Join us now as thoseÂ Legendary Shack ShakersÂ mark their 25th anniversary as a band on Earth! To celebrate, theyâ€™ve welcomed former members to record andÂ ALL COUNTRY & WESTERNalbum! Thatâ€™s right! From Spaghetti Western to Bluegrass, Western Swing to Rockabilly, Tex-Mex to Americana, the variety of the genre is on full display here friends!
Always ones to respect their history, theÂ Shack ShakersÂ have also invited a few local legends to â€œpick & grinâ€. Kentucky stalwarts likeÂ Stanley WalkerÂ (Grand Ole Opry bandleader for Jean Shepard/Sun Studio guitarist for â€œRockinâ€™â€ Ray Smith) andÂ Jack MartinÂ (dobro-player for Lester Flatt) really give â€œthem young â€˜unsâ€ a run for their money! And the always-orneryÂ â€œHillbillyâ€ Bob PratherÂ (Cajun fiddler and runninâ€™ buddy of One Wheeler) pitches in too! Just add the Dead Kennedysâ€™Â Jello Biafra, hillbilly royaltyÂ Chris ScruggsÂ and an Old Crow Medicine Showman and youâ€™ve got a recipe for what could ONLY be aÂ Legendary Shack ShakersÂ album!
Titling itÂ CockadoodledeuxÂ was admittedly, done as a reference to 2002â€™s legendaryÂ Cockadoodledonâ€™t, an album which many fans were first made aware of the group. Indeed, this record was designed to bookend that other album.Â CockadoodledeuxÂ serves to signal a bold new era. Just as the plucky, two-headed chick emerges from itâ€™s egg on the cover, so too begins a fresh start for the bandsâ€™s creative energies. A millennium of fans both young and old, once again, get to lean in, listen and â€“ as always â€“ expect the unexpected!
