Lush Country

Crooner's Lounge, 6161 Highway 65 NE, Minneapolis, MN

A hankering for the sound of a pedal steel guitar, that high lonesome Floyd Cramer piano and that Patsy Cline yodel?

The seven members of Lush Country are an all-star group of longtime Twin Cities headliners and A Prairie Home Companion veterans: Dan Chouinard, Prudence Johnson, Richard Kriehn, Gary Raynor, Gary Rue, Pete Johnson and Joe Savage.
