Tilford Sellers And The Wagon Burners, from Columbus, Indiana play straight-up original Honky Tonk dance tunes and Hillbilly Boogie. It is true country with a little Bakersfield Sound and Western Swing attitude thrown in for good measure.
Go through Tilford Sellers’ swinging doors and find honky tonk so muddy you’re bound to lose your boots. Tilford and his band play cheating songs that won’t make you cry,. Songs of lament waiting for Saturday night and songs that are slightly retro with an occasional hiccup. Their tunes embody the spirit of dancing, drinking, love gained and love lost.
Their first record “What Your Doing To Me,” released in June, 2011 received very positive reviews including a spot on www.nodepression.com. Since this release, they have been busy touring from Kansas City to North Carolina and Michigan to Alabama.
Their second record, a full-length of originals, “Heartaches, Lies, and Cheating Songs” will be released on March 20, 2012
The Wagon Burners say they don’t play shows to sell records. They sell records so they can keep playing music the way it is intended to be played and heard. LIVE!
