This just in, Moot’s song “Wanna Go Back” will be featured in the hit F/X show Justified this Tuesday, March 31. The song was part of 2014’s critically lauded CD Goin In Hot, released by Crow Town Records.
Based on Elmore Leonard’s novella “Fire in the Hole,” Justified was developed by Graham Yost and stars Timothy Olyphant as ‘Deputy US Marshal Raylan Givens’, a lawman who finds himself drawn back to his home state of Kentucky. This January, in Justified’s final season, the long brimming conflict between Raylan and Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) will finally come to a head.
Ultra popular blog Saving Country Music has named Moot’s latest CD Goin’ In Hot as one of 2014’s top albums. The reviewer, Trigger, says it’s “both timeless and relevant, and satiates all sectors of your salivating country music palette”.

Moot is tearing across the country on his way to Los Angeles for some much needed R&R after a long year of touring. Here’s some cool press from Kudos AZ for his upcoming encore appearance at the Sound Bites Grill in Sedona, AZ on Nov 21, 2014:
Sound Bites Grill proudly presents the return of Moot Davis on Friday, Nov. 21, as a solo act. Be prepared. Moot is best known for some great rockin’ up tempo country music — red-hot, in your face, ants in your pants, longneck in your hand, sweetheart in your arms barroom boogie time when he performs with his band. This evening will be a unique opportunity for you to see him with no cover in an up close and intimate solo performance. This is a rising trend among artist getting back to smaller venue performances.

Henry Carrigan from CountryStandardTime.com has a lot of good things to say about Goin’ In Hot…
…if Keith Richards, Raul Malo and Dwight Yoakam had a love child, it would be Moot Davis. Davis delivers an album that might better have titled “Goin’ in Scorching.” Corvino’s and Vaughan’s guitars, combined with Davis’s searing lyrics and his blistering voice, burn down every roadhouse in sight.

Moot and the boys are proud to be included in the Pflugerville Pfirecracker Pfestival July 4th. We hit the stage “STARS” stage at 6pm, come on out and have some fun!
From blues to country, pop to patriotic, a ton of great bands will keep the Independence Day celebration hopping from midday to after the fireworks show! See the Pfirecracker Pfestival performances on the north or south sides of Lake Pflugerville, starting at 3 p.m.
Moot Davis and The Good Americans were up in Boston last Saturday to film a performance for The Alternate Root‘s TV show, The Extended Play Session. The boys were on fire and tore it up! Among the audience was blogger Suze Uttal, who captured the real feel of what we have going on in both words and a lot of great photos.
I was not at all familiar with Moot before this show but I do enjoy country twang so I went to this Session. Not only was I not disappointed, I loved this show! I suggest that people who think they don’t like country music should listen to Moot; he might change your minds.
Man, Frank De Blase from the Rochester City Paper really gets it, one of the better short descriptions of what Moot and the boys got going on:
This is some red-hot, in your face, ants in your pants, longneck in your hand, sweetheart in your arms barroom boogie. New Jersey-born Moot Davis’ twang and croon calls to mind the country revolution that resuscitated and rescued country music from the Nashvegas vampires. Though the music displays plenty of rural, rocking giddy-up and go, at the heart of it all is an honest countrypolitan crooner who embraces the Keef Riffhard 5-string, open G approach to the guitar. That’s right, there’s some rock in there, baby.
