The Lawmen, Norfolk Southern Corporation's very own band of corporate musicians have released their new CD "Winning Streak." With some of the best friends, fans and musical collaborators anywhere, The Lawmen really are on a Winning Streak. For starters, the incredibly talented Rex Blancett and Dale Henson joined the band in 2010 following the departure of long time friends Dale McCoy and E.T. Jackson.
Rex has performed with everyone from Percy Sledge to Frank Siatra and everywhere from the Opry in Myrtle Beach to the stages of Vegas. As lead vocalist and lead guitarist for The Lawmen, he wrote the title song "Winning Streak", as well as Stone Cold Heart adn Smooth (Southern 4501) a song about a soon to be restored Southern Railway Steam Engine.
Dale Henson spent the early part of his career in musical theater shows in Missouri. He was a favorite at the Carolina Opry in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina before joining The Lawmen, where he shines on vocals, keyboard, trumpet and banjo.
The winning streak got longer when the Lawmen heard from long time friend and former Trainmaster Paul Giles from Greenville, SC who brought the band
a song he and Jennifer Prince wrote and titled "This Old Car."
To top the new CD project off railroad style, friend and songwriter David "Briz" Conard from Blemar, N.J., wrote Rollin' Out Again, the theme song for Norfok Southern's 21st Century Steam Program.
Thanks to all of you who enjoy our music and support The Lawmen. Together we'll keep that winning streak right on track.
