When Morgan and crew come to town, Brett Robinson will pluck that rectangle-shaped bunch of strings sitting on a table, aka a steel guitar, Morgan will play guitar and sing, Joey Spina will add more guitar, Alex Lyon will hold the bass bottom, Tony D will rock the drums and Tony Martinez will play acoustic guitar. The band’s latest album is Sonic Ranch, which features songs like “Still Drunk, Still Crazy, Still Blue,” “Drunken Nights in the City,” “Lowdown on the Backstreet,” “Me and the Whiskey” and an awesome version of Tom T. Hall’s “That’s How I Got To Memphis,” which has been covered by Bobby Bare, Lee Hazlewood, Solomon Burke and many others. Read more about the group in this week's Sound Advice.
