"Duck Dynasty" member releases EP

Tuesday, November 21, 2017 – Uncle Si Robertson "Duck Dynasty" fame will release an EP with his band Uncle Si & the Sicotics on Cold River Records on Dec. 15.

The collection is the brainchild of Uncle Si, his daughter-in-law Marsha Robertson and Bridgette Tatum, writer of Jason Aldean's number one hit "She's Country." The disc is a mixture of country, hip hop, rock and Southern gospel.

"It's the music we were all raised on from back-porch picking to roadhouse guitar riffs," said Tatum, who produced and co-wrote the project with Uncle Si and Robertson along with being an integral part of the trio. "It is music that tells a story about family, faith and fun."

"We got a band, Randy - what we needs now is a payin' gig," said Uncle Si, making a hysterical reference to the 1996 Billy Bob Thornton movie "Sling Blade."

A veteran of the U.S. Army, Uncle Si was born Silas Merritt Robertson. He and his brother, Phil, are the bearded patriarchs of the family behind the Duck Commander brand, a company specializing in the sale of hunting gear and the companion reality series on A&E "Duck Dynasty."

Uncle Si & The Sicotics formed in late 2016. The first song Tatum wrote with Uncle Si and Robertson was inspired by her allergy to duck feathers.

These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Despite small crowd, Hood accomplishes mission – It would have been quite easy to think that Adam Hood would have mailed in this gig. It could not have been easy to make your debut in the Boston area after putting out seven albums, not to mention having songs picked by A list artists, and having maybe 25 people show up. If the Alabama native was dissuaded by the small crowd, he did not show it.... »»»
Concert Review: Pistol Annies hit the targets – Pistol Annies, the all-star trio comprised of Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley, made the last stop of its short tour a downtown Los Angeles date. This was the last show, that is, until after the pregnant Presley gives birth to her child. Traveling in support of the act's third album "Interstate Gospel," these talented... »»»
