These are hard times, and hard times are often hardest on the working man. And Whitey Morgan and the 78's, a honky tonk band from Flint, Mich., are from a city that's seen its share of tough luck.

In an era when country music has become defined by polished hits and slick, country-rock crossover acts, Whitey Morgan and the 78's are a return to what country music once was: music for the hard-working man. Morgan sings raucous songs about bar fights and Saturday nights, because honky tonk music is about forgetting the hard times, at least for a little while. With a straight-ahead country sound defined by guitar, fiddle and pedal steel, the group is out to "show you how fun drinking is." They may not have the cure for these hard times, but they'll sure as hell get you through that Saturday night.

Currently touring in support of their self-titled 2010 release on Bloodshot Records, Whitey Morgan and the 78's brought their brand of "Certified Country" to the Snorty Horse Saloon (in Columbia, Mo.) on March 25 and Off Broadway on March 26.

Tower of Song: A Tribute to Leonard Cohen and 80th Birthday Party Leonard Cohen started out as a poet, and poetry -- ecstatic, spiritual, erotic and political -- suffuses all of his work. When he launched a career as a songwriter and singer in the '60s, only Bob Dylan could match his visionary...
