The album is here. Reviews are pouring in. Radio stations are playing it.

Thank you for time, money, and support you gave us during this sometimes difficult journey. We lost a good friend. We found a great drummer. We started a very successful residency. We got this beautiful record out to the world.

A few great things have happened this week. Blue Ridge Outdoors put us in the first spot on their Trail Mix playlist, along with Reverend Horton Heat, Tellico, and so many other great artists.

Americana Highways premiered this really fun video for Temporary Tattoo:

Henry Carrigan interviewed me for No Depression about what I’m reading and why:

Then he wrote this incredible review of the album:

“Byrd is a poet of the people” and that’s all I ever wanted.


Jonathan Byrd & The Pickup Cowboys is now available on Bandcamp! It's the only place to download full-quality digital audio files AND it's the digital source that pays us the most. If you order the beautiful 64-page booklet through Bandcamp, you'll get an immediate download of the album while you wait.

And of course, you can always get it straight from me. Johnny and I will sign it and send it to your box.


We’ve got a short run out west coming up and we’re bringing Jonathan Byrd & The Pickup Cowboys with us!
