"Raising a glass of Woodford Reserve with the crowd probably didn't hurt either."

In October, we were pleased to join our favorite Canadian troubadour on the road for a few dates. Colter Wall is a folksinger on the rise. His well crafted story songs and lonesome baritone have captivated audiences worldwide and sparked a new hope in the country music scene. Wall is a seasoned "road dog" at the ripe age of 22 and has become a festival favorite and a listener's "codeine dream." 

We were lucky to be included on this run with Wall for our first tour of the U.S. Northeast. Check out the review of our show at Atwood's Tavern in Cambridge, Massachusetts written by Steve Benoit of Boston Concert Photography and

While you're at it, check out Colter Wall and give him a follow on this machine. We're looking forward to keeping the roads hot with this talented feller.

From one of our favorite fellers, The Storyteller

"You are a credit to a great Kentucky tradition." - Tom T. Hall

Tom T. Hall is an American songwriter and musician, popularly deemed, The Storyteller and rightfully so. 

As a 27-year-old native of Olive Hill, Kentucky, Hall cut his teeth on Music Row in Nashville, churning out a plethora of damn good music and drinking a lot of black coffee. He released his album, "In Search Of A Song" in 1971, showcasing his creativity in observation and imagination. It's a record we keep close to the turntable and in the back of our thoughts as we earn our songwriting stripes. We channel Tom T. when we hit the road in The Merc and travel the two-lane. Hot coffee to open our senses and the radio dialed in to the purest country stations we can find. 

You can imagine our curiosity when we received an envelope with a mysterious Country Music Hall of Fame seal and our surprise upon revealing a handwritten letter from Tom T. 

This is the second personal letter of praise and encouragement we've received from our hero and we're damn proud. Thanks Tom T. We love ya. 

"2016 weren't bad at all cause we got two letters from Tom T. Hall" - The Local Honeys 


To The Local Honeys,

Linda sent me your C.D. It is original and wonderful in it's concept. I wish you all the best. You are a credit to a great Kentucky tradition. I have never been to John's Creek, but now I want to go!

Best wishes,

Tom T. Hall
