Malcolm Holcombe at McGonigel’s Mucky Duck – July 12, 2016

For over 2 decades and 10-plus albums, Malcolm Holcombe has treaded right on the cusp of notoriety and infamy. One of my favorite quotes on Holcombe has always come from Steve Earle, who said he was “the best songwriter I ever threw out of my studio.” That follows the intensity and controlled chaos that is a […]

INTRODUCING ANDREW COMBS:

Nashville gets a bad rap and, for all intents and purposes, it’s well earned. Sure Nashville is too blame for Big & Rich.

NINEBULLETS.NET DECEMBER PODCAST: SOME OF MY FAVORITE SONGS EDITION

The December podcast will ring out 2009 here on ninebullets.

Enter Smitty from the DBT mailing list. He’s taken the liberty of assembling a new collection of covers songs culled from the […]

MALCOLM HOLCOMBE – FOR THE MISSION BABY

Last week Kasey wrote a piece about Tom Russell and I wanted to put this up the very next day. It failed to happen because I am exceptionally lazy and terribly behind. I wanted to put those posts back to back because I think there are a lot of parallels between their careers. Both have […]

NINEBULLETS.NET AUGUST PODCAST:

Here we are. Another month, another podcast. Can you believe it’s been 6 months? Traffic on these is improving a little and that’s raised my spirits about doing them…I know I’m supposed to be all about doing them regardless of the amount of people who listen….and I will be, just as soon as the podcast’s […]
