Sweatshop Artists 'The Muddy Magnolias' Killin It!

For the past few months The SweatShop has been going non stop turning out great work, which means no time to keep up with the posts.  So here are the last few months condensed.

Jason White and I have been working with two talented ladies that started as studio/backup singers in January.  In the middle of beginning Jason's record he had a girl named Kallie North come over to sing a demo and she invited her friend Jess Wilson over to sing some BGVs.  By the end of the session everyone was buzzing with excitement and they decided, from the strength of what we came out with to form a duo.  A couple demos and name changes later they immerged as The Muddy Magnolias and are quickly gaining momentum.  That sounds like hype, but we all went down to Key West for the BMI songwriters festival to debut the duo (Jason on guitar and yours truely on Keys) and they were well recieved.  After returning and playing a handful of shows, Rollingstone.com listed them as THE BEST UNSIGNED DUO AT CMA FEST!!!
