Bumpkin is as one fan describes it, "The greatest band still alive." Bumpkin is actually a singular artist out of Texas with influences deriving from the Outlaw and Bakersfield sounds. Ray Wylie Hubbard, Johnny Cash, and the Doors are influences the listener will find in his music. More Songs About Drinking and Women Who Left (2007) has been selected by cdbaby as an Editor's pick in it's Outlaw Country genre, and his music is gaining airplay on finer stations around the world who pay tribute to Country the way it used to be and should be.
