An Extra Helping of the WDVX Blue Plate Special featuring Dylan LeBlanc Performing “Domino”

Dylan LeBlanc and his band recently visited the Blue Plate Special. We were lucky to catch them as they were finishing up a swing through the Southeast before heading off to Europe. The audience was treated to songs from Dylan’s newest album, “Cautionary Tale” (2016), which has been airing here on WDVX. Dylan told us that they have been working on some new material and that he hopes to have a new CD ready to go in early 2018. This song, “Domino”, is a brand new tune, and one that we’ll hopefully see on the new release. Find out more about Dylan LeBlanc on his website at http://www.dylanleblanc.com/

An Extra Helping of the WDVX Blue Plate Special Featuring Travis Linville Performing “Wishes”

Oklahoma’s Travis Linville joined us on the Blue Plate Special. The Oklahoma Gazette called Travis a “godfather of modern Oklahoma folk” for his performances, teaching, and production work during his 20-plus year career. A multi-instrumentalist with multiple CDs to his credit, Travis is also known for his work as a sideman with Texas songwriter Hayes Carll, who calls him “One of my all-time favorite musicians.” Travis’ newest release is called “Up Ahead” (March, 2017) and he closed his show with this tune, “Wishes”, from that album. Find out lots more about Travis Linville and see why Rolling Stone included him in their list of “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know” (3/17) on his website at http://www.travislinvillemusic.com/

An Extra Helping of the WDVX Blue Plate Special Featuring the Mastersons Performing “You Could Be Wrong”

The Blue Plate Special recently welcomed The Mastersons to the stage. Well known for their hectic touring schedule as a duo, as well as members of Steve Earle’s band , The Dukes, Chris Masterson and Eleanor Whitmore shared some tunes from their new CD, “Transient Lullaby” (May, 2017). The album was recorded in Austin, TX and they told us that most of the songs were written (by necessity) while on the road. This tune, “You Could Be Wrong”, is a perfect example. The Mastersons found themselves on tour in Lexington, KY, during the height of Kim Davis’ obstinate stand against the Supreme Court’s same sex marriage decision, so they penned the infectious melody in a dressing room before taking the stage with “Love Wins” draped across their guitars. Discover lots more about The Mastersons on their website at: http://www.themastersonsmusic.com/

An Extra Helping of the WDVX Blue Plate Special Featuring The Royal Hounds performing “Ghost Riders In the Sky”

The Royal Hounds made a stop at the Blue Plate Special as part of the tour supporting their latest album “Poker All Night Long” (2016). Known for their high energy performances and on-stage antics (and a longtime favorite here at WDVX) the band initially formed in East Tennessee. We still like to claim them as our own – even though they are now based out of Nashville and Las Vegas. This tune is a galloping rockabilly cover of “Ghost Riders In The Sky” – Royal Hounds style! The Royal Hounds are: Scott Hinds, vocals/bass, Matheus Canteri, guitar/vocals, and Scott “Bramble” Billingsley, drums/vocals. Learn lots more about The Royal Hounds, and find out where you can see their next show at: https://www.theroyalhounds.com/
