Ward Hayden & The Outliers are kicking off a tour as buzz grows for their first album under the new name. Formerly known as Girls Guns & Glory, the band is readying release of ‘Can’t Judge a Book,’ featuring renditions of songs made famous by Elvis Costello, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Fountains of Wayne, and Chuck Berry, plus one earworm of an original tune, “Naturally Crazy.”


Cowboys and Indians said, “Though they come from the North, Ward Hayden & the Outliers have a traditional sound and a love of the classics that make them true cowboys at heart.” Glide Mag simply called the album “electrifying” and Twangville “great.“ The Bluegrass Situation also spotlighted the Boston-based band: https://thebluegrasssituation.com/read/listen-ward-hayden-the-outliers-hackensack/
