Join us now as those Legendary Shack Shakers
mark their 25th anniversary as a band on Earth! To celebrate, they’ve welcomed former members to record and ALL COUNTRY & WESTERN
album! That’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, the Shack Shakers
have also invited a few local legends to “pick & grin”. Kentucky stalwarts like Stanley Walker
(Grand Ole Opry bandleader for Jean Shepard/Sun Studio guitarist for “Rockin’” Ray Smith
) and Jack Martin
(dobro-player for Lester Flatt
) really give “them young ‘uns” a run for their money! And the always-ornery “Hillbilly” Bob Prather
(Cajun fiddler and runnin’ buddy of One Wheeler
) pitches in too! Just add the Dead Kennedys’ Jello Biafra
, hillbilly royalty Chris Scruggs
and an Old Crow Medicine Showman and you’ve got a recipe for what could ONLY be a Legendary Shack Shakers
Titling it Cockadoodledeux was admittedly, done as a reference to 2002’s legendary Cockadoodledon’t, an album which many fans were first made aware of the group. Indeed, this record was designed to bookend that other album. Cockadoodledeux serves to signal a bold new era. Just as the plucky, two-headed chick emerges from it’s egg on the cover, so too begins a fresh start for the bands’s creative energies. A millennium of fans both young and old, once again, get to lean in, listen and – as always – expect the unexpected!
This bundle includes Cockadoodledeux CD, as well as the exclusive Cocadoodledeux T-shirt, and an autographed copy of vocalist J.D. Wilkes critically acclaimed novel The Vine That Ate The South!
About The Vine That Ate The South: In a forgotten corner of western Kentucky lies a haunted forest referred to locally as “The Deadening,” where vampire cults roam wild and time is immaterial. Our protagonist and his accomplice—the one and only, Carver Canute—set out down the Old Spur Line in search of the legendary Kudzu House, where an old couple is purported to have been swallowed whole by a hungry vine. Their quest leads them face to face with albino panthers, Great Dane-riding girls, protective property owners, and just about every American folk-demon ever, while forcing the protagonist to finally take stock of his relationship with his father and the man’s mysterious disappearance.
