Vince Gill Brings the Train Song Back to Country Music

"I Don't Wanna Ride the Rails No More" Included on Upcoming Album, 'OKIE'

Before there were trucks in country music, there were trains — and Vince Gill’s newest song is bringing them back. “I Don’t Wanna Ride the Rails No More” will be the first track on his upcoming album, OKIE, set for release on August 23.

“It’s kind of a neat song about yearning,” he told during an interview in his Nashville living room. “I don’t necessarily want to quit traveling and it’s not autobiographical — that I’m going to get off the tour bus and stop touring. That’s not going to happen! But it’s just a song of yearning for someone to fall in love and find a companion, and not really necessarily know when he was gonna find one — but he did.”
