There's a buzz in the air these days, when you're around Steve Armstrong and the 25 Cent Beer Band.

Oh sure . . . there's line dancers and beer.

There's songs to be sung and drinks to be enjoyed.

Steve sings, "Drink a little drink . . . Smoke a little smoke . . ." and everybody on the dance floor screams with delight.

But if you LOOK REAL, REAL, CLOSE . . . you'll see something else.

Steve sings, "I Miss My Truck." The crowd knows it's an original song. The girls squeal with delight . . . The boys raise their drinks in salute.

Cameras are popping pictures -- more than ever before. Random pretty girls -- with wide-eyed smiles -- are shooting personal video using their cell phones. Smiles are everywhere -- bar patrons and band members alike.

In just three weeks . . . Steve Armstrong and the 25 Cent Beer Band will release their new 10-track Country CD, produced in Nashville.
