    BJ Barham | The Converse Cowboy

    BJ Barham | The Converse Cowboy

    Best known as the frontman of North Carolina alt-country outfit American Aquarium, singer/songwriter B.J. Barham has spent much of his career delivering rugged, earthy roots rock in the vein of Whiskeytown and Drive-By Truckers. A native of Reidsville, North Carolina, Barham formed the group in 2005 and, over the course of a decade, built American Aquarium's reputation from regional up-and-comers to acclaimed, internationally recognized act thanks to records like 2012's Jason Isbell-produced Burn. Flicker. Die. and 2015's Wolves. Inspired by the November 2015 terrorist attacks at a Parisian nightclub, Barham -- who was, at the time, on tour in nearby Belgium -- quickly wrote a new batch of acoustic-led songs that would eventually become Rockingham, his solo debut. In early 2016, with co-producer Bradley Cook, he and a handpicked crew of musicians recorded the new material in a couple of marathon sessions. The album was released later that year, earning positive reviews. Barham toured as a solo act as well, hitting all 48 states in the continental United States during the spring and summer of 2017. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi

    Kimes Ranch | The Converse Cowboy

    Kimes Ranch | The Converse Cowboy

    Get to know the masterminds behind the Kimes Ranch brand, (Matt and Amanda Kimes).  Whether you've seen the familiar Kimes brand on the notorious show, 'Yellowstone' or you're a fan of their incredible denim and western apparel, you're going to want to hear their story of how they grew the Kimes brand to what it is today.  
    With a dream to create THE JEAN that was missing from the western world, Matt and Amanda sourced every element of their production-finding the best team of cutters, sewers, and washers until their product was undeniably the best fit and quality. They created a jean versatile enough to crossover from western to everyday wear, with a medium waist line for women that allowed high enough coverage while riding but low enough rise to mimic a fashionable street jean.  #westernuncomplicated
