Porter Wagoner

Porter Wagoner

Porter Wagoner, with his trademark rhinestone Nudie suits, high-swept silver pompadour, rail-thin frame and spectacularly weathered face, is an instantly recognizable figure. However, as the striking releaseWagonmaster makes clear, he is, as always, far from predictable. A resolute tradition bearer and Grand Ole Opry star since 1957, Wagoner's extraordinary far-reaching song catalog has also consistently pushed country music into new, often chilling directions, and Wagonmaster boldly upholds his unusual approach. This set--recorded in three days flat--not only verifies the 79-year old Wagoner's still impressive capacity, it cements him as a commanding, relevant force in American music.
