Lightning Train


Over the past few years Lightning Train has garnered the reputation as one of
Southern California's hottest traditional country bands. Taking it's influences
from legendary icons such as Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Johnny Cash,
Ray Price, The Byrds, Gram Parsons and many other old and new traditionalists,
Lightning Train continues the legacy of country music that can kick your honky tonk butt
and then (in the words of Hank Williams) "melt your cold, cold heart."

The Lightning Train is Rollin'!
