Honky-Tonk Country from Dusty Woods

The Ultimate Honky-Tonk music of Dusty Woods has its roots in years of bar-band experience.  Shaped by
country, blues and rock 'n roll influences such as Lefty Frizell, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, Eddie Cochran,
BB King and Muddy Waters, Dusty was always a strong supporter of genuine honky-tonk, from traditional
country to blues. Some musicians make you want to dance - Dusty makes you GOTTA dance!
You can download all of Dusty's albums - and individual tracks - here and on Dusty's Bandcamp site.
Dusty's classic honky tonk country music was shaped by early country and rock 'n roll influences such as
Hank Williams, Lefty Frizell, Faron Young, Ray Price, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Eddie
Cochran.  Dusty was always a strong supporter of traditional country music - from classic honky-tonk
country to outlaw with hints of rockabilly and even blues.
Satisfy your taste for honky tonk country music with Dusty's albums!  For example:
Rockabilly (Blue Alberta Moon)

Honky-Tonk Blues By Dusty Woods

There's more to Dusty than just country!  Dusty always felt that blues and country are closely related, despite the differences in feel (compare This Side Of Lonesome and Stormy Blues - different approaches, but the heart-cry is the same).
Dusty's early blues influences included BB King, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, and Sonny Terry.  He relied on his Telecaster, "Gypsy", for some really tasty blues licks.  
From blues instrumentals like Love Slides Away to blues vocals like You Think You've Got The Blues, this is the place for you to get the blues!
