While Muscle Shoals had The Swampers, Mike Huckabee's Fox News program has Skinny Molly, whose guitarist/vocalist is none other than Jay Johnson, who has attended G-FEST and G-CON since 1995. This Saturday sees the national debut of Skinny Molly on the former Arkansas governor's talk show.
Sidelong Glances of a Pigeon Kicker does not endorse the views of Mike Huckabee or Fox News, but it does endorse Jay Johnson, who quite simply kicks ass.

More information comes from the band's press release, which is below. Congratulations, Jay!
Skinny Molly will be appearing on former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee’s show “Huckabee” on Fox News this Saturday, January 16, 2010 (8:00 p.m. EST and 7:00
p.m. CST). The band will be performing their new single “Mr. President.” The
song is the band’s musical commentary on the current political climate. It’s
available for download on Skinny Molly’s website www.skinnymollyrocks.com and
the song’s debut performance will actually be on the Presidential candidate’s
weekly nationally televised show. “Huckabee” is the number one cable news show
in the United States with a viewership averaging 1.7 million people.
Guitarist/Vocalist Jay Johnson (Blackfoot, Rossington Band) will be joining
Skinny Molly on “Huckabee” as well as the upcoming European Winter Tour which
begins on January 28, 2010 in Wales. The tour will take Skinny Molly through the
United Kingdom, Spain, Holland and Belgium and is sure to be one the band’s most
exciting tours yet. New original songs are planned, as are many more surprises.
