Today’s edition of Red Bank oRBit has the details on an event that ought to be of interest to you few (but fervent) fans of country music here on the Jersey Shore — and no, we don’t mean the kind of processed cheez whiz they book into Six Flags and the PNC.

It’s the third annual Jersey Country Revival, an event that offers up thirteen cutting-edge country acts over thirteen hours; all of it organized, assembled and agonized over by our favorite Suburban Hillbilly, Michael Patrick.

Michael’s the man who brought roots-music geniuses Justin Townes Earle and Pokey LaFarge to the Shore for the first time, and in this benefit for the Cooley’s Anemia Foundation he’s put together a card that features Red Bank fave Rob Dye, newgrass exciters Victory Gin, blues griller BBQ Bob — and John Eddie (above), the veteran Shore rocker who’s “gone Nashville” in a big way.

It’s all there, in all its twangy texture, in today’s Red Bank oRBit — and tune in tomorrow for our exclusive interview with another guy who’s taken roots Americana to a whole new blockbusting level — the Reverend Horton Heat!
