New Solo Effort By Our Frontman


Whaddup, ma Wreckers? As you may, nay, SHOULD know, yesterday was the launch of our very own songsmith's 7th, yes, SEVENTH solo album. Unbelievable how prolific Rhett is these days. Anywho, our frontman has been getting some great early press like this one from No Depression. If you haven't bought your own copy yet, here's a link to all the tracks of The Messenger courtesy of YouTube to tide you over until you get your paws on your own disc. And don't forget, the first ever Old 97's Christmas album drops next week!! And by the sounds of the first

Doreen, Doreen. Last Night I Had An Awful Dream


Celeste, Rose Marie, that lucky creature, Annette. Have you ever wondered if there are real, corporal counterparts to the women referenced in your favorite Old 97’s songs? Well, if you’ve ever stood next to a striking, flaxen-haired, Teutonic beauty in the front row, you’ve met Doreen. THE Doreen who has a penchant for downing whiskey sours and galloping through boroughs like a thoroughbred, in song anyway. The one and only, Dorin Meet Dorin Schadel, long-time fan from the band’s infancy. Originally from Boardman, Ohio, Dorin migrated south to Dallas in 1987 when her company relocated to Plano, Texas.
