Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band has a big reason to be happy today.

The band’s latest album Poor Until Paday has been nominated for Best Blues Rock Album of 2019 by the Blues Foundation.  The 2019 Blues Music Awards are scheduled for May 9 at the Cook Convention Center in Memphis, TN.

The band’s ninth full-length studio recording, Poor Until Payday has garnered critical acclaim from various mainstream outlets, such as Rolling Stone CountryGuitar World magazine and American Songwriter since its release via the band’s own Family Owned Records and Thirty Tigers early last October.

Front man and band namesake Reverend Peyton was humble as he talked about the band’s nomination.

“We are so honored to be nominated for a Blues Foundation, Blues Music Award,” he said.  “I’ve dreamed of being nominated for a BMA practically my whole life.  Thanks for noticing this record y’all.  Poor Until Payday is up for Best Blues Rock Album.  Just floored by this.”

Poor Until Payday has generated three hit singles — ‘You Can’t Steal My Sunshine‘ and ”Poor Until Payday‘ and ‘It Is Or It Ain’t‘ — since its release.  Audiences will get to hear both songs and many more during the band’s upcoming tour dates starting Feb. 16 in St. Augustine, FL. The band’s tour schedule — noted below — runs through Sept. 1 in Cookeville, TN.
