Sounds Of Hopscotch 2013 #12: Kopecky Family Band

Hard as it may be to believe, it's once again time for Hopscotch. One of my favorite festival happenings, Hopscotch is a mere hop, skip, and a jump or two from the DC metro in lovely Raleigh, North Carolina. For the past few years they've been reeling in some seriously impressive lineups, and this year looks to be no different. Thanks to scheduling conflicts, I won't be heading down for this year's sonic extravaganza, but (not at all surprisingly) I've got recommendations on who to check out if you're heading to the fest.

It's not that I automatically like every band that comes out of Nashville. It's just that everything I'm hearing from Music City lately sounds too good to resist. The sentimental side of me has really connected with the Kopecky Family Band and their sprawling expanses of pretty, anthemic little ditties.  They also demonstrate a little bit of sass, and in my book that's a very, very good thing indeed.
