Just some good ole’ boys sitting in a barn picken on some guitars. It can’t get better than that. The performance Lance Stinson puts on is enough to bring home the cows. Backed up by Jimmy Wayne Renfro. In 5 words I’d say, “Some Good Ole‘Country Boys,” would sum it up. Check out what Lance had to say during our interview.

What are some of your best musical memories?
At the age of 19, it was my first gig playing at the county fair. There were tables set up with paper table cloths and had candles on each table. I got so caught up in the music and the crowd cheering me on…. I stepped off the stage and stood on top of one of the tables during a song, knocked over a candle, and caught the table on fire.
“Now that is something I will never forget!”

Do you get nervous before a performance?
No.“I get excited.”
Do you attend jam sessions?
Not really….. I like to be well organized and rehearsed. When fans come out to a show, I want to give them my best and not be a “fly by the seat of my pants” artist. They are paying to see a show and that is what I will give them.
“Something they can walk away with and always remember.”
How do you handle mistakes during a performance?
First, try not to make it obvious.
Who’s your biggest supporter?
My mom. 🙂
What’s your favorite song to do and why?
“Taillights & Dust.” “It’s fun and energetic.”
Reminds me of where I grew up and my deep southern roots.
