CANCELED - Live Music: Pistol Hill Band

Galena Country "Pistol Hill is a country singer/songwriter and is touring the Southeast full time. Noticeable from the beginning are influences from some of his favorite artists, Merle Haggard and George Jones. A specific lyrical style is present in the song-writing as the music itself straddles a line between new and old, but his voice carries the song – as it should. A story tellers dream, the words point toward an appreciation for the literal whiskey in addition to a parallel of an actual relationship gone awry.". Telephone number: 815.776.9917.
