Conversation with country rocker Will Wesley and Swedish country singer Florian Fox

By Judy Shields

Hollywood, California (The Hollywood Times) 07/10/2024

Country rocker Will Wesley recently released his new single and music video, “Honky-Tonk U.S.A.” Paying homage to his heroes and those who paved the way, Wesley focuses on how things have changed in modern times. With lyrics that resonate deep to the core, “An assembly line cowboy in a new Chevrolet, their making hits cause it fits… down in Honky-Tonk U.S.A” may not sit well with everyone, but it shows where many feel the music industry is today. The new single and music video for “Honky Tonk U.S.A.” was premiered by Cowboys & Indians and can be seen HERE.

About Will Wesley:

Will Wesley

Grit has forever seeped from the pores of country rocker Will Wesley. He was born a rebellious one, sneaking into bars at 15 to play the blues that pumped through his veins. But today, Wesley follows in the footsteps of artists such as Eric Church and Jason Aldean, more than ready to show off his rock edge as much as his tender, lyrical heart. And despite a career that has already found him touring several countries in Europe and Southeast Asia, performing in venues such as the Switzerland International Country Music Hall of Fame and the Jackson, Mississippi Civil Rights Museum, playing alongside the likes of Alabama, Jason Boland & the Stragglers and Robert Cray, this is somewhat a new beginning for Will Wesley as he finds himself ready to conquer the world.
