The Wayne Garner Band Brings Some Texas Grit

The Wayne Garner Band Brings Some Texas Grit

Raised in Oklahoma but claiming Texas as his spiritual home, Wayne Garner wears his Souther roots proudly. While much of his music reflects the struggle he saw growing up, there is nothing contrived about his songwriting- which bleeds emotion.  Signed on to the Smith Music Group label, Wayne Garner and his band have found a way to make music full-time which is a distinct rarity these days for up and coming artists. While some roots and country music can sometimes feel hokey and manufactured, Wayne strikes a chord with his gritty guitar licks and graveled voice that brings gravity to the songs he writes. The Wayne Garner Band will play in Houston on October 28th at the Armadillo Palace.
