Wow! All of us Western Flyers are honored and thrilled to accept the award for "Best Western Swing Group" at the 2017 Ameripolitan Awards in Austin, Texas! Congrats to all the winners and nominees, and a big thank you to Dale Watson and the Ameripolitan staff for putting on such a stellar show!
We are excited to share the news that we have been nominated for an Ameripolitan Award for "Western Swing Group of the Year"! The Ameripolitan Awards are the brainchild of Austin based classic country troubadour Dale Watson and honor traditional artists not represented by mainstream "country" music. Results will be announced Feb 15, 2017. As a new band, this is an exciting honor, thank you Ameripolitan!
In addition to the release of our debut album 'Wild Blue Yonder', we had an exciting and whirlwind summer - from Montana to France, Michigan to Italy, Maine to Arizona to name just a few stops. Looking forward to a restful winter and gearing up for a jam packed 2017! Keep up with us on Facebook and consider joining our email list for an update when the Flyers will be gliding your way in 2017!
It was a treat to share the stage with Western Swing supergroup The Time Jumpers, at one of the nicest sounding venues around - the historic Greenville Municipal Auditorium, Greenville Texas!
Recorded in the Mile High City of Denver, Colorado, 'Wild Blue Yonder' is a recording of three great friends playing the music we love - swinging Bob Wills classics, toe-tapping cowboy tunes, hot jazz and swing standards, classic honky-tonk songs, and high flying Texas fiddle tunes. Release date July 29, 2016. Amazing four panel artwork by Brad Smith. Ahh..haaa!
