North Carolina’s Sarah Shook and the Disarmers shake up classic country sounds with a heavy dose of punk rock energy. Yeah, they’re a country band, but not of the sort currently dominating the mainstream Nashville country scene. Sarah Shook and the Disarmers are outsiders and proud of it. Remember the term “insurgent country” that was coined to describe hard-driving alternative country? That may as well be this band’s main descriptor as the “insurgent” aspect of the phrase best characterizes their independent spirit.
