Today’s guest is a country artist that calls New Mexico home.  He’s got a killer baritone voice and you can just tell he’s the real deal.  Will Banister was immersed in the music of Merle Haggard, Hank and George Strait at a young age and you can really hear those influences in his music.  His popularity on Tik-Tok, Instagram and Facebook has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years in response to his no fluff, off the cuff and honest posts.


Along with touring here he's toured Europe to great accolades and he’s even had a song in a Clint Eastwood movie.  He’s a very humble down to earth guy when you’re speaking to him, but when he gets on stage or in a studio his talent speaks for itself.


For our Oklahoma listeners Will’s gonna be playing at Chiggers in Broken Bow on Saturday, May 6th and he’s got a bunch of dates scheduled in Texas including one at Cheatham Street Warehouse on Friday, May 19th.  All his tour date and everything else Will Banister can be found by visiting  Links for this and much more will be found in the show notes for this episode.


So let’s get to it!  Here comes Episode #173 of The Troubadour and our visit with a true country artist.  Mr. Will Banister.
