The Patriotic sounds from the Indiana based Night Owl Country Band hits a metaphorical home run with 'Country To The Bone'. In a time where we are living in a world where there is so much conflict, this song brings us all together as Red, White, and Blue Americans. 'Country to the Bone' was written by Mike Morgan, Jeff Elliott, and Mike Owens, who are best known for writing songs for Alabama and the late Conway Twitty. The 'Award Winning' Night Owl Country Band has played in many venues including fulfilling the dream of playing on the Grand Ole Opry stage.
