"You Could Go"

When the Atkinsons guitarist Dickie Wood wrote his name on the chalkboard for the open-mic at Matt's Village Pub, little did he know that seven years later he'd still be performing with host and mandolin player Jeff Williams. The Atkinsons' new CD, "Milemarker," represents the last three of those years, which saw the roots-rock outfit playing shows just about every other week. Although this grueling schedule hasn't taken the band over dusty back roads or through sweaty juke joints, it sure sounds like it. And while there's still plenty of twang on the album, "You Could Go" represents its penchant for classic Southern rock 'n' roll.
