There’s a cool band out of Stephenville named Dolly Shine. They’ve been around for a few years, but just recently made their first visit to the KEAN Afternoon Show. Here’s hoping it’s the first of many!

Lead singer and chief songwriter Zack McGinn and fiddle player Wes Hall joined me to promote their new single, ‘Should’ve Known’. The first part of our conversation had McGinn taking time to explain where the name Dolly Shine came from. He said he was against the band name, until a friend told him the meaning of ‘dolly shine’. Since then, bar patrons have regularly asked them, “Hey, where’s Dolly at?” during sound check. Zack tells us response is generally, “Well, she’s on the bus. She might be out a little later.“. Well played.

In part three of my interview with Dolly Shine, we talked about the fact that the band has never played in Abilene. McGinn’s pitch to local live music establishments was simple and too the point. He says, “That’s hopefully coming up here in the near future…shout out to all Abilene bars. Love you. Please, let us in!”. Here’s the final part of my conversation with Dolly Shine:
