RADIO FRIEND PHIL – Greetings! Welcome to this week’s New Tunes at 9 Roundup. (New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9 p.m. on WJTL.)
The Rhett Walker Band played the Junction Center Tent last night, along with Plumb and David Dunn.
Singer/guitarist Rhett Walker and drummer Kenny Davis were my guests on New Tunes at 9; we talked about the band’s second project, “Here’s to the Ones,” released last week. http://wjtl.com/listen/wjtl-casts/ The Rhett Walker Band is a Southern-fried rock band with deep roots in South Carolina. Rhett Walker unapologetically cites his musical influences as The Allman Brothers, Tom Petty, Ryan Adams, and John Mellancamp, among others. (His songwriting heroes are a diverse cast of characters; Rhett explained the process of writing for the record, and the importance of taking time to cook on the grill.)
