Tune into the Weekend: Don Bryant & The Bo-Keys

Don’t let the name of the program fool you: this recent performance from singer/songwriter Don Bryant on PBS’ Bluegrass Underground just oozes with bluesy soul, with Bryant backed by The Bo-Keys for a number of songs off his new comeback album Don’t Give Up on Love (Fat Possum Records) — including Bryant’s take on the soul classic “A Nickel and a Nail” plus Bryant originals like “Something About You”, “I Got to Know” (previously recorded by The “5” Royales), and “How Do I Get There?” — as well as another well-known song Bryant co-wrote some years back with wife Ann Peebles called “I Can’t Stand the Rain”.

If you like what you hear here, you’ll want to be sure to check out the rest of Bryant’s new album, with tracks like the smooth, swaying “First You Cry” and punchy “Can’t Hide the Hurt” and “One Ain’t Enough” being the first we’d recommend!
