What do you do when your entire life as a musician is suddenly put on hold? For The Band of Heathens, the answer to the big existential question of 2020 was simple: put on a show. For fifty-two weeks, every Tuesday night, the five-piece group came together via Zoom from their respective homes – in California, Texas, Tennessee and North Carolina - to host the Good Time Supper Club, a ninety-minute variety program. The segment of the show, called Remote Transmissions, became a much-anticipated fan favorite each week.

Critically-acclaimed rock ’n' roll group The Band of Heathens have teamed with legendary Americana artist Ray Wylie Hubbard for a special collab of The Temptations’ classic hit "Papa Was a Rolling Stone". The tune drops today and is available for download / streaming HERE.
