About the Album
Paul Chet and The Whiskey Chickens was formed through a string of serendipitous events. Paul Chet opened for Aaron Watson in 2013 and needed a fiddler on stage with him. From that collaboration, they have gathered some of the best musicians on the front range of Colorado to create a truly top-shelf country band. The Whiskey Chickens perform throughout Northern Colorado and Wyoming regularly selling out the house. Chet’s voice and Wickam’s arrangements combine to create a fresh signature sound that pleases ears of all types. The songs chosen for this album represent audience favorites over the past 5 years of performing.
4. Mr. Bojangles (Jerry Jeff Walker) – Folk Friendly
Paul: First time I remember hearing Mr Bojangles was in the late 1980’s by a dear and local Fort Collins artist named Shirley Carter and she was magic! I knew I wanted to cover this tune!
Vi: I grew up listening to the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band playing this song. It has long been one of my favorites.
