Who is Wayne Hancock?

Wayne "The Train" Hancock is a country musician.

Hancock began writing songs at the age of 12, and at 18 won a talent contest called the "Wrangler County Showdown." Immediately after the contest, he was shipped to recruit training and served four years with the United States Marine Corps. In 1994 he performed in the musical Chippy. Hancock released his debut album in 1995, and has continued to tour and record albums since then. He lives in Austin, Texas.

His music is comparable to that of Hank Williams and Hank Thompson.

Hank Williams III, who is often compared to Hancock, has recorded some of Hancock's material, including "Thunderstorms and Neon Signs" and "87 Southbound". The two have also recorded a live duet of Hancock's "Juke Joint Jumpin'".

In April 2014, he was injured in a motorcycle accident leading to serious injuries, including a collapsed lung and fractured elbow.
