Personalities | Wes McGhee | Country Rock & The Outlaws | Country
(Vocals, guitar, b. 1948)
McGhee was England’s contribution to the Outlaw movement. Though he grew up in Leicestershire, England, and played in rockabilly legend Gene Vincent’s last band, McGhee was such an ardent fan of progressive country that he travelled to Austin, Texas, in 1978 and befriended artists such as Butch Hancock, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Kimmie Rhodes and Cowboy Jack Clement. With their help he recorded Airmail In Texas and with their inspiration, Long Nights And Banjo Music in England. He remained based in Britain, but frequent trips to the USA kept him connected to the Outlaw and alt.-country scenes there.
