Aces & Eights is committed to bringing back the roots of country music. Listeners find themselves on a journey back to a simpler time when country music was authentic; no fluff added. This very tradition reveals itself in the masterful guitar licks, old time banjo, and sweet mandolin melodies in correlation with the strong leads and beautiful harmonies of Aces & Eights.
“America is bombasted with the phony these days, but being a gambler for every CD I listen to, hoping for the real deal, the best one so far is “Aces and Eights” who are not only totally ‘retro’ they have all the elements that make that word reliable and honest.
Bob Everhart, President of NTCMA for 42 years. (National Traditional Country Music Association)
I was entranced. I was only going to listen to a couple songs, but listened to them all. There is a purist sound and vibe to this album. The arranging, the vocals, the harmony are like Oh Brother Where Art Thou meets Kasey Musgraves…really!
Francie Ganje, Producer of the American Heritage of The West Performance Series
Aces and Eights from South Dakota are without a doubt one of the most interesting ‘true’ country artists I’ve had the real pleasure of listening to in a long long time. I remember well the first album they sent me to see what I thought of what they were doing, and I was astounded that there are voices and instrument players (a duet they are) that still produce such a warm relevant musical project with such interesting and beautiful co-produced melodies, original songs, with such an original approach to some classic country songs.

I like the CD! For me, I could sit back on the porch drinking a few beers with friends and jamming to it with a few musical friends.
Jay Brooks, KISS Country 98.7 Morning Rush
Overall I was highly impressed with Aces & Eights. They really accomplished their goal for this album, which was to create a classic country album with fun, loving and creative lyrics and stories. The Heart Of Country Music album kept me engaged and wanting more from beginning to end.
Anthony Barksdale, Indie Nation
I just want to tell you honestly, typically I run from country music. But sitting there last night listening to you I fell madly in love with your duet and your music. In fact, I took three videos to post immediately on the resort website to show everyone they were quite possibly missing the best show of the year.
