Our Nashville underground friends, JEFF the Brotherhood, continue to buck the system. They’ve cut ties with their major label and will release their next album, 'Wasted on the Dream', themselves via Infinity Cat.

Georgia Bontorin will probably be the gnarliest girl you hear about this week... and she's only 17! Enjoy the ride as she discovers some new hills in California and exceeds the speed limits. Part 2 coming soon...
