Heartland Rock can be defined as music for America’s “Blue Collar” worker. The first Heartland Rock Music was probably written and performed by Pampa, TX native Woody Guthrie, and is currently in the capable hands of ‘War On Drugs‘ and Eli Young Band. But in the heyday of Heartland Rock in the 1970s, artists like Bob Seger, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and John Mellencamp were entrusted with caring for the genre. And they did a fine job! Those core Heartland Rock artists left us with a catalog of material that entertains and educates us, from their release in the 70s and 80s to this day. This week on Saturday Night Solid Gold, we’re featuring those artists – Tom Petty, Bob Seger, Bruce Springsteen, and John Mellencamp, as well as a handful of others that brought us from the humble beginnings to where we are now.
So, join us for all the fun! Here on the podcast and on Saturday nights, beginning around 6:00 PM CST. You can stream the show here. And feel free to call us with your requests and suggestions at 806.350.1009! We love talking to y’all.
