This week KRFC is sharing two groups that herald the Centennial State in their work. Head over here for our second share of the day.

Bonnie & The Clydes have been making big strides in their effort to take the “Colorado county” sound of their latest release, “Wrong Side Up” to the airwaves of Americana stations across the nation. Not only have they been enjoying the national exposure, but their success also helps break down the idea that Colorado is the middle of nowhere in the music industry.

There’s nothing I can tell you about the band’s sound that Brian F. Johnson didn’t cover quite eloquently in December 2012’s Marquee Magazine.

“Colorado country,” in one fell swoop she […] conveys everything from second generation country musicians of the 1930s and ’40s to the blend of Western swing, country boogie, and honky tonk of the 1960s and 1970s country — and just for sh*ts and giggles, Sims throws in a little yodeling as well.

Here is my favorite example of the distinctly Colorado country flair that Bonnie & The Clydes deliver. While you’re listening, you should visit their impressive website and read more about these great artists in our community: Bonnie Sims, Taylor Sims, Chris Ramey, Nancy Steinberger, Michael Schenkleberg.

You can get a copy of “Wrong Side Up” over here.
