Danielle Colby Cushman is a tattooriffic roller derbyin’ burlesque queen and one of the stars of The History Channel’s popular American Pickers reality series. As if that list wasn’t enough awesome, Danielle is also a huge fan of alternative country/roots music and is using her celebrity (and hot rod bod) to help promote the artists on Indie label Faramageddon Records.
The CD is titled Danielle Colby Presents: The Music of Farmageddon and sells for $20 (while supplies last).
From the Farmageddon Records Facebook page:
“Danielle recently did an amazing photo shoot with Amy Richmond that she would like to share with her fans and friends…. We teamed up with her to try to paint a picture with music to compliment her photo booklet.
“We pulled some unreleased and new material together from our crew to make this CD truly amazing and collectible. Danielle will be hand signing each picture booklet for this project.
“A lot of hard work went into this CD & photo shoot. This will only be pressed one time! Only 1000 copies of this will be available for sale to the public.
“You will hear a brand new song by The Perreze Farm, The Godd@mn Gallows, Slackeye Slim, J.B. Beverley, Walker & The Texas Dangers & Sean K. Preston! Other artists featured on this CD will be Black Eyed Vermillion, Rachel Brooke, Graham Lindsey, James Hunnicutt, The Calamity Cubes, Jayke Orvis, Highlonesome & Ando & The Jolly Barrels.
“These CD’s will go fast as Danielle is going to be selling them to her fans. A pre-order link will be available for this cd at www.newrootsorder.com at 9PM Eastern Time Friday March 4th!
“The official release and shipping date for this special CD is set for Tuesday April 12th!
“Make sure you get yours before it’s gone!”
Danielle – always the humble one – offered up her appreciation for being asked to participate in the project:
Amy Richmond Did an incredible job on the photos, every time she photographs me I fall in love with her work all over again! It is not an easy job as I don’t allow retouching on my photos, so it takes a very special artist to do it just right!
U want to know what my soul looks like….. Listen to this sh!t!
I had fallen in love with all of these songs and feel really blessed to be able to put my stamp on this cd. I am truly inspired by the folks who put together such badd@ss music on the daily! Amazing! Thanks for letting me be a part of this 🙂
And just in case you doubted Danielle’s connection to roots music, here she is with some of her Burlesque le’Moustache gal pals performing on stage with Drive-By Truckers during their recent two-night stand at The Vic in Chicago:
(The song is “Go-Go Boots” from the Drive By Truckers’ album of the same name.)
