“Whiskey Talkin' I would say more of the rock with some blues guitar than a country song, unlike what I think of as a classic rock song it's not as fast and upbeat. With the blues style guitars it gives another feel about the song, and the actual riffs are amazing. There's also a familiarity to them, something that after a long time and listening to a lot of sounds I found the familiarity in Bon Jovi. It's not the whole song I found the similarity just the catchy guitar riffs. There's a great vocal range though out the song, more than I was expecting to be honest. In the rare times I've listened to this style of music I'd found the vocals can often be lacking, but Mark's voice is really good, making the lyrics clear and stand out against the music its self. Lyrics is this a story of a man in love with the alcohol or not? I find it hard to tell. Over all I enjoyed the song, it wasn't something I got bored of as I had it on repeat but I wouldn't have called it country by any means.”

“I really wasn’t sure what to expect before listening to these songs, I had my thoughts on what I was in for, but I’m pleased to say that my expectations were exceeded after having listened to all six tracks. I was expecting a dirty hard rocking roadhouse band, but I got some terrific well written songs that really did blend many more modern rock styles with country influence like I’ve never heard before, going from “heartland rock” to heavy grungy roadhouse blues and not caring what listeners think. I look forward, as I recommend others should, for the full album when it comes out.”

“Mark Stone and the Dirty Country Band describe their sound as what “A Honky Tonk Bar Brawl Between the Eagles, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Alice in Chains Would Sound Like. Turning Southern Rock to 11 one gig at a time.” Mark Stone is the lead Singer Guitar Player and mad scientist behind Mark Stone and the Dirty Country Band and the creator of #Gruntry.”

“You have a cool sound(reminded me instantly of something similar to GNR), I like the catchy songs and you obviously know how to write.”

“Sahpreem A. King @SahpreemKing ( @mst0ne ) Mark Stone and the Dirty Country Band- Whiskey Talkin'-It puts me in an early STP state of mind. Love the lyrics and the song. It sounds like the track needs to be mastered. I can rock out to this song! Something I will add to my workout mix. I would love 2 see this as an up tempo song its got FIRE!!! The song has a ton of appeal but the vocals blend too much with the track so I can't enjoy the lyrics as much as I like. Great song! (When I told him I was in the studio recording "The Sequel" He finished saying) Sahpreem A. King @SahpreemKing @mst0ne I think you would be a GOD in that space. You have the vocal chops and right type of lyrics to do it with ease and style. Mark Stone @mst0ne @SahpreemKing I'm most at home in the studio or on the stage I live to do this and I appreciate your opinion means a lot to me Thank You Sahpreem A. King mentioned you Sahpreem A. King @SahpreemKing @mst0ne Your music and talent mean”
