THE BOXMASTERS w Billy Bob Thornton - I Shot Him Down LIVE 04092015 @ MPAC Montgomery AL USA 7

All I have to say is a hater's gonna be a hater. This is one incredibly talented actor, singer, and overall friendliest person I've ever met. The Boxmasters live, play "I Shot Him Down" on April 9, 2015 at the Montgomery Performing Arts Centre, in fabulous downtown Montgomery, Alabama, USA. The Boxmasters is an American country rock/rockabilly band founded in Bellflower, California in 2007. It features Academy Award-winning actor Billy Bob "Bud" Thornton playing the drummer and vocalist, with J.D. Andrew on rhythm guitar, Danny Baker (aka Unknown Hinson) on bass guitar, Brad Davis doing vocals and playing lead guitar, and Micheal Wayne Butler on guitars and lap steel, and Teddy Andreadis. The group has released three albums on Vanguard Records, the first being the eponymous The Boxmasters and the second being the holiday album Christmas Cheer, in 2008. Their latest album "SOMEWHERE DOWN THE ROAD was released on April 7, 2015. Before he started The Boxmasters, frontman Thornton had played in two cover bands, worked as a roadie, and released four solo albums. After listening to "Yesterday's Gone" by Chad & Jeremy and thinking about covering it in a hillbilly music style, he had the idea of making Americanized version of British Invasion pop songs. During its early days, the band played several live shows in the California area, as well as in Tecate, Mexico. The group has covered The Beatles, The Who, The Rolling Stones, The Turtles, and Mott the Hoople in its unique style. It also plays original songs, mostly written or co-written by Thornton based on the "white trash" figures he had seen in his Arkansas childhood. MVI 7603
