Ray Scott hit the country scene in 2005 with his debut album My Kind of Music, and he’s been waving the traditionalist country flag ever since. With his brand new EP, Honky Tonk Heart, duet out March 1, Ray is sharing an exclusive track, “Trainwreck,” with One Country readers.
“Trainwreck” keeps Ray squarely in the middle of traditional country with it’s pedal steel and boot-stomping melody. The new tune has Ray singing about a specific kind of woman who goes after what she can’t or shouldn’t have.
“You want a husband / but you don’t want one / unless he already belongs to someone / you’re kind of woman lives for the drama / so just wiggle that sweet caboose on down the line / hey trainwreck / this ain’t your station / these loving arms ain’t your destination / some fools gonna fall for your temptation / hey trainwreck / this ain’t your station,” he sings in the chorus.
“We all know one or two of those women at the bar with no conscience and no remorse, the ones taken dudes are best to stay away from,” Ray tells One Country. “Some women should come with a warning sign.”
Ray’s latest EP is anything but a “Trainwreck,” and should have it’s own warning sign—HIGHLY ADDICTIVE. Honky Tonk Heart is set to drop Friday, March. 1.
