Peter Wolf: "Nothing but the Wheel"

This is one of the best crossover tracks by a great rock singer/songwriter giving us a modern country classic. Peter Wolf of J. Geils Band fame in the studio with an all-star line up cutting the perfect road song for his 2002 solo album Sleepless. (And yes, the highway 41 in this song is the same road Dickie Betts was 'born rollin' down in the backseat of a Greyhound bus.' Or so the song goes.)

There's a nice nod to Steve Goodman's "City of New Orleans" in that first verse: "houses, farms and fields..." Nice track and an impressive list of supporters! Thanks.
