Chick band 'Cowboy Crush' plays CDB music

: "There will be hand clapping and foot stomping Saturday night at the Pratt County Fair when Cowboy Crush, a five-member, all-female band from Nashville takes the stage with their high-energy country music show.

'It's an extremely energetic show,' said lead singer Trenna Barnes. 'It's a combination of Charlie Daniels, Emmylou Harris with a little bit of Aerosmith mixed in.'

Unlike other so-called bands, this group of ladies sing and play instruments and play them well. Before forming the band two years ago, they had each established themselves as outstanding performers.

They were pretty sure they had something special in the way of a band when a representative of Curb Asylum Records came to hear them perform in a member's garage and were offered a contract before the band even had a name, Barnes said.

The performers the individual members have worked with reads like a who's who of country music. They have performed with or opened for Charlie Daniels (the groups favorite), George Jones, Alabama, Garth Brooks, George Strait, Vince Gill, Travis Tritt, Martina McBride, Leanne Womack, Confederate Road, Pam Tillis, Lonestar, Little Jimmy Dickens, Ray Price, George Jones, Allison Krauss and many more. "

These chicks managed to get Charlie Daniels mentioned four times on the front page of a newspaper in Kansas, and that should be advertisement for them enough. They say the CDB is their favorite band, too, so they must be good. At least we know they have good taste. If you're in Kansas, make the show!
