Slant 6 Cowboys

Slant 6 Cowboys


Like John Wayne busting through a Saloon door in the old Western movies the Slant 6 Cowboys are bursting onto the Alternative Country Music scene. Led by the “whiskey soaked” voice of Don Whitcher and the powerful guitar of Peter Coonradt, The Slant Six Cowboys are kick ass alt. country.


Hello This is Don Whitcher From The Slant 6 Cowboys. We are all serious professional Musicians In This Band, and so far We have spent eleven weeks at number 8 on the Roots Music report and several weeks at number 15 on the Americana Music Association charts. We are getting nation wide airplay and also are backed by a great label. R.W. Shamey, of Twangcast, says, "The Slant 6 Cowboys are the definition of Alt. Country."
I was mainly influenced by my Dad who played accoustic guitar and sang. I was brought up on a farm and country music seemed to seep from everywhere. I remember my Dad playing allong and singing to Johnny Cash and Hank Williams Albums and I just loved it. I have allso been influenced by Gram Parsons, Townes Vandzant,
Steve Earle,Merle Haggard and Many Bluegrass and western swing greats. I spent a lot of time travelling around this country playing music and meeting some great muscicians. I came back to N.H. to visit with my best friend Peter Coonradt
and together we formed this band. If you are interested in us scroll down and you will find :
