Good Truckin' Tonite
The 'Mountain aint been real good about keeping it's long ago promise for...err...mountains of truckin' music. Wellll, shit, gotta change that. Yup, more road weary tales for all y'all little shavers. Roll on.
Dale Watson is a modern fella with an old diesel soul,a hard honkytonkin' mothertrucker with no love for Nashville's assembly line cream of the crap. Like fellow traveler Wayne Hancock, Watson's music has the history of country stamped in dust all over his catalogue. Naturally, he don't sell a whole lot rekkids. Shame. If yr gonna start with one (and you really should start), the 'Mountain recommends The Truckin' Sessions. For obvious reasons.
If you've been comin' here for any length of time, and still don't know or worship Dave Dudley, I'm a failure.
Giddyup and Go:
Dale Watson: Good Luck 'n' Good Truckin' Tonite (mp3)
Dave Dudley: I Want a Woman With Handles (mp3)
Eat at yr local truck stop.
