Just like any wolf pack, Angel Mary & The Tennessee werewolves work, play and hang together. They are after all, father, son and daughter. They are true clan and kin. As Father’s Day approaches, I bet you Mary and Christian are thinking about what they are going to give their Dad Antoine this year to get him howling?
I spoke to the three of them down at The City Center during the CMA Fest this year. I have to tell you that they had a great booth and they were certainly getting lots of attention from everybody that passed by. I walked around with them a bit and people took notice. Everybody knew that there was something special about them and that was way before anybody heard them play. They just have that, “IT,” factor you hear so much about. They are a very cool and unusual family but that is what makes them special.
We got to talking and this is what they had to say:
ALL OF THEM: HOWLING.
Q Yes they howl. That is how they greet people. They start off most every conversation that way and people love it. I said to them, this is not your first CMA Fest, it it?
A Nom this is actually our first year having our own booth at the CMA Fest. We finally got the stamp of approval from the CMA and we are here in our own booth. The previous year we were guests at the Kentucky Headhunters and we signed there and the year before that we were at Tootsies booth. So yeah, this year they have given us our own booth and we are excited to be back. We are even more excited to have our own booth.
Q And it’s a cool, cool booth.
A Thank you, we tried to do the sky and stars.
Q Yeah, the night sky of course because that is when you are out prowling?
A That’s right, that’s when we come out. We are actually going to be out tonight at the Wildhorse at 12:30 a.m.
Q Is there anybody else sharing the stage with you tonight?
A Bucky Covington and some others. I don’t remember all the rest.
Q That’s cool, that is a nice stage. Have you ever been on that stage before?
A No, we are looking forward to being there.
Q You are going to like it. It has a nice atmosphere and feel to the club. What is next in your career?
A We have been recording some new music and we are deciding which song is going to go out first. It is going to be a ballad. We are going to soften it up a touch for you. You know we already hit you hard with, “Cowboy,” and “Folson Prison Blues,” and now we are going to come in with something a little more tender. We are going to bring you some roses.
Q Is it romantic?
A Definitely romantic. It’s going to get you in the mood Donna.
Q That is so cute. All right well, you totally got me blushing and I don’t blush. I am from New York and we don’t blush. I didn’t expect that. You got me totally flustered.
I took a few minutes to compose myself while we chuckled at how Christian totally caught me off guard and threw me off my interview game. I love it. They are wonderful people and have a great kind of energy about them. I have to tell you that Angel Mary and the Tennessee Werewolves will do that to you too. They will knock you off your game, knock you out of your seat and knock your socks off. They are that good and that unique.
