung Like A Horse Releasing Debut Album Oct. 30

Tuesday, October 6, 2020

Chattanooga band Strung Like A Horse, who after years of extensive touring with their highly energetic shows turning them into a cult favorite, will release their debut album WHOA! on Oct. 30. They are also releasing the new single “Crazy Like Me” on Friday, Oct 16.

The record was produced and engineered by Grammy Award winner Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, John Prine, Brandi Carlile, Calexico/Iron & Wine, Margo Price, Josh Ritter) and recorded at Nashville’s legendary Sound Emporium studio.

Before the pandemic, the band was touring year-round, performing up to 100 shows a year, including Bonnaroo (labeled "Best Band Name"), AmericanaFest, Moon River Music Festival, Suwanee Roots, Wildwood Revival, Rhythm & Blooms, Summer Camp, HartfordFest, LibertyFest, NAMM, Road to Nightfall (winning act), and Get Off the Grid Fest. They have toured and performed alongside many bands including Old Crow Medicine Show, Shooter Jennings, Nicki Bluhm, Del McCoury, Charlie Daniels, Travis Tritt, Sam Bush, War, Lera Lynn, Honey Honey, and Hot Buttered Rum.

Regarding their band name which is a hot topic of debate (people either love it or hate it), they came up with it because they were predominantly a string band who were very reliant on bows, which are strung with horse hair, and given their raucous shows, they went through a lot of bows and often had to re-string them ahead of every performance. So despite it just seeming like a silly double entendre, their band name does have meaning to it.

We Must Love

I feel it too. It is easy to hate. Maybe we could try harder to love. Hate seeps into our bones, rules our integrity, and convinces us to forsake those we love. Hate is toxic. It spreads to our neighbors; people we once trusted. It spreads to our coworkers and friends; people who once trusted us. We lose sight of what truly matters. That is what we have in common now.

Roy Exum: Trump & The J-Word

There have been a bunch of times in my half-century as a writer when people – especially other writers – have called me out for being different. That in itself isn’t a bad thing (I rather like it), but Alf Van Hoose, the legendary sports editor, told me once in a crowd, “You are a rarity … you’ll put the word ‘Jesus’ in a paragraph, and I appreciate that.” But it’s true - the scariest ...
