Live this Thursday at 4pm: THE OVER MOUNTAIN MEN

David Childers, his son Robert, and Bob Crawford (Avett Brothers bassist) formed The Over Mountain Men in 2010, near the famous  1780 Battle of Kings Mountain that was won by the ragtag revolutionary soldiers they take their name from.  Their 2nd album, "The Next Best Thing" will be released on January 22nd on Ramseur Records.  We look forward to hearing some of these songs live in Studio B when David & Robert, guitarist Randy Saxon, and bassist Dale Shoemaker visit.
