Kevn Kinney And Golden Palominos On World Cafe

Kevn Kinney of Drivin N Cryin and Anton Fier of The Golden Palominos combine the twangy side of their respective rock bands for an album aptly titled A Good Country Mile. Through the '80s rock scene, Kinney and Fier became friends and collaborators, and the trend continues more than 20 years later.

The sound of A Good Country Mile is unexpected, especially for Fier — it's a heavy, robust country album. Driven by the Palominos' addictive melodicism and Kinney's husky Southern vocals, the album rocks with pedal-steel guitar, ample harmonica and covers of country classics.

Hear the pair perform tracks from A Good Country Mile on today's episode of World Cafe.
