This blog sometimes has a mind of it's own.
Without consciously trying the last three Friday's have seen songs with a Country twang about them.
So we might as well go for four in a row.
Big in Iowa are not actually from Iowa but from Hamilton, Ohio (as opposed to Hamilton, South Lanarkshire).
They have a song called Hamiltucky Honky Tonk Hero the title of which probably sums them up better than I ever could.
Like many Americana bands they found a spiritual home courtesy of the great German record label Blue Rose.
They are, I suspect, also big Neil Young fans given their faithful cover of Cinnamon Girl (Blue Rose Collection Vol 5) and their observation that Neil's on the Radio (Blue Rose Collection Vol 7 -disc1)
And just to prove there is more to them than a love of Neil here is Shame Shame Shame (Blue Rose Collection Vol 7 -disc2)
Big in Iowa - Cinnamon Girl
