Cody Shuler has led North Carolina’s Pine Mountain Railroad since 2006, and has recorded three albums with the band. His singing, songwriting and mandolin playing is out front with PMR, and now he is fixing to release his first solo project with Rural Rhythm Records next year.
In advance of the album, Rural Rhythm has released a debut single to radio, one of Cody’s songs called My Home Is On This Ole Boxcar. He is supported by Ron Stewart on banjo, Rob Ickes on reso-guitar, Tim Crouch on fiddle, Eli Johnston on guitar, Matt Flake on bass, and Scott Linton on drums.
Shuler shared a few words about the song.
“It seems like bluegrass lovers never get tired of hearing train songs. Maybe because it takes them back to another place in time to when trains were the fastest way to run from something, come home, or just ride. A lot of people would like a life of just traveling from place to place with no worries, that’s what this upbeat song is about, a Hobo with his only home an ever moving boxcar.”
The single is available now to radio at Airplay Direct and on the latest Fresh Cuts & Key Tracks CD from Rural Rhythm.
