Jack Russell’s Great White represents the next phase of a legacy.
Rather than look backwards and merely attempt to relive the multi-platinum hard rock entity’s storied origins, Jack Russell set his sights on the future. In December 2011, Jack Russell’s Great White first bared its teeth. Since its inception, the frontman welcomed back longtime bassist and friend Tony Montana—this time as a guitar player and keyboardist—lead guitarist Robby Lochner, and drummer Ken Mary. Now, this group has a sharp, soaring, and slick new album on the horizon for 2014 boasting the bluesy hard rock stomp that made Russell and Montana icons in the first place.
The vision became clear for the singer once Montana returned to the fold. After experimenting with a various configurations, he reconnected with his old bassist, but in a different role.
“It’s a powerful band,” Russell proclaims.

Gary P. Nunn has been TAKING TEXAS TO THE COUNTRY and Texas country to the world for some 40 years now, establishing himself as an icon of Lone Star music. A founding father of the progressive country movement out of Austin in the 1970s that changed the face of popular music, Nunn is also an independent music pioneer who continues to oversee his own record label and song publishing companies, manage his own career (with the help of his wife Ruth), and play most every weekend at top music venues throughout Texas and beyond. His composition “London Homesick Blues” — with its internationally known “I wanna go home with the Armadillo” chorus — is a signature Texas country song that was the theme for the PBS concert TV show “Austin City Limits” for nearly three decades. It’s no wonder that All Music Guide hails him as “a Texas music institution.”
The Bellamy Brothers are defined by "Let Your Love Flow," the easy-rolling, soft rock classic that topped the Billboard Hot 100 in 1976. At the time, the duo were aligned with the sunbleached sound that became known as yacht rock but instead of moving in a pop direction, the Bellamy Brothers positioned themselves as a mellow country-pop act beginning with the breezy island vibes of "If I Said You Have a Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me." That song topped the Billboard Country chart in 1979, opening up a string of Top Ten hits that ran into 1990, a run that featured nine additional number one hits including "Sugar Daddy," "Dancin' Cowboys," "Do You Love as Good as You Look," "For All the Wrong Reasons," and "Redneck Girl." Throughout this period, the Bellamys would dabble in styles outside of country music, dressing their good-time country-pop with elements of disco, rock, reggae, and island music, even singing a tongue-in-cheek "Country Rap" in 1987. This low-key sense of adventure persisted in the Bellamy Brothers even after they stopped having hits in the early 1900s. The pair continued to play live and record, seizing such unexpected opportunities as re-recording their classic hits with an Austrian schlager DJ called DJ Otzi and collaborating with Swiss rocker Gola on a new version of "Let Your Love Flow" in 2010. Throughout it all, the Bellamy Brothers maintained a connection to their breezy country-pop roots, releasing such songs as "Boobs" in 2014 and the John Anderson duet "No Country Music for Old Men" in 2020.
