    FLOATER: A TRIBUTE TO THE TRIBUTES TO GARY FLOATER
    RELEASING IN MAY 2018 ON AUSTIN-BASED EIGHT 30 RECORDS

    Americana songwriting royalty including James McMurtry, The Band of Heathens,
    Danny Barnes, Walt Wilkins, Guy Forsyth and more offer takes on country classics

    AUSTIN, TX – News: Eight 30 Records will release the eighteen-song Floater: A Tribute to the Tributes to Gary Floater on May 4! “We're so excited about our new tribute album honoring the great Gary Floater,” says Eight 30 Records' Jenni Finlay, who produced the album with label co-owner Brian T. Atkinson. “There's truly never been anyone like him.” Indeed, Floater tunes are simply singular. Consider a few titles alone: “Whatever Man,” “Thanks Me,” “Let Me Kiss You Where It Hurts,” “A Hero Never Learns,” “Grandpa's Promise,” “Pull Over I Wanna Eat That” and “Sunburn Lake.”

    Floater: A Tribute to the Tributes to Gary Floater offers a veritable who's who of singer-songwriters with their takes on Floater's solid gold country classics. A short list – The Band of Heathens (“The Dirty South”), James McMurtry (“Grandpa's Promise”), Jason Eady (“Stand Back Boys I'm Fixing to Care”), Rod Picott (“That's What I'm Gonna Do”) – gives a glimpse. Floater himself will embark on his 40-city “Drink a Forty for the Fortieth” tour later this year celebrating the 40th anniversary of his unforgettable 1978 landmark album Denim on Denim, which features several songs on the new tribute.
