Flint Michigan Couple Issues a Pre-Show Video Their Upcoming Italy Tour

Rusty and Laurie Wright and band are simply too hot to constrain to the state of Michigan. Shortly they will depart to do their first tour of Italy. This video was shot pre-trip.

As this is not likely, I would highly recommend that you catch their show when ever they play a festival or venue near you.
