To get you hyped on the newest LIFL comp, organizer/founder/super dude John King has allowed us to provide you with an exclusive preview of a track from none-other than country band The Winger Brothers who will be performing at the 2nd annual Valentine’s Brunch at New Wave Burritos, which is set to happen Sunday, February 12th (go here for more details on the event).

“Big Pony, Little Cowboy” is the name of the song from The Winger Brothers; it’s a  retro-fitted country love song that’ll surely warm you up in this blistering cold weather. The delicate vocals from Jordan Humbert coupled with the delicate, violin and slow moving acoustic and lap steel guitars come together to form a soothing, remarkable experience. This is my kind of Valentine.
