ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This 6-song EP from Girl Howdy is a twangy mix of honky tonk originals and tasty covers from the Golden Age of Country Music. Piano, steel, acoustic guitar, upright bass and drums support the soaring vocal harmonies with irresistible two-step dance grooves.

"We were entertained on a recent car trip by “Honky Tonk Hair,’’ the fab new release by Girl Howdy (Is there a law against dancing in the car?)....We’re still dancin’ to the title track and workin’ on our hair." -Boston Globe

------------------------------------------------------------
“Tammy Faye said with a knowing nod,
‘The higher the hair, the closer to God’
And all I know is if that’s true
I’m already in heaven and enjoying the view
‘Cause I got…
Honky tonk hair – piled way up high
Honky tonk hair – straight up to the sky
Honky tonk hair – the kind that makes ‘em stare
Man sakes alive, no, I can’t behave when I got my beehive”

Yeah, the title track of the new Girl Howdy EP just about says it all. The frontline trio of guitarist Betsy Dawn Williams, pianist Paula Bradley and pedal steel guitarist Rose Sinclair are livin’ the old-school country honky tonk life, and with the able assistance of bassist Brian Rost and drummer Billy Nadeau, they’ve cooked up a smart, sharp six-song disc that would nestle nicely in any 1956 roadhouse jukebox.

The vocal harmonies are right on the money. The steel guitar-piano combo is a perfect melding of twang ‘n’ boogie woogie. And they’ve got the songs to back it all up, too. Originals like the title track and the rollicking roadhouse romp, “Eenie Meenie Miney,” cozy up to classics like the Tammy Wynette weeper “Apartment No. 9″ and the swingin’, Roger Miller-penned “Invitation to the Blues.”

Nothing sounds forced or rushed here. Even when the gals crank up the tempo, everything seems to slip right into the pocket. Girl Howdy obviously has a deep and abiding love for this music, and chances are you’ll feel the same way about Girl Howdy if you’re an old-school country fan. ---- Nippertown.com
