Wheeler Walker Jr – Lincoln – 6.1.16

Wheeler Walker Jr – Lincoln – 6.1.16

Wheeler Walker Jr performed at The Bourbon in Lincoln, Nebraska on June 1, 2016.

Called the filthiest artist in country music today, Wheeler Walker Jr. made Lincoln, Nebraska a tour stop to promote his self financed album, “Redneck Shit.” Traveling support by Nashville’s country-punk duo Birdcloud.

Wheeler could never quite get along with “the man”.  He doesn’t like being told what to do.  Never has.  That’s what his heroes Waylon, Willie, Johnny and Hank taught him. After refusing to censor his songs, Capitol Records Nashville dropped him. (Wheeler being Wheeler, he broke into the studio to steal back his master tapes – but those studios are dark at night, and he ended up stealing some shitty Lee Greenwood album instead.  I’ve still got a framed portrait of the both of us pissing on it while it burned). “Redneck Shit” is produced by the great Dave Cobb (who’s produced Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Jamey Johnson & Wheeler’s old pal Sturgill Simpson) and backed up by a crack band of Nashville’s finest players, this is what country music is supposed to be.
