KING KHAN wrote following words about Andy Dale Petty:
I met Andy Dale Petty in Huntsville, Alabama, he had a magazine in his pocket with all the state train routes in it and was telling me about how he loved to hop trains like the hobos back in the day. He taught me how to run next to a train and hop it, always make sure you can see the spokes in the wheel turning, if you cant than the train is too fast and you might lose a limb or two or your head. He fell asleep on a cold wooden porch that evening and then woke everyone up with his lovely geetar playing in the morning. Alabama is known as the place where the first confederate flag was designed and raised, incidentally it was also the place where the first rocket was made to take humans to the moon. Thankfully both slavery and moon travel were abandoned and replaced by white castle, waffle houses and welfare. People like Andy Dale make America the beautiful nightmare that it is. His guitar playing and hobosexuality preserve the fruits of the nation in a jar rather than a petri dish. He may not be able to turn water into wine but he can sure make a rainy afternoon feel like pickles and orange crush. The world would be a cold place without Andy Dale and his geetar, so if you see him by the train tracks, buy him a can of beans and throw a hotdog in it.... he deserves it.

AMERICANA OLD TIME RELIGION FOLK MUSIC MIXED UP WITH WESTERN BALADS
From the desk of Reverend Beat-man: One day I was in my office and a letter came from King Khan with a CD of Andy Dale Petty. He said Andy is a Trainer, a boy that runs freight trains with his Guitar and travels from town to town and sings Songs... The CD he send was probably recorded somewhere in a train or in a car... It sounded Fantastic so I put him in a Studio near where he lives to record those 13 Songs for Voodoo Rhythm Records.
Andy has a great way of playing his instrument and his voice is sometimes so wrong that it's Beautiful to listen too, and he's only fucking 18 years old godamit! Andy Takes the Roots of Woody Guthrie and Young Bob Dylan and makes them his own. On this Album there are 13 songs, including a couple covers and Traditionals, but most of them are written by Andy himself, and they are Great Songs in the Tradition of Americana Folk and western Ballads; with Banjo, Guitar and sometimes a sweet little church Organ that catapults you into another dimension and pushes you into another world.
