A country traditionalist continues to ignore the 21st century — to marvelous effect.
Label: Bloodshot Records

At the peak of country's outlaw movement, Waylon Jennings cut "Bob Wills Is Still the King," revealing that within his contrarian exterior abided a deep devotion to the country tradition. But if Waylon thought the sheen of Music City was odious in the '70s, Wayne "the Train" Hancock ain't having none of the last half-century of the shit. Call him anachronistic, even a Luddite, but he still believes that Bob Wills reigns supreme.… read more »

Makes me want to break hundreds of beer bottles. "Theme from the TV show "Rawhide". Thank you."

Hard to believe that Wayne was born

in '65. This kid IS the 'Real Deal'. Haven't smiled this much since I found Dwight Yoakam

where has this been and why have I missed it? Listening to this just makes me happy, but the guitar playing hurts my feelings. The songwriting is top notch and the music is just great. I didn't think people still played this way. I have some practicing to do...

Wayne the Train can't be beat...

reggaeinyourjeggae

We waitied a long time for a new WH album, and this fills the void fantastically. I hate to make the obvious comparison to Hank, but Wayne is like Hank...and if you don't like Hank, well, what's wrong with you? Anyway- this is country music that comes from the heart, from one of America's most concientious purveyors of the form- when Wayne comes to town it is a whole family deal and we always have a good time- buy the record and then do whatever it takes to see the man live

Wayne 'Rocks'

I just love listening to this album! As I was explaining to a german exchange student living with us, this is America's other club music. It takes me back to my younger days when I still drank beer and danced all night. It is about fun and friends and listening to live C&W dance music. Wayne Hancock is a superb purveyor of this. The band is great, these guys all get their breaks and perform wonderfully. I am just in awe of the whole record. Get it!

As Usual...

KillerB

As usual, Hancock's music evokes an easy time of country music. He evokes the simple spirit of Hank Sr. while being a figure that is worthy of Hank III redoing his material...Still, this (like all of Hancock's music) is an album that let's you know you've had one too many...Not that that's a bad thing!!! Download (buy a booster pack if necessary), open a cold one (or a hard bottle, if that's you're thing) and get drunk and cry about the thing that got away!!! Enjoy!!!

They Say All Music Guide

Wayne Hancock is an anachronism. Working on either side of the dawn of the 21st century, Hancock’s music is a direct descendant of the classic honky tonk sound of the late 1940s and early ’50s. Hank and Lefty provided the template, and no one in the last 35 years or so has put it to better use than Wayne Hancock. No real surprises here: juke joints, loneliness and life on the road form the basis of most songs, and Hancock gives his players plenty of room to play. Lloyd Maines’ no-frills production stays out of the way, letting the performances speak for themselves with clarinet and trombone coloring a few tracks (as they have in the past). Producer Maines and guys like guitarists Dave Biller and Paul Skelton have been with Hancock since the beginning, so there’s an easygoing vibe to the whole album. These guys know the drill, and it allows Hancock to cut his records the old way: set up live in the studio and get it on tape. Limited or no rehearsal, first or second takes and the whole record is completed in less than three days. You can actually hear Hancock shouting out the solo order on most of the tracks. Tulsa’s got a few more slower tunes than others in the catalog, but the band can still rev it up for songs like the title track and “Goin’ to Texas When I’m Through.” Wayne Hancock isn’t a revivalist; he’s a throwback. He lives this life and he’s been doing it for years. “Shooting Star from Texas” sums it all up perfectly; an autobiographical tune written in that simple, direct, everyday style that Hank Williams was so brilliant at. Wayne Hancock doesn’t offer anything new on Tulsa, but that’s not the issue. Since there are so few genuine honky tonkers today and Hancock is so good at what he does, it’s actually refreshing to hear such a pure American music. – Sean Westergaard
