Vinnie Paul Reunited with Dime

I woke up today to hear of yet another one of my rock n roll heroes has left this life too soon.  Vinnie Paul is dead at the age of 54.  Vinnie joins his brother Dime in the after life.   Our heart goes out to all his surviving family and friends.  The brothers were legendary hosts for countless memories and good times.  I have a guitar named after Dime named Diamonds with a Jagermeister label laminated on the back of it from one of the bottles I shared with the brothers back in what some would say was there musical peak.  I say go out and makes some memories with some friends.  Live the life that will live on in all of the souls you touched while you walked in it.  Rest in Peace Vinnie Paul you won't be forgotten. 

Thank you for all the amazing music.

April 6th brings For Stories

It's only 31 Days away from our release party at Mayslacks April 6th we will have For Stories, Trifecta, The Sequel and the self titled debut, along with other assorted goodies not to mention The GooDBarS, friends and family. 

If you can't make the show we hope you'll grab the preorder on iTunes.  Just to the right of this page and every page on this site is an opportunity to support what we love to do.  Make music. 

For Stories could have been called Four Stories as there are indeed 4 songs featured on the EP 1) Until Someone Remembers My Name 2) When Love Goes to War 3) Faster Than They Fall In 4) Before You're Gone.  It's also why we play in the bars, the barns, sheds, street dances, weddings and festivals.  For Stories and memories we've made with family and friends this is dedicated to you guys and those of you who choose to support us.

We have 2 songs demoed in TheDirtyCountryFamily on FB

If you haven't decided to join and want to see the process of making "For Stories" we strongly encourage you to Click Link Above

It is a closed group but If you let us know you found out about the group through 

"The Dirty" we will gladly usher you in 

We Started recording last Sunday at Undertone Music in Minneapolis so besides the demos already posted you'll get to see some pics and video clips of the process of making our new release "For Stories" which will include the following Tracks:

1) Unitl Someone Remembers My Name - this song started out as a nod to one of my favorite country music outlaws David Alan Coe and is turning out to be much more than I invisioned.


2) When Love Goes To War - The struggle is real and in some relationships never ending.  Didn't have to look to far for the inspiration for this song


3) Faster Than They Fall In - this song exploits the unusal habits of bad relationships in general


4) Before You're Gone - I wrote this song as a reply of sorts to Highway to Hell as much as I like the song I'd rather see my friends up in heaven singing along together.  I'm hoping the polka song in Heaven There Is No Beer was wrong. 


Just in case you missed the one above I put this one here for another shot at it

We head into the studio to start working on "Four Stories" in less than 2 weeks.  If you want to see our progress and hear some of the new music you'll want to join TheDirtyCountryFamily there is a link to the closed group on Facebook in the original confirmation email for signing up as well or press the blue button (Visit Group) from Mark Stone and the Dirty Country Band's Facebook Page
