And while some wondered whether the rockabilly band was nothing more than a vanity project for the Oscar winner, the group’s longevity, to say nothing of its increasing critical acclaim, has long since silenced critics. Reminiscent of a ’60s-era mod band gone country, the Boxmasters’ upbeat rhythms and infectious arrangements are a fusion of the Beatles, the Stones and the Animals with Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Roy Acuff and Hank Williams.
