Hang-n-Rattle!

After 20 years of helping to keep the tradition of Western music alive, Wylie Gustafson and his crew switch up their game a little bit on their latest effort. There’s a new producer: John Carter Cash. More striking, there’s a new direction: a little more rock, a little less swing. Not that Hang-n-Rattle! departs from Wylie’s trademark tales of rodeo life—far from it, as the presence of cowboy poet Paul Zarzyski as co-writer on seven songs attests.
