Honky-tonk country band Whitey Morgan and the 78's includes lead singer Morgan, Jeremy Mackinder, Brett Robinson, Tamineh Gueramy and Travis Harrett. The group began touring with songs from their self-produced EP before signing with Small Stone Recordings to record their first album, Honky Tonks and Cheap Motels, released in 2008.

Staying close to the sound and subject matter of classic outlaw artists like Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard and David Allan Coe, Morgan is poised to lead this hard-worn brand of country to the next generation. The band's second, self-titled studio album was released on Bloodshot Records.

This Mountain Stage performance was originally published Oct. 22, 2010.
