Jesus Evil Highway hails from the backwoods of Rotterdam, drawing from the very roots of country music and then some. With a dark blend of pre-war Western Swing, Oldtime Mountain music, Outlaw- and Hillbilly Country, Bluegrass and a touch of raw Rockabilly, Jesus Evil Highway have been building up a repertoire that incorporates much of their own compositions combined with a fine selection of classic songs and tunes.
Jesus Evil Highway plays beer soaked, down and out, heart on your sleeve country.
Lonesome highways, Death, Booze, Heartache, it's all there. Listening to Jesus Evil Highway you’d swear you were punching in hits from a bygone era jukebox at a forgotten truckstop. Running the gamut from honky tonk barnburners to bottom-of-the-beer-bottle weepers to alt-country rockers, Jesus Evil Highway delivers high harmonies, lonesome sounds and raw-energy country songs that are sure to bring a little salvation and whiskey to all the sinners out there.

Not a Jesus Evil Highway original this time, but a nice dark oldtimer: 'Little Black Train'.
A traditional Southern gospel song dating back to the 1800s and popularized by the Carter Family and Woody Guthrie
It was arranged and recorded by the Carter Family in 1935 and again in 1937.
