Flynnville Train isn't what you would call a traditional country band. They owe more to Lynyrd Skynyrd and Georgia Satellites than to Lefty Frizzell and George Jones.

Having said that, they do fill a niche in the country market with their Southern Rock style. Like Confederate Railroad and the Kentucky Headhunters before them, Flynnville Train provides well crafted, rockin' tunes that serve perfectly as a Saturday night soundtrack.

The bands' searing twin guitars create a solid foundation for vocalist Brian Flynn while the rhythm section rocks hard. Musically, Flynnville Train liberally mixing their rock and blues with country influences.

Since these Indiana boys signed with Toby Keith's label, they have been able to tap into some A-list songwriters such as Scotty Emerick and Craig Wiseman who provides humorous songs like "Last Good Time," "Tequila Sheila" and " Red Nekkid," which show off the band's fun side. "Tell Mama," "Redneck Side of Me" and "Truck Stop In the Sky" show they can rock out and tell a story, while "High On The Mountain" sounds like an instant classic. You won't find any really heartbreakers here, only good time Southern Rock.
