from our promo for this concert
The mother-daughter duo of Nancy and Tammy Dail front the tightest country music band in eastern North Carolina. Led by founder and pedal steel guitarist Bowie Martin, Country Roads plays classic country as well as a few pop and rock classics done up country style.
“They’ve always been one of our most popular acts,” said Alex Albright, Fountain General Store proprietor. “The band is as tight as they come, and with Nancy and Tammy they put on a Branson or Myrtle Beach kind of show.”
Joining Martin in the band are Ken Dawson on drums; Billy Bass on bass; John Ackerman on keyboards; and Ronnie King on lead guitar. “Ronnie’s one of the best guitarists we get in Fountain,” added Albright.
The Rocky Mount Telegram will have a reporter and photographer at this show, as they prepare a feature on the band.
Nancy and Tammy Dail and Country Roads have released two CDs, Country Music Bill Ellis Style and The Train Stops Here. Bowie Martin has also released a solo CD on which he covers his favorite songs for pedal steel guitar.
