Whitey Morgan Announces New Live LP, Offers Up Audio of "Buick City" (Premiere)

Honky tonk maestro Whitey Morgan has a new live album ready for the holiday season. Below you can get a taste of what's to come by streaming "Buick City".

In his 2010 PopMatters review of Whitey Morgan and the 78's' self-titled sophomore outing, Stephen Haag wrote that the group "an album meant to be played -– and loud -– in a shitty dive bar jukebox. And yes, that’s a compliment." He finished his review by saying the music will make you want to "to crank this record and turn up the bottle."

Now, four years later, Morgan and his band have readied their followup to Whitey Morgan and the 78's, the live LP Born, Raised, & LIVE From Flint, which was recorded in Morgan's Michigan hometown.
