Desoto Magazine – February 2018 Issue – Southern Harmony/The Salty Dogs
Monday, January 29th, 2018
I am flattered to say that The Salty Dogs won the CAMA award last evening for Best Country Performer. Central Arkansas has a plethora of musical talent and more importantly…great people. Other nominees in this category were just as worthy and we share the recognition: The Wildflower Revue, Dylan Earl, Bonnie Montgomery. I’m blessed to play music with great friends and great musicians. Thank yous and congratulations to Brent LaBeau, Nick Devlin, Bart Angel, MIke Nelson, Stephen Winter, Isaac Alexander – your contributions to the band, well, have made the band.
Lastly, thank you to the Arkansas Times, Arkansas Sounds, and the voting board for taking the time, effort, and money to recognize great music in the state of Arkansas. #CentralArkansasMusicAwards #ArkansasTimes #ArkansasSounds #TheSaltyDogs #CountryMusic #Arkansas #PaigeCapos #Silvertone #Modtone
“The Salty Dogs sound the way country music should sound. Authentic and looking forward. One foot in Arkansas, one foot in California. I’ll have more please!” – Odie Blackmon (Grammy nominated songwriter)
“Just got done listening to these new Salty Dogs tunes, great stuff as usual. Very traditional without falling into the endless sea of the 60 years too late rockabilly wannabes or common sounding ditties. Nice songs that don’t all sound alike – great stuff guys!” – Gary Bennett (BR5-49/Gary Bennett)_________________________________________________
The Salty Dogs have been working on a new 6 song EP set to be released late 2017. Special contributions to the album include:
Brian’s bio includes The Broken West, Dwight Yoakam and his great solo work. He currently is touring with his band and playing guitar for Chris Shiflett. Check out his latest release, Sugarland. www.brianwhelanmusic.com
Rodney Block and the Real Music Lovers are a household name in Central Arkansas. Rodney can lay down the jazz, funk and soul like no other. Check out Rodney Block’s latest release, Eyes Haven’t Seen: Ears Haven’t Heard. www.facebook.com/
Tim is an all around great musician and an even greater guy. Tim’s bio doesn’t stop. Tim has played/performed/recorded with artists such as Ricky Skaggs, Alan Jackson, Dolly Parton and on and on… When he is not on the Grand Ole Opry, he resides in Strawberry, Arkansas. Tim has a new solo album out and recently was featured on Alan Jackson’s bluegrass album.
Stephen has been an honorary Salty Dog since the early 2000s. He has been the Billy Preston of the group filling in the gaps with B3, piano or whatever we throw his way. Stephen has perfect pitch. Seriously. Stephen can be found any time/anywhere in the country playing piano for masses.
