MRB Update

Our new studio album "Can't Afford the Luck" is all finished up!  We recorded and mixed the album at Red Star Recording Studios in Arlington, TX and took it to Los Angeles, CA to have it mastered at Lurssen Mastering.  I am very excited about the release of this album and so is everyone in the MRB and our camp.

I wrote eleven of the twelve tracks on the album with a little help from a few friends.  The one song none of us had any part in writing is a Chips Moman written tune ("Brand New Goodbye Song" ) as recorded by the late great Waylon Jennings.  I have been a huge Waylon fan since I can remember being a fan of music and it was alot of fun to do a remake of a song he recorded and released.  I co-wrote a waltz ("Lonesome Waiting at Home") with my good buddy and drummer Brandon Rice. Some of you may know him as Spud Crowley. Same guy.  With the help of fellow songwriters and friends, Heath Webb and Jonny Hord, we finished up the writing of "Sweet Chiba, Mi Amiga" together. 

The new album cover should be finished up soon.  Our friend Bubba from Elm Street Tattoos did the design and he did a killer job.  Spud recently had Bubba put a tattoo of Buck Owens acoustic on his forearm and came up with the design while he was getting inked.  If you need a tattoo go see Bubba!  We have been hard at work rebuilding our website and updating our social sites.  We uploaded the title track "Can't Afford the Luck" onto our website ( and ReverbNation.  If you get a chance please swing by and take a listen.  We will be rotating the new songs on our website leading up to the release.  Please sign the mailing list while you are there so we can include you in special giveaways and promitions we will be offering.  These offers will only be made through the bands e-mail list.

More to come soon so please check back and tell your friends.  Different members from the MRB will be posting to this blog as we venture on down the road.  Hope we see you soon!
