Listen to the interview and performance here: http://www.npr.org/2012/02/29/147669937/kevn-kinney-and-golden-palominos-on-world-cafe
Kevn Kinney of Drivin N Cryin and Anton Fier of The Golden Palominos combine the twangy side of their respective rock bands for an album aptly titled A Good
Country Mile. Through the '80s rock scene, Kinney and Fier be
came friends and collaborators, and the trend continues more than 20 years later.
The sound of A Good Country Mile is unexpected, especially for Fier —
it's a heavy, robust country album. Driven by the Palominos' addictive melodicism and Kinney's husky Southern vocals, the album rocks with pedal-steel guitar, ample harmonica and covers of country classics.
Hear the pair perform tracks from A Good Country Mile on today's episode of World Cafe.
