Nashville rockers Country Westerns have shared “I’m Not Ready” and its accompanying video — which finds itself halfway between loving tribute and knowing parody of Pink Floyd’s legendary Live From Pompeii film — from their self-titled debut album (out June 26, 2020 on Fat Possum Records).
Even if you don’t know their names, you likely know their work. Drummer Brian Kotzur starred in Harmony Korine’s film Trash Humpers and was a member of Silver Jews. Singer, guitarist, and songwriter Joseph Plunket led Brooklyn legends The Weight, with a bass-playing side-hustle for Atlanta’s Gentleman Jesse. Plunket relocated to Nashville ten years ago and opened a bar. It was there, in a town teeming with solo artists and hired guns, that the two bonded over their shared desire to be in an actual band.
