The Twangtown Paramours is an award-winning husband and wife Americana duo from Nashville. They are three-time Kerrville finalists and winners of Texas’s Wildflower Contest. In February, they released their third album, a full band retro Blues and Americana project called Double Down on a Bad Thing. The record was on the Americana and RMR Blues charts in the U.S. and was #11 on the U.K. Blues charts, and it’s gotten great reviews. Rock Doctor Magazine said this about the album: "While those first two acoustic records made it to #11 and #2 on the folk charts and received good reviews, my gut says THIS is the album that can get The Twangtown Paramours noticed by the world at large. The songs are thoughtful, well written and the production is faultless.
