The name of Little Rock country rock outfit the Good Time Ramblers‘ newest album is Bigelow Strange, and the eight tracks are filled with stories of teens stealing dad’s whiskey, dying mom-and-pop stores and girls breaking hearts. The band’s sound is genuine music, not polished country rock. GTR plays Stickyz, and word has it that the band has some new tunes ready with the idea of getting back into the studio early in 2014.
