Tuesday, August 14, 2007
– After months of touring opening for Toby Keith, Flynnville Train will release their self-titled debut album on Sept. 11. The Muncie, Ind. Band mixes country and revved-up twin-guitar rock.
The music video for "Nowhere Than Somewhere" made its world-premiere on

The disc was co-produced by David Barrick and Flynnville Train with select tracks co-produced by Kentucky Headhunter Richard Young. Keith's ShowDog Nashville label is releasing the music.
CD reviews for Flynnville Train
On their sophomore release, Flynnville Train continues rolling with their brand of Indiana-steeped Southern Rock cranking up the guitars and forging their own path.

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music
John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
