Rex Hobart and the Misery Boys have been performing traditional country music in their hometown of Kansas City and in barrooms across the country for more than 15 years.  This week’s edition of Local Listen features “Jonesin’ For Merle Haggard,” a playful song that pays tribute to several legends of country music.

Hobart and his band will celebrate the release of the new album “Long Shot of Hard Stuff” at the Westport Saloon on Saturday, April 4. Hear more from Rex Hobart on KCUR's Central Standard at 10 a.m. on April 2.
