The Best Westerns

artworks-000087125672-cvkc8g-t500x500.jpg

They're a group of Missoula guys who started a country and western band primarily so they could sing while wearing cowboy hats. In their songs, The Best Westerns "walk the line" between their appreciation for Western mythology, and their slice-of-life portrayals of modern life.

(Broadcast: "Musicians' Spotlight," 1/8/15 and 8/5/14. Listen weekly on on the radio Thursdays, 7:30 p.m., or via podcast.)
