Two Mississippi teams playing against each other. I met this band when they opened up for Robert Earl Keen. I hope you enjoy.
One big thing to watch: MSU is one win away from being in the championship game of the regional. This happened to them in the 2011 Atlanta Regional and they beat No. 4 seed Austin Peay.
