Howdy There, Too-Tall

By: Laurie Gallardo

No two ways about it. Corey Baum gives it to you straight, with no interest in small talk. In other words, the Austin-based songwriter has no time for b.s.

His band Croy and The Boys‘ new LP, Howdy High Rise, just released on Spaceflight Records, delivers true blue country with a bite – that’s a sharp eye, sharp wit, and equally-sharp delivery. Baum calls out the challenges and injustices most of humanity faces in day-to-day existence, in the ATX and beyond. And Baum doesn’t hold back – which is why it’s so damn good.

Wouldn’t have it any other way. Soak it all in when you see Croy and The Boys at their album release show tonight at Sam’s Town Point, 2115 Allred Dr. Lew Card starts the evening early at 7:30 p.m., followed by Croy and The Boys at 10 p.m., and Ramsay Midwood at 11:30 p.m. So recommended.
