Red Dirt tells the story of a music scene in vivid detail, from its early days in Oklahoma to an era of young Texas-based artists such as Reckless Kelly, Wade Bowen and Randy Rogers forming friendships with Oklahoman bands like Cross Canadian Ragweed and Jason Boland & The Stragglers, to the modern era in which Red Dirt has exploded across the nation and is an important cog in the Texas Music machine.
The book chronicles the origins and rise of Reckless Kelly, from Cody and Willy's childhood in Idaho to their barnstorming days in Austin, the rise of their brothers Micky and the Motorcars, and brings the story full-circle by chronicling the annual Braun Brothers Reunion, one of the most important festivals in Red Dirt. The Reckless Kelly Artist's Edition is an exclusive, expanded release featuring a bonus chapter dedicated to the career and musical stylings of Reckless Kelly. The edition comes with a one-of-a-kind commemorative cover and an extra photo gallery featuring the band.
