Gary Stewart

If you're looking for someone who's genetically engineered to provide the perfect sound track for a night of boot-scootin' and beer-drinkin', Gary Stewart is your man. Who can forget his classic '70s cuts "She's Actin' Single (I'm Drinkin' Doubles)" and "Drinkin' Thing"? Tightly restricted country radio playlists and Nashville's Music Row schlock factory haven't seen or heard the likes of this hard-edged honky-tonk country in decades. Music this real has to be sought out in the roadhouses Texas is famous for. As his song says, "Let's Go Jukin'."
