It must be tough when all you want to be is a shit kicking honky tonk band from Texas, but it's the 1980s and you have to make a living sneaking a couple of Ray Price and George Straight tunes into a set filled with covers of the chart toppers of the day like ROMANTICS, Lionel Riche and HALL & OATES. Eddy Raven's "I Got Mexico" was a favorite when I was a pre-teen though, and it holds up.
