 “…the British equivalent of Old Crow Medicine Show” - Your Life In a Song

Deep South (Coast) Country/Bluegrass four-piece Hometown Show return with their brand new single Texas is the Reason on July 22nd 2018.

It’s described as a mid-tempo Cash/Carter style number with a contemporary twist, the song takes you on the journey of a man, hitchhiking his way from Tennessee to Texas to find his true love.

Texas is the Reason is a modern take on the ‘storytelling’ Country style of old, with toe-tapping acoustic guitar, Tennessee Three style electric rhythm and blistering harmonica solos that create a sound influenced most notably by the likes of The Avett Brothers, Charlie Daniels and Hank Williams.

This sweet, amusing and entertaining acoustic driven ditty points its compass on a route from sandy coastlines to beaming city lights heading out to be with a kissed-her-lips-a-1000-times-girl-of-my-dreams beauty - I’m on my way! 

I’ll swim the oceans and walk the Appalachian Trail
I’d wade the Bayous 
Brave the rowdy barroom brawls
To have in you in my arms once more  

Self-penned by Matthew Harrison and recorded at The Foundry Studios in Portsmouth, this light-hearted number has a locked in time feel to it and is a real joy

Texas is the Reason will be available for digital-download and limited physical purchase from 22nd July 2018 from their website at
