Episode 167 with The War And Treaty

Debut album is available March 10th

Trailblazing husband-and-wife duo The War And Treaty are releasing their major label debut album, Lover’s Game, on March 10th via UMG Nashville. The husband and wife duo of Michael Trotter Jr. and Tanya Trotter dug deep into the lessons their love has laid bare, with more than 100 songs written over the last two years before completing the 10 song project.

The pair are reshaping the country music landscape with their Delta blues, gospel and R&B sounds. They’re featured on the upcoming Rolling Stones 60th anniversary country tribute album, Stoned Cold Country, where they join Brothers Osborne for a rousing rendition of “It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll (But I Like It).” The duo performed the song when they made their CMA Awards debut last year.

The War And Treaty will join Chris Stapleton on the All-American Road Show Tour. But first, they will bring their show “from a concert to something of a religious experienceto more than 35-cities this spring on their own Lover’s Game Tour, kicking off March 19th in Oklahoma City.

Michael and Tanya join us to discuss inspiration behind the album, their newfound success, and some wisdom longtime Grand Ole Opry member Jeannie Seely shared with them during a recent performance.
