It’s been 20 years since the band’s “American Farewell tour,” but it seems that even the death of co-founder Jeff Cook in November won’t stop Randy Owen and Teddy Gentry from carrying the torch.

While new material seems unlikely, the 55-year-old country outfit’s hits are timeless in the twangy community, and the guys’ stop at the Hard Rock on Thursday, April 27, will definitely be a change from the nostalgia cruises and tours.

Boomers can still be snag tickets at, but they are all pretty much $200 a pop.
