Pure Grain’s ‘Truckin Song’

| April 02, 2009

Headed up by OTR driver Chris Taber, the Cincinnati by way of Nashville band Pure Grain blends honkytonk with traditional country, blues and rock ‘n’ roll toward a hard-driving sound exemplified by “Truckin Song” (check out the video via the link or embedded below, featuring Taber in a Freightliner). The song is from their upcoming record “>A Fine Blend,” slated for release by Sol Records quite soon and includes such lyrical gems as:

“>Breaker breaker one-nine. Come on back, can you hear me?”

Visit Sol’s website for more info on the band and their upcoming release.
