Soulajar Goes Country!

It had been not quite 3 years since we met Brian Boozer of the band Soulajar.  Tonight we caught up with Brian and talked about Soulajar’s new twang-alicious track “Love’s A Funny Thing.”  Talking with Brian, we learned that this new track reached #7 on’s Country-Rock download chart.  That’s a great thing because proceeds of the sale of this song during April and May will benefit the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life – Bakersfield this May.

Check out the song here and then go an purchase it to help out some great guys and a great cause.  Thanks for taking time out from your parental duties to talk with us, Brian!

Alrighty.  Here’s the playlist and some youtube clips.  We played a few tracks in tribute to two great musicians who recently passed away and one for a musician who is on the mend.  The music world recently lost Levon Helm of The Band and Chris Etheridge of the Flying Burrito Brothers.  We also learned yesterday that Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees came out of a 12 day coma and is in the process of recovering.  Wishing you well, Robin!  Enjoy and thanks for listening.

The Band – “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down”

This is one of the Flying Burrito Brothers songs that was co-written by Chris Etheridge.

  1. Thanks for a great show and congratulations to Soulajar. I always appreciate the Buck Owens Bee Gees cover. If I had been in a position to advise him, I would have also suggested that he record a cover of the Bee Gees recording, “Don’t Forget to Remember.” In fact, that would be a great addition to your playlist, so I suppose you can consider this a request.
