Casey here with my DJ pick of the week from The Reverend Horton Heat and their brand new single “Whole New Life.”

The track is our first preview of the psychobilly trio’s forthcoming album of the same name due out Nov. 30. Formed in 1985, the band exploded on the scene by playing gigs around their hometown of Dallas, Texas, mixing elements of surf, country, punk, big band and rockabilly to create a genre that took the world by storm. Often imitated, never duplicated, the Reverend has continued to garner the support of both the underground rockabilly/ psychobilly scene and mainstream critics. Throughout the band’s million plus album selling career, their music has been featured in countless TV shows, movies and commercials, it’s impossible to deny the powerful force that is The Reverend Horton Heat. They continue to electrify audiences time and time again with their incredible stage presence, rock ‘n roll charisma and contagious energy.

Listen to “Whole New Life” below and let us know what you think!

Casey is that rarest of creatures…a Native Tennesseean. His love of music can be traced to the day his dad sat him down and played him Bo Diddley’s “Who Do You Love?” Everything pretty much changed after that. He began his broadcasting career at the age of 14 at an AM station in Northern Middle Tennessee. It was there he learned how to cue vinyl records, splice tape with razor blades, and other skills that no longer serve any purpose. In the late nineties, he was the host of our evening show until management decided that probably wasn’t a good idea anymore. Casey returned to Nashville airwaves in 2016. When he isn’t on the air, he spends his time with his wife and son. He would also appreciate it if you’d get offa his lawn.
