|AUSTIN, TEXAS (June 11, 2020) — County Singer Drew Fish welcomes his pal Django Walker to “Neon Mondays,” Fish’s weekly Instagram program . The show has been growing in popularity as Fish invites a different peer each week to talk shop and trade a few songs. Fish created the show as the country began shuttering in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Tune in Monday, June 15 at 6:30 p.m. Central Time to https://www.instagram.com/drewfishband/?hl=en|
“I’m excited to hear what stories Django is gonna have to tell,” Fish said. “It seems like every time I hear a new one, he’s got something even bigger and better than the time before.”
Walker, the son of legendary Texas artist Jerry Jeff Walker, is stepping out of the shadow of inherited celebrity and into the sunlight of his own musical identity. Django grew up in a house where music was an integral part of everyday life. Citing Coldplay and Tom Petty, along with Lone Star singer-songwriters including his father, Guy Clark, Pat Green and others; Django epitomizes the mix of eclectic musical influences that has always characterized the maverick independence of Texas music.
Fish has been celebrating this week’s news that his current single, “Every Damn Time,” (featuring Country Singer Pam Tillis), is sitting on top of the Texas Regional Radio Charts. “Every Damn Time” — written by Fish and noted songwriters Roger Brown and Chris Colston — has been jumping up the charts for the past several weeks. On the charts for nearly five month.
“When you write a song, you always hope that it’s going to mean as much to the listener as it does to you,” Fish said. “I’m so happy that ‘Every Damn Time’ was something that people could connect with.”.”
“Fish stands out among Texas roadhouse-circuit regulars with music that leans more heavily toward traditional country than the more typical country-rock hybrids. Fish shines brightly on the beautiful waltz “Every Damn Time,” wisely rendered as a duet with angelic-voiced country hitmaker Pam Tillis.
