The Star Room Boys
The Star Room Boys have a fresh ear for relevant twang, but they manage to infuse a wide open road of old time Honky-Tonk heartache into their sound. This Athens outfit possess some of the richest backline to grace country music in a while. For those ashamed to cry in their beer mugs, The Star Room Boys have a pedal steel that does all the crying for you; the weeping tones coming from the fingers of this slide-master must be heard to be believed. Dave Marr's voice is an incredible gift from the big bartender of the Honky-Tonk in the sky. His incredible inflections seem to weep in unison with the steel as his elastic voice tastefully stretches out high-lonesome bits on the downswing.
