ROOTS & OZARK BLUES (CD Track Order)

1 -HONKY TONKIN’ (6:00) ©2010 Mick Byrd - Ozark Blues - (Featured Track)

Tap your toes. Bob your head. Drum your fingers on the table. Get up and dance! Time to do a little Honky Tonkin’….

2 - STOPLIGHT (3:19) ©2013 Mick Byrd - Country (Featured Track)

Big things happen in small towns. Everybody has a story. This is a story about a town with only one stoplight. (actually a caution light) – my town!

3 - WAITIN’ FOR YOU (4:17) ©2011 Mick Byrd - Rock

The waiting is the hardest part.

4 - MEN LIKE THAT (3:55) ©2012 Mick Byrd - Country

Love is never selfish, Love is kind. Love can be old school. It is ok!

5 - A LITTLE BIT OF WHISKEY (3:36) ©2012 Mick Byrd - Ozark Blues

Relax and let life happen. It might be pretty good!

6 - PRINCESS (3:00) ©2010 Mick Byrd - Roots Country

There are lots of princesses in the Ozarks. Most of them drive pickup trucks.

7 - THE SWEETEST LIES (4:10) ©2009 Mick Byrd - Country Americana

A lie dressed up in a pretty package is still a lie.

8 - REVIS ROCK BLUES (3:55) ©2010 Mick Byrd - Ozark Blues (Featured Track)

When I was a little boy my Dad would take me fishing almost every Sunday. If he would have left me at home he probably would have caught more fish, but I wouldn’t have this song!

9 - HIGH ON THE LOWDOWN (3:05) ©2010 Mick Byrd - Roots Country

Tomorrow just might be a better day – Maybe a lot better.

10 - ALL TIED UP IN YOU (3:39) ©2013 Mick Byrd - Americana

Love can be a tangled mess – A beautiful tangled mess.

11 - GREYHOUND BLUES (3:51) ©2013 Mick Byrd - Ozark Blues

Any place other than here has an allure – might be good – might not.

12 - WALKIN’ STICK (2:44) ©2014 Mick Byrd - Roots Country

Sometimes the ground is rough. It’s is important to have a good stick to lean on. This story about a grandson and his grandad is a tribute to my friend and fiddle player who passed away. He had a habit of collecting sticks and turning them into walkin’ sticks.

Mick Byrd and The Backroad Band are bringing fans in the Midwest some of the best foot-stompin’, hand-clappin’, original Roots and Blues to come out of the Heartland! Mick’s warm, gutsy vocals and Joe Dunlap’s Santana-esque guitar riffs are laid on top of sweet rhythm acoustic guitar and topped off with the groove of tasteful percussion by Ray Spiller. The talents of the band combine to provide listeners with tunes you can really get your ears around.
