Spur Cross is a band that plays classic country western and just a little classic rock. Fred Cawthon, Marty Cawthon, and Chester Wright Jr. have been friends since they were teens. The band's original lead player Ben Baressi dropped out of the band after his father died. Tragically, Ben lost his life a few years later when he was struck by a drunk driver while riding his bicycle. You can hear Ben on My Home's In Alabama and You Never Even Call Me. James Gilbert, a friend we met through Marty, joined the Band in 1996 and took over the lead guitar and backing vocals.
