That’s right, friends. William Robert Thornton, of Sling Blade fame, is going back on the road with his rockabilly band, The Boxmasters. Fun fact: he goes by “Bud” while on tour.
The group is touring on their last album, Modbilly, which topped the Americana Radio Chart for two weeks, and on their Christmas comp, Christmas Cheer. They will also premiere new songs from their 2010 album, Bellflower.
So fry yourself up some French-fried potaters (mmm-hmmmm), check out The Boxmasters’ cover of “The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late)” on iTunes and, if you’re in Texas or California, check out their live show for a rip-roarin’ good rockabilly time.
