     Nominated as a solo perfomer despite his association with his band, The Mobile Homewreckers, David Todoran was equally gracious in winning and uncomfortable in being categorized as a country music performer.
     Look, Paula Jo Taylor & Legacy [were] nominated, and they’re far more ‘real’ country than I am. She should have won the award,” Todoran said.
     Well, the talented singer, songwriter and guitarist has gotten used to all this by now. Although more comfortable wearing the label of Americana, Todoran understands that the addition of steel pedal guitar player Bob Craven to the Homewreckers gave the band its underlying country sound. “Bob’s a real country music guy. He’s played with a lot of real country musicians,” Todoran said.
     If Todoran has far more in common with Steve Earle and John Prine than with Clint Black or even Keith Urban (for whom he’s opened at the Scottish Rite Theater), Todoran has impeccable local music credentials. He and Kenny Taylor were the backbone of the Red Belly Boys before many of the people at the Whammy Awards show could get into places with liquor licenses.
