Miracle Mule's lastest single, Swampy Tonkin', off of the upcoming album of the same name, has been released. You can pick up a copy on Amazon.com or iTunes, or you can stream it for free on Spotify.
The song, written by band leader Geoff Mack, is an attempt to boil down the essence of Miracle Mule's Swampy Tonk music into a single song. With classic honky tonk rhythms, accordion, and pedal steel, this upbeat little provides the perfect antidote to modern living. It is purposefully backward, fun loving, and made for dancing at a honky tonk. The lyrics, much like the music, are simple and decidedly non-modern, telling the story of a man and his sweetheart going out for a night on the town.
If you like Americana music, roots music, or good old honky tonk music, you'll enjoy Swampy Tonkin' by Miracle Mule.
It has been an amazing year for Miracle Mule. We would like to thank the academy and all of the fans who have made this possible. We've been nominated for Grammies in two categories:
