<p>Born in the small "Salt Town" Grand Saline,Tx, Tommy Joe Wilson never forgot where he comes from and it's easily heard in his music. Songs about backroads and barrooms are everywhere, but TJW has lived them. He started playing honkytonks at the age of 13 and his seasoned baritone voice draws on influences like George Strait, Conway Twitty, Merle Haggard, Keith Whitley, and Alabama. Tommy Joe pays homage to these heroes in the first track "Country That Rocks" on his cd "The Road Home". The debut single "Cold Beer" is a sing-a-long anthem reminding us that anything goes with beer! Make no mistake that with raucous tunes "Handyman" and "Pistol", Wilson will get the blood pumpin, but easily calm the heart with passion-filled ballads "'Til I Run Out Of Texas" and the title track "The Road Home". This 14 song offering has something for everyone.</p>
