Real Country Music From Dusty Woods

Dusty's country music SOUNDS like country music!  This “ultimate honky-tonk” offers a traditional country sound with an outlaw flavour and touches of rockabilly, blues and 50s rock.  

Seasoned by his years of playing bar-band music, Dusty's original country songs have their roots in his early influences, which included Hank Williams, Waylon Jennings, Lefty Frizzell, and Buddy Holly.

Dusty's Country Music Albums



Dusty's country music albums offer classic country guitar twang from Dusty's Telecaster, "Gypsy", a bass line that adds more than just a steady beat, and solid, original country lyrics.  As a songwriter, Dusty was a master of the "hook" and knew how to tell a story - which is the essence of real country.

Most of the songs on Dusty's country albums are originals - but you'll hear definite overtones of artists like Ray Price, Waylon Jennings, Faron Young, Willie Nelson, and even B.B. King.

The Sound Of Lonesome Album



Honky-tonk country in a nutshell!  Like all of Dusty's country albums, "The Sound of Lonesome" features a wide range of honky-tonk country styles - 12 tracks of slice of life, cry-in-your-beer country with touches of outlaw country and blues.  The album includes everything from a country waltz to the dramatic country rock of  "I Understand" to a Ray Price flavour in "There Stands the Jukebox".  Listen for flavours of Waylon Jennings, Buddy Holly, Ricky Nelson, even a touch of BB King.

Too Old To Boogie, Too Young To Die Album



Dusty's second album has been  described as a country boy's "Night Moves".   An album for all the "boomers" out there (and anyone else who likes good country).  There's a taste of humourous 50s rock in "Too Old To Boogie", plus fast shuffles, Canadiana ("On My Way Again"), pure honky-tonk country, and the obligatory country weeper.  Listen for flavours of Faron Young and Willie Nelson.  (Album trivia:  the man  on the album cover is Mrs. Dusty's great-great grandfather.)

Straight Up, No Rocks Album



Solid country honky-tonk the way Dusty likes it - straight up.  Cry-in-your-beer country, country rock, a two-step with a definite Canadian flavour, and the defiant swamp-rock of "Straight Up".  Listen for flavours of Hank Williams Jr., Merle Haggard and Dwight Yoakum.

Patchwork Album



More drinkin' and cryin' and cheatin' country from Dusty to you - light and lively classic country with a touch of blues.   You'll find everything from Canadian country/rockabilly to country weepers like "What A Friend (I Lost Last Night)", a little country rock, even a 50s-type ballad.  Listen for flavours of Sun Label rockabilly, bluegrass, and Sons of the Pioneers.

Tele-Pickin' Bandit Album



Reflecting on the light side and the dark side of the life of a road musician, this album moves through the moods of country music, from light-hearted "party" music like "Tele-Pickin' Bandit" to humourous songs to lovin' and losin' and the pain of the musician's life ("The Road").  Country rock, Canadiana, rockabilly, comedy, country weepers and more.  Listen for flavours of Ricky Scaggs, Jerry Reed and George Jones.  Released in 2009 as the country side of the double album "50" to commemorate Dusty's 50th year as an entertainer. This album is dedicated to the members of the Brotherhood of Telecaster Bandits (the BTB) still out there on the road picking and trying hard to grin.

Honky-Tonk Days Album



Here it is at last, Dusty's 10th album!  The title song, "Honky-Tonk Days", describes what it was like back in Dusty's road-running days, when playing music wasn't just a living, it was fun.  Here you'll find stone country, a humorous touch of fifties, and a chunk of blues like "Lone Frog Blues"  - all the styles that make up what Dusty calls "Ultimate Honky-Tonk".  Listen for touches of New Orleans R&B, Ray Price and BB King.
