Surprising Finds from Kentucky Band Fifth on the Floor's Aaron Graham's Music Collection

When the weather in South Florida starts to heat up, we locals get the hell out and go places, far away, very foreign places like Alaska. Recently when heading up on such a trip to Kentucky to visit Southern relatives, word came to us that a musical act from the Bluegrass State was making their way to Lake Worth's Speakeasy Lounge.

Fifth on the Floor is coming counter-intuitively south to perform with Reckless Dames this Monday night. Drummer Aaron Graham was kind enough to allow us a peek into his musical mind by allowing us to critique his CD collection. Here are five of the most curious albums we found on the shelf of an authentic country rocker.

Much Mastodon;
5. Mastodon's Leviathan
"Originally," Graham admits, "I wasn't interested in playing country. I was really into heavy metal."

If it's from the Cracker Barrel, you know it's good.
4. Winifred Horan and Friends' Pleasures of Home
"I spent a year studying Irish club bands. Then performed an hour long recital on a Bhodran drum." Graham disclosed. (A what? Thank you, Wikipedia.)

I know for a fact the speakers in the Mastodon van have crackled hours of George Jones. There's a lick on Island from Leviathan that would cut Jerry Reeds head off. Thanks for the article.

I must have misinterpreted " let our journey to the deep South introduce you to a sound likely unfamiliar to your tropical ears." I have seen them several times and they are fantastic!

Hey Anon, While I agree I could've defined further, "deep American South," I did not say "Deep South." Hopefully you get, or have had the opportunity to see these guys live. Thanks for reading. MM

When did Kentucky become the "deep South"?
