Give Bonnie Montgomery A Dollar (and twenty-nine cents)

This week’s featured track is “Take Me or Leave Me,” one of my favorites from Bonnie Montgomery’s self-titled first album. “Take Me…” is a standout cut on a record that doesn’t have a single dud or even a filler track on it. It’s a glorious throwback to the days of “outlaw” country music and sounds about ten times tougher than anything by some pretty boy singing about his truck, or beer, or tight blue jeans that you’ll hear on country radio today.

“Take Me or Leave Me” is available on iTunes for $1.29. CD copies of Bonnie Montgomery are available at Arkansas CD & Record Exchange on MacArthur Drive in North Little Rock.

Bonnie is playing this Thursday night in a trio with Amy Garland Angel and Mandy McBryde as The Wildflowers. They are opening up for Billy Joe Shaver, one of the original country music outlaws, at the White Water Tavern.
