By PopMatters Staff

Chuck Mead, the co-founder of alt-country’s BR549, releases his latest album Journeyman’s Wager on May 12th and features his usual eclectic blend of roots rock sources. “I Wish It Was Friday” has Mead bopping around town on a scooter to a honky-tonkish rockabilly tune. He’s got a packed tour schedule kicking off in May including a stop off at the Minneapolis State Fair in August, which you can check out after the jump.
