It’s no secret that artists don’t always write their own songs. But this ’90s country music tribute band might be the biggest exception. From Alan Jackson to Garth Brooks, Brooks & Dunn to John Michael Montgomery, most of their biggest country radio hits were written by a group of young Texan musicians who years later teamed up as Straight Tequila Night. Now is your chance to listen to the artist behind all those songs you’ve been humming since the ’90s.
