Do you like country-rock music that is so stereotypically country-rock it actually sounds like a joke? Well, you’ll love the new EP from former-Phillie Brett Myers, called “Backwoods Rebel.” Or, as NBC Sports’ Craig Calcaterra put it in his fantastic lede: “If you thought that league average pitching and overlooked domestic violence was all that Brett Myers was about, you couldn’t be more wrong. He’s also a singer.”
The track list reads like a call for help — or cast-offs from a “Mr. Show” sketch — including tracks “I Need a Drink,” “Beer Hand Strong,” and lead single “Kegerator.” The EP also features the song “Chasing Tail,” for the ladies. As Myers’ website reads, Myers has been writing songs for years, but it wasn’t until his musician friend was “blown away by his clever concepts,” that they got together to create the “perfect blend of Southern Rock and Country with witty lyrics about drinking and life in the woods.”
Myers’ site says his album is “available everywhere now,” but everywhere doesn’t seem to include the U.S. version of iTunes or any store in the entire world. You can buy it for $6 on CDbaby.
