Nashville Rock Group Country Westerns Inks Deal With Fat Possum Records

Country Westerns

Nashville rock group Country Westerns have signed with Oxford, Mississippi-based indie label Fat Possum Records and will debut their self-titled project on May 1.

Fellow Nashville-based artist Soccer Mommy also released her 2018 album Clean via the same label, before joining with Loma Vista for her upcoming album, Color Theory.

Country Westerns includes drummer Brian Kotzur, who was previously a member of the band Silver Jews. The band’s singer/songwriter/guitarist Joseph Plunket previously led Brooklyn band The Weight and held a side gig as a bass palyer for Atlanta’s Gentleman Jesse. Plunket and Kotzur met after Plunket moved to Nashville more than a decade ago and opened a bar. They began recording and eventually added bass player Sabrina Rush.

The first recordings with the complete lineup were made in Nashville with engineer Andrija Tokic, but the band later set out to New York to record with Matt Sweeney at Brooklyn’s Strange Weather Studios, alongside Daniel Schlett. Those recordings would find their way to the staff at Fat Possum Records, who offered the band a deal.
