Austin To Boston is the 12th album of new material by the award-winning cowboy artist and arguably his most eagerly anticipated. Prior to the album’s release, the first European focus track, “Cowboy’s Prayer,” debuted at #2 on the UK Hotdisc Top 40 chart and quickly rose to #1, where it enjoyed a three-week reign. And pre-release tunes from the album posted on Hampton’s Facebook fan page have helped push his ‘friends’ past the 27,000 mark – a remarkable achievement in today’s cowboy world.
Hampton recorded Austin To Boston in Los Angeles with Joe Diblasi as producer, engineer and arranger, and Gary Bright as executive producer and producer. Drawing from their extensive contacts, Hampton was able to record with some of the finest studio musicians working today, including Grammy Award-winning dobro player Al Perkins, bagpiper Eric Rigler, who played Irish whistle on Celine Dion’s Grammy winning “My Heart Will Go On” from the movie Titanic, steel player extraordinaire Jay Dee Maness from the Desert Rose Band and legendary accordionist Frank Marocco.
