Futurebirds out of Athens, GA linked up with OurVinyl down in Nashville to record a live session of the hit single “Rodeo” off their 2015 album Hotel Parties. This is one of those songs that you can easily bump on repeat and it would be a long time before it gets old. “Rodeo” is such a feelgood, laid-back country tune from a band that typically gets a lot more psychedelic. OurVinyl did it justice, and Futurebirds delievered a performance that gets a little more in-depth, sonically-speaking, than the studio version.
If you enjoy “Rodeo”, we highly recommend you check out the rest of Hotel Parties. The album is a trip all the way through, with moments that make you want to party, to more quiet moments that really draw out the emotion. “Rodeo” is a highlight for sure, but also an outlier in its own right. There is no other song in the Futurebirds catalogue that sounds quite like “Rodeo”.
