Now, why the "Silver City Boys"? And just who are these guys?
St. Paul, MN is known as The Silver City and the band is based in the Twin Cities. Also, the "boys from Silver City" are mentioned in Chris' favorite Robert Earl Keen, Jr. song, "Feelin' Good Again".
The Silver City Boys are a mysterious group of outlaws. They are wanted in 50 states and in Mexico. Some say their long hair gives them their strength. Others say it's beer. They play hard and then ride away.
