Bishop Gunn "Makin' It"

I was perusing the internets yesterday and came upon an Esquire Magazine article that ranked Rolling Stones albums to celebrate their 55th anniversary. I am not going to spoil it for you but the top five are all desert island albums for me. But then, I was always a Stones vs. Beatles girl. My very first show was The Stones at The Academy of Music in NYC, in 1964. I am so happy that their No Filter Tour has been rescheduled, what with Mick’s heart surgery. I swear I'm going to catch one of these shows, not sure which yet, since they are not playing Nashville.

The band Bishop Gunn is based in Nashville, but they don't play here much. Those fundamental rock and roll career building planks still hold true: Play out as much as you can, put on a great show, and gather your audience as you keep moving. Bishop Gunn is originally from Natchez, which is the title of their debut full-length album, released in 2018. They are readying their second album, and they have some great news to share. They will be opening for the Stones in Houston on July 27th! Yeah, I may have to go to THAT one! Music Fog filmed Bishop Gunn during our recent recording sessions in Nashville. Here are Travis McCready (vocals, acoustic guitar), Drew Smithers (electric slide guitar), Ben Lewis (bass), and Burne Sharp (drums) bringing soul, grit, and chops for days to “Makin’ It.”
