2011 Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase Round Four: Mandy McBryde and the Unholy Ghost

For years Mandy McBryde has been a steady source of acerbic, witty updates on traditional country music, but now the local songwriter is taking a shot at electrified country rock with help from her new backing band, the Unholy Ghost. But her sly humor still takes center stage with songs like "Loretta," which sees the Coal Miner's Daughter as a guiding spirit during a catfight at Midtown Billiards.

Think: A smart-assed Loretta Lynn for the Facebook era.
