George McConnell Releases Virtual 45’s

Freed of contractual obligations, George McConnell has been able to turn the focus back to his original songs, leading to his most recent musical project showcasing two decades of stage experience and songwriting talent. From the lilting country of "Veronica Blue" and "Feel No Pain" to the honky tonk rollick of "Goodbye, So Long", through the Stax funk workout of "Mr. Cropper" to the sagacious journey of "Jaguar of the Mountain", along with the autobiographical humor of "Hey Man" and the ‘in your face’ punk of "Here We Come Now!”, these songs serve as a musical reflection of his lengthy travels, travails and adventures that all began on a beer truck in the Mississippi Delta.
As an invitation to come ride shotgun on the truck with him, George released this latest batch of tunes exclusively via digital download on his fancy new web site But…. there is a twist. Since George is a bit ‘different’ [read: weird] and thinks he’s SO in tune with this modern digital age [he calls it the ether-net], he insisted on releasing the songs as pairs- "you know, like a real 45 rpm vinyl record.” When asked why, he simply replied, "Because I love jukeboxes." Therefore, without realizing it, George had single-handedly invented the first true "Virtual 45" ™ in the world! Now you too can make history by being the first one on your block to own one of these rare ‘pressings’! Vinyl fans, don’t worry…real 45’s are on the way. And for those who embrace the ease of compact discs and the full album format, there is also a CD, Singles Only releasing May 12th.
McConnell and his band The Nonchalants play their final hometown show at The Lyric on March 26, then barnstorm across the Southeast leading up to the official release of Singles Only. Midwest dates will follow.
