Best Country Band (Traditional) St. Louis 2008 - The Missouri Valley Boys

Stovall's Grove in Wildwood proclaims itself the "Home of Country Music since 1935," and the claim sticks in part because of the Missouri Valley Boys. In one form or another, the group has been the house band since at least the 1950s. The late, great John Hartford was a member, and founder Delmar Stovall, at the age of 84, still shows up to strum the classic country tunes. With nationally recognized ace pedal-steel man Don E. Curtis leading the breaks, drummer Donny Sloan (who played with Missouri country/bluegrass stars the Kendalls for years), Terry Miller on lead vocals, and de facto band leader Billy Bryant on fiddle, the veterans provide the soundtrack — from Hank Williams to George Jones to Merle Haggard — for Saturday-night drinking and country shuffling, the kind that puts the hokey-pokey line dancers to shame.
