Country fans who love the old sounds of “High & Lonesome” singers like Hank Williams, and Honky-tonk rapid fire narratives like those of George Jones will feel right at home on the highway with Wayne Hancock. Hancock has been reviving the classic country sounds of the 30s, 40s and 50s as he endlessly tours North America with his four piece band, playing music halls, juke joints and jamborees every week of the year.
Wayne “The Train” Hancock got his nickname from friends because he doesn’t like to stand still. He is constantly planning his next show and tour and loves the open road. The video for you today is one of his ballads to a simpler time on the move, being simultaneously thrilled and scared how the weather on the road can suddenly turn, but how he always found the comforts of home at the family truck stops and motels under the handmade neon signs.
We hope you enjoy this pleasant mix of country, rockabilly and jazz. Pay special attention to Wayne’s Ace In the Hole, pedal steel master Lloyd Maines. Sounds like this really take you back!
