Gibson/Miller Band

They ain’t pretty and they don’t dance. But they do mix blue-collar heart and blue-jeans spunk into a rowdy blend of commercial country and straight-ahead Southern rock. Fueled by tongue-in-cheek lyrics (“She’s getting a rock and I’m getting stoned’ and “Your daddy hates me, much as I love you”) and Dave Gibson’s weathered tenor, their debut album conjures up freewheeling, fast-drinking honkytonk nights.

The five-member band is led by Gibson (who penned Alabama’s “Jukebox in My Mind” and Tanya Tucker’s “If It Don’t Come Easy”) and Blue Miller, a veteran Detroit sideman who honed his razor-sharp guitar licks on the road with Isaac Hayes and Bob Seger. They belt out ballads and bam burners with equal parts edge and humor. (Epic)
