Synopsis

Amazon.com
Playing the too-country for commercial radio side of the field, Wayne Hancock makes some of the loneliest Hank Williams-styled C&W since, well, since ol' Hank himself. Moving easily from hillbilly bop ("Double A Daddy") to dancehall honky tonk ("Juke Joint Jumpin'"), Hancock has the old-school twang down cold. He succeeds most, though, when he takes that old sound and fits it into his own modern life, as he does on the exquisitely drawn title track, where he details why pulling off to a motel whenever the highway weather gets bad makes his heart swell with fond memories. --David Cantwell

CD Reviews

Hank III's version of the title song ain't bad neither!

"If you were lookin' for country music that's
too lonely for VH1,
too despondent for CMT,
and too ornery for GAC,
you just found it."
Wayne's world

"This is classic rockabilly. It's got all the elements, catchy tunes with a good beat, twangy voice, and good stories. If you like western swing music with an edge, you should try this ."
