With special guests that have their own story to tell, the Armadillos will explore these songs and artists, and you are sure to find a connection to many of these treasured songs. Many of these songs will continue to live on for years past the singer that wrote them in our hearts and minds. Their songs find a way to connect to us all, with not just a hook or an ear worm, but a message, either subtle or distinct that finds it’s way into our DNA.
