New! Moe Bandy´s Autobiography: "Lucky Me"

Country Music legend George Jones once said, “Moe Bandy is what Country Music is all about. When he sings a song, it has been sung.”

 

That´s why when you buy a Moe Bandy or Gene Watson CD, you know exactly what you are going to hear…real country music. And when you open Moe’s autobiography, you know exactly what you are going to read about…a real country music artist… One of the all-time greatest.

 

Moe says: "Lucky Me is also the title of my latest album. But it really sums up my life. I was lucky in so many ways in my life and my career. And I am blessed in so many ways with the life I have today. So I think ‘Lucky Me’ is a very appropriate title for my life story".

 

Former First Lady Barbara Bush sayd about "Lucky Me": "You will love this wonderful story of a Texas boy who never gave up on his dreams. He and his music are true American icons, and we are grateful he came into our lives. When you finish reading his life story, you’ll feel like he has come into yours.”

JP Harris: "Honest music can still succeed without a huge financial or record-industry backing"

NH: Both your music and your life itself resemble the lives of many classic country singers, because you haven’t had an easy life—you’ve worked as a farm laborer, as an equipment operator, as a lumberjack, as a maker of instruments, as a carpenter...  Do you think that living a tough life gives you a different outlook on life that helps you sing and write songs?

 

JP Harris: Yes, indeed. Country music has always been really focused on the everyday struggles of the working person...I think this was what initially attracted me to it in the first place. There have been many great country singers and songwriters that have never really lived the life they sing about, but it seems true that most of the greats have dealt with some level of strife and defeat that has left its imprint on their music. 

 

NH: We noticed that your website isn’t really called after you, but you call it I Love Honky Tonk. Does this reflect your attitude toward music?

 

JP Harris: I wanted something simple, and to the point, like my music. The phrase is repeated in a lot of our social media and merchandise, and is a reference to a common styling (“I Heart Town Name,” etc.) that has been around in the US for many decades.
