The story of the Handsome Devils

Rev. Jon Goold was struck down by blinding light one night after an evening of drunkenness and debauchery. He then heard a benevolent voice tell him that he was to start the greatest old-timey country western band that no one has ever heard of, and that he should recruit his foolish wife and brothers to join him in this fruitless endeavor. Thus the Handsome Devils were born.
