The Boat Drunks, who mostly play in central Illinois and Indiana, included this song on their second album, Wahine Man.

"Lone Star State of Mind" is possibly the most recognizable tune from the Grammy Award winning Texas icon, Nanci Griffith.

Frank Foster is a Louisiana boy who gave us this track on his latest album, Rowdy Reputation.

A New Jersey born, Florida based singer-songwriter, John Frinzi wrote this song for his Shoreline album.

Veterans of the Trop Rock scene, Jimmy Parish & the Ocean Waves Band have this track on their Let's Go Fishin' album.

Gene Mitchell and the Big Coconut Band released their album Island Party in 2003, which included this song.

Another Buffett masterpiece, "Bama Breeze" was his gift to the Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.

Larry Joe Taylor is from Stephenville, TX, and has played at the Texas Theater and left the audience wanting more.  You can expect to hear more from this artist soon!

Peter Mayer has been a regular member of the world famous Coral Reefer Band.  He brought us this tune in his 1999 album, Million Year Mind.

A track from their first CD, Fools, Drunks, and Children, "Songs You Know By Heart" is a PHINS fan's favorite.  The band is rumored to be going their separate ways in 2012, so you better see them if you get the chance!
