Wipe away those tears all, it's the weekend and time for some rollicking good times.
And I can't think of a better soundtrack than Brent Amaker and the Rodeo who are plying their pitch-black honky tonk wares in various pitch-black honky tonks as we speak.
There's an album out next month - with the fantastic title of Howdy Do! - we'll certainly be keeping an eye out for it.
Listen: Brent Amaker and the Rodeo - When Love Gets to a Man
Listen: Brent Amaker and the Rodeo - Girls are Good for Lots of Things
Buy the first album, and stream some more songs on from the new one on their MySpace page.
