Dale Watson | The Truckin' Sessions: Volume Two

Dale Watson has made a career out of defying contemporary country music standards. The Austin, Texas maverick has remained tried and true to the spirit of authentic country giants like Johnny Cash, Buck Owens and Merle Haggard, and in the process has grown into an artist equal in stature.  Over his 25-plus year career, Dale has released one country classic after the next, while raising the roof with fiery performances at the smallest of honky-tonk dives to legendary music halls like The Grand Ole Opry.

Following up his critically acclaimed 2007 release From The Cradle To The Grave, Dale Watson returns with his second album on Hyena Records entitled The Truckin' Sessions: Volume Two. The collection reprises the most celebrated album in his discography, 1998's The Truckin' Sessions. A tribute to truck-driving men (and even a truckin' queen), the album's 14 songs pay homage to those who commandeer a mighty 18-wheeler rig for their livelihood. Through his sharp songwriting and soulful baritone vocals, Dale captures both the humor and sadness of lives lived on the road, while empathizing with these iconic characters of America's highways. Abetted by his seasoned band that has logged countless road miles themselves, The Truckin' Sessions: Volume Two is a big wheeled, classic country ride not to be missed.

Dale Watson's The Truckin' Sessions: Volume Two is available In-Stores and Online on April 21.
