40 Rod Lightning

Season 2 Episode 205 | 56m 47s

40 Rod pays tribute to legends like Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash. The group pens its own tunes, and takes music by bands like Metallica and Pink Floyd and Dixie. Their name comes from a term for white lightning ‘of the most villainous description’, as it is deadly at forty rods. They describe their music as “insurgent north country” and “country that you won’t hear on the radio.”
