EDITORS’ NOTES

Mark Seliger is best known for his innovative photography of legendary musicians and celebrities. He also lends his creative talent to music—fronting the alt-country outfit Rusty Truck. As the band’s second album, Kicker Town, reveals, part of Seliger's gift for photographing musicians must come from his natural passion for the craft itself. The Texas native brings just enough twang to give the tunes a natural, country-kissed lilt. The same is true of the arrangements; although the roots-rocking “Emancipation” and “Good As Gone” move along at a good clip, most of the tracks take an easy-rolling, midtempo road adorned by a tasteful steel guitar swoop here, a soulfully sawing fiddle there, and just the right mix of earthiness and artfulness.

Great Country Music

I think this is real traditional country music with a hint of Texas swing.
Really hope radio plays this great music.

Mainline country

Not sure why you are labeling this band as alt-country. This band sounds mainstream country to me. If anything, I would label Taylor Swift, Lady A, and others like them alt-country.

As pure as country can get...

Emancipation alone could make these guys superstars! just a personal favorite… such a great tune.
