Throwback country can almost be a dirty word. Sometimes artists that get stuck with the throwback country label can be pretty hokey and cartoonish. Luckily we have Wayne "the Train" Hancock. He's been at it for over 20 years even though he sounds like he's been at it for at least twice that. His latest single, "Slingin' Rhythm," is an ode to being a traveling, working class struggling musician. It's a bouncy, bare bones track that celebrates the hardships of the road.
Wayne "the Train" Hancock's newest album, also called Slingin' Rhythm, will be out on October 28 via Bloodshot Records. You can order a copy through their website, and listen to "Slingin' Rhythm" below. For more information on Wayne Hancock, be sure to check out his website.
