These boys take the myth making and truth telling that is outlaw country music to a higher level in a good ole honkytonk kinda way. With the release of their new album titled "Where the Honkytonk Belongs", The Freightshakers received a well deserved award for Best Outlaw Country Band at the 2015 Ameripolitan Music Awards in Austin, Texas. Fans continue to show their appreciation and recognition with requests for encores long after the last drink has been poured.
