While that still may be the case, it looks like the band will have to do so sans the Farro brothers – Josh and Zac. For those unfamiliar with the band, Josh plays lead guitar and provides backing vocals, while Zac plays drums.

But when his dream girl rolls back into town, Grace then decides he’s going to fake the good life to win her over. Check out the Take Me Home Tonight trailer below if that doesn’t quite make sense.
Farmer’s Daughter boasts a modern folk feel and an accessible country vibe, and is a good indicator that Crystal Bowersox’s time in the spotlight is not yet over.

Even if you’re not a fan of country, give Farmer’s Daughter a shot.

Kelly branching out with success on several tracks and is worth a listen.
