    YES

    Their music is so cathartic for me. I love it. They've totally helped me through some hard times. Before I just knew Blister in the Sun, but after watching Rocket Science and Lost and Delirious I realized how great they truly are.

    Country Love And Death Songs

    "I gave her a push, I gave her a shove, I pushed with all my might, I pushed with all my love. I threw my daughter down a bottomless pit - She was screaming as she fell, but I never heard her hit."

    I Saw Them

    I actually saw them for free here in San Diego at the Del Mar Fair like 7 years ago. It was amazing. I guess they were in town and they just decided to set up right in the dirt parking lot and play a show for everyone. It rocked.
