"We've always wanted to record a live album that captures the rawness of the band and this is it! We couldn't be more thrilled then to have captured this at the infamous Whisky, where it all began for us. After 30 years, we're still proud to do what we do and hopefully it shows. This is an intimate performance, the way it should be."
The DVD of Live At The Whisky also contains the music video for “No More Hell To Pay” and “Sympathy” from their latest album No More Hell To Pay. It also features an interview segment the band recorded for Nashville All Access. A trailer for the DVD can be seen at http://youtu.be/uCB8lvXw5pk.
