Money in America

By Kings of Crownsville

kings crownsvilleA great single from this Maryland group! Songwriter/lead singer Steve Johnson nails it with the lyric, “Money on the table, that’s what makes things run.”

The Kings of Crownsville line up behind their eloquent songwriting with guitar, trombone, piano, bass, percussion and some sultry harmonic vocals. Over the years they have developed a sound that can take you from the streets of New Orleans out onto old Route 66. Picking up influences from nearly every page of the American songbook, you’ll want to hear these guys on your sound system as you drive to Anywhere, U.S.A.
