The band's debut full-length record, being recorded in Garland with Mike Gage engineering and co-producing with the entire band, will offer listeners more of what many have already appreciated from the song that helped open doors for them. While fiddle has begun to disappear from much of the Texas country landscape, Andrew's eloquent sawing joins Graska's scorching lead guitar in carrying much of the sonic weight, teaming together much like the bass and drums do for most bands.

The band understands that the golden opportunity Kent enjoyed many years ago may not happen for them—not easily, at least. And that seems to suit the members just fine.

"Everything you want in life is outside of your comfort zone," Graska says with a chuckle as he repeats the mantra that Kent has lived by.
