Happy New Year!

Late 2009 through 2010 saw Cowboy Angel Music develop from a label releasing Adam Klein‘s music to a roster of six exciting and talented Athens-area acts. Thanks for the support, and stick with us as we continue to grow with sporadic releases and important community events like Athens Americana.

We’re gearing up for another exciting year for Cowboy Angel.

Here’s a quick run-down on our happenings..
Adam Klein & Justin Evans both have shows this month (see tour page). Adam‘s opening for a number of great singer/songwriters- Lucy Kaplansky, Fred Eaglesmith, and Stephen Simmons- at The White Mule (Columbia, SC) and Eddie’s Attic (Decatur, GA), plus a band show at the Caledonia Lounge in Athens. He’s leading a one-week service learning program in Nicaragua this month as well. And working on the Mali documentary film (a trailer is forthcoming!) and Mali album, Dugu Wolo, cover art/packaging. We call that busy.

Justin‘s playing at The freakin’ Earl (we love The Earl) in East Atlanta on Thurs. Jan. 27th and Athens’ Little Kings Sat. Jan. 29th. Got some sweet new songs, too.

From Daniel Aaron of Timber comes a beautiful Christmas song which we can’t post here. Email him at for some loveliness, if he’s so inclined.

Nutria‘s still all the rage. Check out these recent articles (this one and that one) and All Things Considered program on NPR. By now the band’s probably recorded two new kick ass double albums out at the Sonic Research Facility in Nicholson.

The Granfalloons have all been busy working on projects of both the musical and crawling kind. AJ Adams opened for George Jones and Loretta Lynn recently, on pedal steel with our friend Clay Leverett. And drummer Seth Hendershot has been crazy slammed of late with his new enterprise, the fantastic new Hendershot’s Coffee in Athens. Drop by for a cup, some great company, and excellent music!

In the meantime, Little Country Giants hosted one of the coolest New Year’s bashes around, yet another cool night on the farm in Ranger, GA, at their Chickenshack Honky Tonk. And Cameron’s been rockin’ with the new all-girls high heel stompin’ supergroup, BareKnuckle Betties! Check ‘em out at The 5 Spot in Atlanta on Fri. January 14th!

Get ready for Big C & The Ringers! More to come on that.

Visit the Tour page for show listings & come hang out soon!
