‘Truck Drivin Man‘ is one side of Afton Wolfe’s new 2-song e-cassingle (as he calls it) and it finds the baritoned singer deep in a particularly dark murder ballad, telling as it does of a murderous spree focused on truckstop prostitutes. ‘Truck Drivin Man‘ was written by Wolfe’s friend Mark Mann, who he met while living in Hattiesburg, a place where in reality such events are a not infrequent occurrence.
Afton Wolfe was born in McComb and raised in Meridian, Hattiesburg, and Greenville, Mississippi – an area that can make a claim as the origin of three American music forms – country, blues and rock and roll – all of which Wolfe draws on for his own idiosyncratic music. Afton Wolfe has a new full album out on February 3rd.
