From L.A. comes the latest release from the classic country/bluegrass band The Hollow Trees. Their new album titled "Hello Friend" will be released on July 1st through their own independent label, Hollow Trees Records. The new 14-song set begins with the fun, light-hearted polka of "What Do You Want On Your Taco" and the New Orleans jazz flavor of "Merry Go Round." The country strumming and sing-along lyrics of "I Can't Dance (I Got Ants In My Pants)" is very addictive and the waltz of "My Metaphor" will have you tapping your toes to the rhythm. The album finishes up with the classic bluegrass romp of "Poor Papa" and the sweet, gentle sounds of "The Harmony Hills."
