I'm gonna slowly lower you into the high energy of this week's artist....
This is an acoustic rendition that might just win you over before you delve into their extensive electric catalogue at depth.
Known for their hard hitting southern rock and overtly political songwriting -The Truckers bring so much more to the table than meets the eye. Wiping their ass with the Confederate flag, and chipping away at Southern stereotypical mindsets that have haunted their neck of the woods for generations.
The opening track from the 11th studio album "American Band" sung by Cooley, tells the story of the Hispanic teenager "Ramon Casiano" murdered on the US/ Mexico border by a future NRA executive back in the 30's.
The album certainly serves up smorgasbord of political question marks and controversy, perfectly timed with the rise of Americas' great, orange leader.
