Authentic Country Music

Seth Turner

 

Hell Yeah!

 

Several years ago Seth started out down a road he hoped would lead him to Nashville. In 2008 his path intersected with the musical roads of six others. Today, they're known as Seth Turner and The High Desert Drifters and are an exceptional collection of performers from many walks of life, from all over our great country. This fine group displays a wide array of talents and personalities as they perform music that spans generations and encompasses many genres while always staying true to their roots, authentic country music.

With Seth and his band, you get more than a show, you get an experience.

Love From Texas

Looking back on twenty years covering the music business, a few memories stand out. Almost all the memories and moments were good. Almost. But a few… damn. A few were worth every bit of two decades and more.

The times I made the drive from Fort Worth to Dallas for Springsteen, Bryan Adams, Meatloaf, Social D, Merle Haggard, George Jones… those are on the short list. One trip apiece, all still vivid in my heart.

The drive to Austin to see Asleep At the Wheel, that counts. Six hours round trip for what ended up about a two hour show. Worth it.

Four hours to Houston once to see Jackson Taylor open up for Billy Joe Shaver on a Saturday night. Left straight from the airport after flying in from Charlotte, where on a work trip I’d been able to sneak in David Childers one night and Tom Russell on Friday. That ended up being a pretty decent week.

But there’s only one band I’ve driven from Fort Worth to Las Vegas to see, and that’s happened twice now. With more to come.

Seth Turner and the High Desert Drifters work a room as well as I ever saw Waylon or George Strait do, and as a band onstage they’re as tight as anybody I’ve ever put my ears on. The music snob in me hates it when they do a set full of covers, but the journalist in me watches crowds eat up what they want to hear. And watches the beer tubs run dry. The price of a show biz town, I suppose. Feed ‘em cake. But the music fan in me has heard the original songs and knows what the band’s really worth. They’re the Stockyards on a Saturday night. They’re Lone Star beer and Bob Wills would kill to lead this music. They’re pros who show up and honor commitments, which is a thing not always exactly the norm here in Texas where my roots dig for water. They’re as stout musically as any outfit I’ve ever had the privilege to experience for myself. Independents, big names, headliners, I don’t care. Stack these men up and measure. You’ll see.

Cowtown to Vegas is a hike. It’s an awful pretty drive once you get past Amarillo, but it’s a hike. I’ve made it twice purely to listen to this band. And I’ll make it again.

Twenty years in and around the business, they’re the only band I can say that about. Nobody else ever got more than four hours tops of blacktop time out of me.
