G.T. Hurley would be described as a blend of Waylon Jennings and Billy Joe Shaver on the country side, with a seasoning of Tex Ritter and Wylie Gustafson (Wylie & the Wild West) on the Western music side. As such, G.T. Hurley says his music is “Outlaw Western Music.” He goes on to explain that his songs have “elements of cowboy, blues and Southern rock that combine to form ‘Outlaw Western.’ His musical taste comes from folks like Waylon Jennings, Marshall Tucker Band, Johnny Cash and Guy Clark.
Hurley is a 20 year career US Marine, ranch hand, hard rock miner, Quarter Horse breeder and today a Singer Songwriter. While working as a hard rock miner, he was in a serious accident and almost bled out, giving him a better appreciation of life and the plans of his Creator: God first, family second, then the music. His favorite saying is “Life is too short to ride an ugly horse”. GT writes songs about the life he’s lived, what he has felt and what he observes, “the taste of gunpowder, the smell of horse sweat and the damp dark of the hard- rock mine.“
