Two Releases for Record Store Day: Waylon Jennings And Mick Foley

Waylon Jennings and Mick Foley

Black Country Rock partners with independent record stores nationally and announces two diverse Black Friday releases from country music icon Waylon Jennings and WWE Superstar Mick Foley.

“Louisiana Man, Kentucky Woman” is a collection of three unreleased 70’s-era tracks from Waylon Jennings. Originally intended for an exclusive Navy radio release and recorded at Scotty Moore’s “Music City Records” – these tracks feature Jennings in top form being backed by The Waylors. Of undeniable interest to aficionados of country music and deep cuts, this release will be available on limited-edition white 7″ vinyl on Black Friday.

“Crazy Christmas” is a spoken-word Christmas narrative told by New York Times Best Selling author and Hardcore Wrestling Legend Mick Foley, written by 10-year-old son Hugh Foley, with music and sound effects composed by Shooter Jennings.

“Narrating ‘Crazy Christmas’, the story my youngest son wrote as a gift for Santa Claus, was one of the joys of my life.” Foley said. “We handed our special holiday project off to Shooter Jennings, who took it on a wild and charming ride. I hope this collaboration with Shooter brings listeners the same sense of joy it has brought to me.”

“Crazy Christmas” will be available on limited-edition white 7″ vinyl on Black Friday, as well as available on iTunes beginning December 9, 2014.

Black Country Rock is multi-format record label and a proud supporter of independent music, brick and mortar stores, tangible goods, and advanced technology. To find a record store near you that will be carrying these releases please visit RecordStoreDay.com

The dual single package offers the first taste of this young new band. Produced by Shooter Jennings, Symbols & Snares shows off a diverse and inventive young roots band on their way out of obscurity and into the minds and hearts of music-lovers everywhere.

“The best thing about Katy (Cole) and her voice and songs is that, one minute it reminds me of something you would get from Florence & the Machine and the next minute it might be a beautiful country ballad. Then something reminiscent of Nine Inch Nails will pop up on the record. It’s so unpredictable, which is the way I like my music. I was really glad they asked me to be a part of this project and I’m very proud of the record we’ve been making this year.”
