I mean what else do you need to know?Goose Creek recording artists, Ruthie & the Wranglers, play rockin' American Roots music (also known as FUN!) and are based in the Washington DC area. From original Americana Country to rousing Surf instrumentals, their clever lyrics, high energy and spritely hillbilly harmonies set them apart from the rest.The band has just released their sixth CD, Ruthie and the Wranglers LIVE at Goose Creek which was recorded live at the Franklin Park Arts Center in Purcellville, VA.On the new LIVE CD, Surftilicus shows off guitarist Andy Rutherford and the tune, being standout at live shows, made it a must to include on the LIVE CD. Pianist Bill Starks adds his timely sing-along anthem about staying “one step ahead of the Repo Man” and a lonesome love song “300 Miles to Memphis” and Ruthie’s “Ka-Ching” ribs you with it’s tongue and cheek delivery about one way to get rich off of a rocky relationship. Goose Creek's recording prowess and stage production have captured the raw energy and excitement that only a live show can foster. A well-balanced variety of original tracks featuring all 3 songwriters and vocalists make for a fantastic one-stop listening experience for Wrangler fans. The CD also includes a rousing version of (Ruthie's hero) Loretta Lynn's "You Wanna Give Me a Lift" and a rock 'em sock 'em do over of "I Got a Rocket in My Pocket" made famous by NRBQ and Johnny Horton—penned by Ruthie's 3rd cousin Jimmie Logsdon. The Rock and Roll swing style of “Ka-Ching,” the humor in “I’m So Sad Since You Left Me” and the lament “Last Morning,” keep the album sparkling with diversity.Ruthie and The Wranglers’ past albums have consistently ranked high on Americana, Folk and Roots music radio charts around the world. Their clever songwriting skills were penned by Billboard Magazine as “...nothing short of brilliant.”Lead vocalist and songwriter, Ruthie Logsdon and her band have racked up more than 25 WAMMIES including Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, Female Country Vocalist and Songwriter of the Year from the Washington Area Music Association (WAMA). The group also includes Greg Hardin, bassist, vocalist, and key songwriter, bringing his lead vocals, backing harmonies and bullseye bass guitar beat to the band’s primo show. Greg has a passion for creating timeless lyrics with true musical spirit—his song "I Say Tomato" and "Lost Ball in the High Weeds" were both featured in independent films and "Babe Ruth's Piano" was named 2004 Song of the Year by WAMA. Lead guitarist and award winning multi-instrumentalist (elec. guitar, baritone guitar and steel guitar), Andy Rutherford (Texan guitar slinger Jim Stringer will be the guitarist on this show); pianist/vocalist/key songwriter, Bill Starks; and drummer Robbie Magruder (Mary Chapin Carpenter/Lowen and Navarro) set the standard for quality musician-ship and high-powered “rock-ability."
