Another player, another friend! 

Hey all ya'll--we're really excited to announce that our newest player is an old friend of many of the Panthers.  We want to welcome Dave Karn to our clan of honky tonkin' romping fun!  Dave not only went to high school with Ted and Laura, but he also played many years shredding the guitar for local dance party sensation Hit Machine.  After around 15 years of rocking it up, his retirement from Hit Machine is Panther Creek's gain!  Not only does Dave have mad guitar skills that compliment Little Paully, but he can sing a sweet tune too (you gotta hear his George Jones!)  Welcome Dave!

New, new, new! 

We finally got in touch with a photographer that wasn't related to the band in a hillbilly way!  A special shout out to Jim Dorothy of JD Photography for making us look not too shabby while we were honky tonkin' our buns off!  You can check out his work at  You can also see some of his work in our photos section of this fancy web site.

Also more new recordings will be coming out soon!  Yee ha!

One of us got some new tighty whities!  Can you guess who?

More Tunes to Come 

Panther Creek has been spending some time in the studio with a final session scheduled for March 8, 2014.  Can't wait to posts the new tracks for ya'll to hear!  Yee ha!

More from Panther Creek 

OK, so from our poll we can see you would like to hear some more new tunes as well as a little bit of oldies.  We think we've got a song for you that covers both--we've been working up a Panther Creek version of Wagon Wheel which is a classic originally performed by the Old Crow Medicine Show but was recently a big hit with Darius Rucker's cover.  See, we're thinking of you and what pleases our fans!

We're also adding some Gary Allan, Josh Turner, Bonnie Raitt, and Tammy Wynette for our next show.  Come on out and hear us to find out which ones!

Trivia Poll Answers 

Piano Man Dan Trivia

Dan has done a lot of interesting things in his musical career, but wearing lederhosen while playing an Oktoberfest is not one of them.  Now wearing lederhosen while watching TV...that's another story!

Who's Your Daddy?

No, contrary to popular response, Maria's mom didn't date Luke Bryan nor Grandpa Jones.  Maria's mother dated Buck Owens when she was 18 and living in Tacoma, WA.  He was older and working as a DJ.  Maria doesn't know exactly what happened, but every time Maria turned on Hee Haw, her mom would walk into the room and say "That A**hole!" then turn around and walk out.
