Although Danny Ray and Joe go way back as friends, it wasnt until more recently they started writing, recording and performing as The INLAWS.
It all started when Joe joined Danny Rays band as the lead guitarist in the winter of 2002. Joe played in the Daniel Ray Edwards Band for about a year as a side project while at the same time playing in many groups including being the frontman of his own country group called LONGSHOT. This made for a busy schedule which ultimately led to his departure of the D.R.E. band.
In October of 2005, Joe married Danny Ray's sister, hence the name, The INLAWS... Once Brother-in-laws, Danny Ray and Joe began toying with the idea of forming a Country Duo act!! The INLAWS is the reality of that original idea! The INLAWS are currently in the studio writing and recording new material for a brand new album planned to be released very soon.
Danny Ray and Joe are both excited over the new duo project and are looking to bring a new edge to today's country music industry.
