The Wood Brothers 2011 Tour Dates and New Album

The Wood Brothers have put together a nice late summer/early fall tour in support of their new album, Smoke Ring Halo, which was produced by Jim Scott (Johnny Cash, Tom Petty) and released on Southern Ground Artists (Zac Brown’s independent label).

I’m digging this little promo video they put together featuring the tune “Shoofly Pie.” I’ve always heard good things about their live show, so I think this should be good gig to catch…
