Synopsis

Amazon.com's Best of 1999
These Georgia boys have old-school country down pat, full of whining pedal steel, biting guitar, and most importantly, Dave Marr's tortured vocals. Not for the weak of heart, Marr's songs update the tear-in-your-beer honky-tonk aesthetic, but they have an emotional depth and sincerity that make them stick in your head. --Marc Greilsamer

CD Reviews

Best country record all year
Charles C. Reece | Atlanta | 11/24/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I bought Why Do Lonely Men... at a Star Room Boys show here in Atlanta, and I thought it would be good, just a nice record to have, something I'd listen to once or twice and then put on the shelf. For the next eight weeks, it was all I could do to take it out of the CD player and listen to something else. It's just exquisite."
These guys are the real deal!
David | Portland, Oregon | 12/09/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an exquisite album. In fact, it may be the best album I've heard in several years. There isn't a bad song in the bunch. Like Joe Ely, these guys are so good, it's no wonder you'll never hear them on the radio (although I have a hunch the late, great KFAT in Gilroy, CA would have played them)."
#1 Fan from Louisiana!

"Even though I had the opportunity to meet a member of the band, and instantly met a life long friend. I did not realize that I would be listening to their entire CD over and over again on my 12 hour trip from Georgia to Louisiana. They have one of the most intriguing sounds I have heard in a LONG time, and they are becoming quite a favorite in my home town. Way to go Star Room Boys! Keep up the AWESOME JOB!"
