If you are a country music fan it’s a safe bet that you know who Toby Keith is and about his restaurant  Toby Keith’s I love this Bar and Grill. Who you are probably less familiar with (or not familiar with at all) is the up and coming  group from Nashville called The Farm, who will be playing at Toby Keith’s I love this Bar and Grill Dallas location the 12th of october. The group consists of three members, Nick Hoffman, Krista Marie and Damien Horne who all come from different musical backgrounds. Nick with his fiddle is more of a country music purist , Krista started out as a solo vocalist with a background in opera and Damien first moved to Nashville with his alternative rock band.  While their musical influences are eclectic and you can hear them coming through in the songs the music they make together is definitely country, with clear vocal harmonies and energetic fiddle. If you are a country music fan they deliver everything you love about country music and if you are not a country music fan they might surprise you with a new approach to the genre you didn’t expect.

“If you’ve ever watched CMT between the hours of 3 and 4 am, you might have seen this music video. Or if you’re a night nurse, or work at Waffle House, you might have seen it too.” The Rich O’Toole Band embraces their status as an up-and-coming act that hasn’t yet had appropriate airtime. They are opening for Rodney Atkins at the Granada Theater, and the plaid-clad crowd is singing along and Jersey Shore fist-pumping to lyrics that resound their life experiences.

Their energy is contagious, and even though I retired my love of country music years ago, (the California kid in me pretends that Lady Danville and the Silversun Pickups are much cooler) I am an instant fan. And it doesn’t hurt that lead singer Rich is a sexy beast.
