The Cold Hearts- NO COVER

The Cold Hearts honor the tradition of classic country/honky tonk music. We like to think of classic country as a style of American music for the working man and women. We hope we can remind you of a time in your life long ago when you hear an old Waylon or Willie song. I personally hear songs like “Blue Eye’s crying in the Rain” and go back to hearing an old six string in the next room as a kid. Music has the power to let us all escape and say “Take This Job and Shove It” and feel it even if we don’t mean it. Come and see us and see what memories we can spark in you.

99.1 WQRT Rhinestone Country presents The Country Side of Harmonica Sam

The Country Side of Harmonica Sam represents a rare and unique branch of contemporary country music. This is country music like it sounded in the late 50’s and early 60’s; more modern sounding than the 40’s Hillbilly style sometimes seen on the rockabilly scene around Europe. At the same time it’s far from the contemporary Nashville sound of country music. With a steady 4/4 shuffle, steel guitar and bass, the band performs their own original songs right alongside classics from Faron Young, Skeets McDonald, Billy Walker and Ray Price - to name a few.

One satisfied audience  member, admiring adamantly commented, “This band is like taking a vacation in your home town.”

Thee Vatos Supreme’s ringleader, Alexander-Lee McQueen, was born in the  limestone country of Oolitic, Indiana and cut his musical teeth in the punk rock scene of nearby Bloomington. But he also fell under the spell  of Texas Songwriters like Guy Clark, Billy Joe Shaver, and Joe Ely– eventually moving to Austin Texas to hone his songwriting and performing skills. He has played high energy Honky Tonk and Tex-Mex influenced  shows from Boston to Denver (where he opened for Gordon Gano of The Violent Femmes), Nashville to Chicago, and New York to Los Angeles.

Now he’s back, home again in Indiana! Swinging high & wide — Woodshedding with world renowned and regional stalwarts:


JERRY MILLER (lead guitarist for Eilen Jewell) on Pedal Steel & Telecaster;

SAM FINELY (of The Double Digits) on Bass;

TIM MOORE (of Salaam Band) on Drums

– collectively known as Thee Vatos Supreme – to bring that same much needed energy to country music fans everywhere.

On their second record, West of Here, their songwriting chops match those interlocking voices, with all three members contributing songs to an album that deals with the constant search for home.
