Flynville Train readies debut on Toby Keith's ShowDog Nashville label
Tuesday, August 14, 2007
– After months of touring opening for Toby Keith, Flynnville Train will release their self-titled debut album on Sept. 11. The Muncie, Ind. Band mixes country and revved-up twin-guitar rock.
The music video for "Nowhere Than Somewhere" made its world-premiere on

The disc was co-produced by David Barrick and Flynnville Train with select tracks co-produced by Kentucky Headhunter Richard Young. Keith's ShowDog Nashville label is releasing the music.
CD reviews for Flynnville Train
On their sophomore release, Flynnville Train continues rolling with their brand of Indiana-steeped Southern Rock cranking up the guitars and forging their own path. Having left their major label deal with Show Dog, Flynnville Train is free to put on record the kind of music they are known for in their live shows - country music with Molly Hatchet-style guitars in your face.

Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones
Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time.
That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
Concert Review: Fogerty lives up to his past
Woodstock 50 may never have happened, but that original monumental event was certainly in the air at John Fogerty's My 50 Year Trip Tour before, during and after.
The before and after was in the choice of songs that came over the speakers including everything from Jefferson Airplane's "Don't You Want Somebody to Love" to The... »»»

For a brief moment last summer, the news of Tony Kinman's death was, if not greatly exaggerated, then at least fortuitously premature.

Until recently, Chris Shiflett took a somewhat obsessive/compulsive approach to his music career. For the past two decades, Shiflett has been the primary guitar foil for Dave Grohl in Foo Fighters; early in his tenure, Shiflett was so self-deprecatingly... »»»
John Paul White, to paraphrase a Steve Earle song, may just be one of the last of the hardcore troubadours. By 'troubadour,' we mean one of those guys that lives to write great songs - more specifically, great country songs - and then get these songs into the ears of folks that... »»»
