Howdy Friends and Neighbors,
First off, I would like to say that we sure miss being out and playing live music, but due to the current global pandemic we do not have any dates currently on the books. That being said, we are still making music and more fired up than ever to get back to playing for you all as soon as we can do it safely. In the meantime, we'll be writing songs and getting ready for whatever happens next! We've also got a album of new original material and will start recording that as soon as it is safe for us all to get together. We're also going to be doing our best to get some new content out there for you: so you don't forget about us!
Speaking of new content, there will be six new videos playing on the Honkytonk Basement Facebook and Instagram pages, and links posted to your FB/IG pages as well. We recorded these back late February and performed a few songs from the I Hope He Breaks Your Heart Lp and a few ones that will be on the next record! Check em out!
Unfortunately, the company that distributed our physical records and compact discs had decided to concentrate solely on digital distribution. Currently, you can find our music on a number of online sites digitally (Itunes, Spotify, Pandora, Amazon, and so on), but we're still trying to put together an online store that will allow us to ship our records, compact discs, tshirts, hats, and other merchandise directly to you! In the meantime, feel free to use the contact us feature on this website to inquire about a purchase and we'll do our best to make it happen!

“It's more than just fashionable fools donning cowboy hats and bolo ties—the music of classic country has also been in the throes of a pocketed resurgence. Indie musicians in their 30s have started paring down their layers, adding pedal steel, and discovering folks like George Jones, Buck Owens, and Merle Haggard—songwriters who did more with less. The johnny-come-latelys would do well to take a gander at Countryside Ride, who aren't old-timers, but spot-on, honky-tonk preservationists capable of teaching a master class. The Clark County, Washington, group knows what it takes to make a great bar band: For a decade they've played mostly covers with easy, ego-less finesse and aplomb. From the plunking stand-up bass, to the swinging, minimalist drums, to the crisp, plucky Telecaster twang, to the love-sick croon and hootin' hollers, Countryside Ride is as timeless and sturdy as their vernacular.” — ANDREW R TONRY, The Portland Mercury
