One of East Nashville’s hardest-working honky-tonkers (and all-around nice guy) J.P. Harris recently spent a Sunday in Sound Stage Studios with Nashville rockers Chrome Pony. The result was a nifty cover of the classic Ronnie Lane composition “Just Another Honky,” originally recorded by the Faces (Lane, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Kenney Jones, and Ian McLagan) in 1973 for the quintet’s fourth and final album, Ooh La La.
From the first notes, Harris and Chrome Pony hit a deep Nashville country rock groove with J.P. and Chrome Pony frontman Tyler Davis trading off on the lead vocals. Check out the result for yourself with this video premiere, engineered by Justin Ryan Francis and videography and editing by Schuyler Howie. And check out Harris and Chrome Pony live on Friday, Oct. 5 at The Basement, celebrating the release of Harris’ third full-length studio album, Sometimes Dogs Bark At Nothing — doors at 8 p.m., show starts at 8:30.
