Jeff's releasing an ep of country tunes. Yes, seriously.

Quote :
On November 9th Tesla frontman Jeff Keith will be releasing an EP entitled 'Jeff Keith And Country Music Friends'. The six song country EP is now available for pre-order at jeffkeithcountry.com, with the first 500 copies being personally autographed by Keith.

Says Jeff Keith, "Once upon a time I was playing a Tesla show in Canada when Kent Goodson and Pat Boone from The George Jones band came to see us. The next thing you know us three were on a pontoon boat in Nashville fulfilling a dream I've always had writing country music songs. You can hear more about us getting together on the bonus tracks of our EP available here soon."

"I've wanted to do a country project since my early days of growing up in Oklahoma and with the help of a couple of buddies of mine it's now reality," Keith continiues. "Kent played with George Jones for 28 years, and Pat still runs sound for George now for over 9 years, and I have been the lead singer for Tesla for over 25 years now. We hope that this EP will allow us to record a full length studio recorded in Nashville Tennessee! Put on your cowboy hat and chime on in. There is a lot more yet to come."

'Jeff Keith And Country Music Friends' track listing:
1. Same Ol' Cowboy
2. Life Is Just A Roller Coaster Ride
3. I Can't Let Go
4. Life On The Road
5. Oklahoma Bound
6. Oh Hell
7. CMF Interviews

Sorry Jeff. No thanks. If you want to hear some clips, click here...

I was hoping this would be "modern country" (aka "Southern rock) but that's pretty twangy sounding based on those clips.

He's going old, old school country. Like 1950's-Grand Ole Opry-rhinestone suites-pedal steel guitars-country. Not my bag, but if he's having fun, more power to him.

Yeah, I don't blame the guy for putting out an album of music he just wants to play. If you have the $$$ to do it, go for it. It's just not my thang.

Actually I bet country traditionalists who bemoan how much "rock" is in modern country would probably dig it.

If you didn't know any better, you might think it's some kinda joke. Like he's taking the piss outta some of those old country songs. But I guess he's sincere about it. Oh well.

That's not '50's style, it's 60's style. Straight George Jones from his Wichita Lineman days. Laughing

Oh, not my thing. I'm more of an outlaw country guy.

50's, 60's. Whichever. It just conjures up images like this when I hear that type of country.

No thanks - I do not like country music at all. Not a fan of any era of country music.... probably one of the reasons I'm not a big fan of southern rock either.

I can handle some country in very small doses, mostly from Johnny Cash or Junior Brown. But I've heard enough of that old school honky-tonk growing up that I don't need to hear it ever again. As well, I was never big on southern rock either.

My Dad listened to country all the time while I was growing up, so I heard a lot of it and never liked it!

I hate country. DETEST IT!

The only southern rock band I can stomach is The Allman Brothers, but they had more jazz influence than country in their sound. At least on their early albums, once Duane passed away I lost interest in their sound. My least favorite ABB song is Ramblin' Man...which is funny considering it was their biggest hit. That's WAY too damn country for me.

I like alternative country, outlaw country, and pop country so I'm not sure whether this would interest me or not. Not being modern country it could seeing as I hate any country after 1990. This is about as country as I get:

Johnny Cash
Waylon Jennings
The Highwaymen
Willie Nelson
The Lost Dogs
Johnny Horton
Bellamy Brothers
Kenny Rogers
Ronnie Milsap
Mac Davis
Marty Robbins
Dolly Parton
Charlie Daniels
The Allman Brothers
Alabama

Maybe a few others. If his stuff is anything like those bands, I'd give him a shot (if I had the money that is).

Sweet outfits ! And I rather enjoy that old style country (infinitely more so than what passes today for country) mainly because of my dad listening to that stuff all the time (and watching Hee Haw).

I dislike country, too, but I ordered it the other day. I hadn't heard samples then, though, but even then I figured I'd toss a little cash his way as support. I was hoping it'd have more in common with southern rock than country.

His put-on country accent in the video was highly annoying, though.
