Wayne Mills by definition is one that is a stiff-necked, country troubadour with an affinity for Honky-tonks, possessing a style of rustic simplicity.
Introduction
  Outlaw by definition is one that is unconventional or rebellious.  Wayne Mills by definition is one that is a stiff-necked, country troubadour with an affinity for Honky-tonks, possessing a style of rustic simplicity.
   From the little town of Arab, nestled on top of Brindlee Mountain in Northern Alabama, Wayne Mills was the average country boy steeped in the Southern vernacular of GOD, GUNS AND FOOTBALL.  Young Mills was instilled with many honorable qualities and traits by his father, Jack Mills, and was raised on the values of a working man.  Like most working men, young Mills listened to blue collar anthems sang by Hank Williams Jr., Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard.  Little did the future performer know that the heavy beat, and misfortune laden lyrics, of outlaw country would lay the ground work for his music career.

  Mills, a two sport athlete, playing baseball at Wallace State Junior College in Hanceville, AL and football player at, the legendary, University of Alabama knows all about hard work and dedication.
  The athlete turned musician has made a life for himself and his family through music.  With more than fifteen years of touring experience, Wayne has proven himself the consummate performer with a huge following in the Southeast while also gaining notoriety in other parts of the country, as well as Europe and Australia.  As a testament to the bands success, country music super stars Jamey Johnson and Blake Shelton, Cross Canadian Ragweed, as well as American Idol winner, Taylor Hicks all opened for Mills on their way to the top.  Mills has most recently been touring with fellow Alabamian and close friend, Jamey Johnson.  The band is also playing select dates with Southern rockers, Blackberry Smoke as well as headlining their own single dates.
  Wayne’s latest record, “The Last Honky Tonk,” is receiving rave reviews, nationally and internationally, and it is sure to be a catapult in Wayne’s music career.  “The Last Honky Tonk,” the album’s title cut, is currently racing up the European Charts.  The last poll had the single at #39 overall in Europe, with its highest position at #2 in Belgium.  The video for the the title cut has been airing on The Country Network and has been featured on GAC’s website in the U.S.A.
   Jason “Rowdy” Cope, Jamey Johnson’s guitar player, flew Wayne to Hollywood, CA to record and produce “The Last Honky Tonk.”   “The record that we left California with is as true to me as anything I’ve ever released,” says Wayne.  “It blends my country roots with the experience of the real world I’ve come to know.”
  The sound … Start with Waylon, throw in some Charlie Daniels and Lynyrd Skynyrd, add a dash of Johnny Cash and mix it all up.  That’s “The Last Honky Tonk,” and that’s Wayne Mills in a nutshell.  
  “My music is the combination of my country roots with the real world I have come to know,” explains Mills.  The Last Honky Tonk is the latest chapter in the songbook of Wayne Mills’ life: leaving no stone unturned.

Bragging rights
From Wayne’s peers: On Wayne’s album, “The Last Honky Tonk” JAMEY JOHNSON- i have it saved on itunes as wayne mills "the album" which is kinda like when hollywooders call their movie "blank blank: the movie" after a title which usually needs no further introduction. and self titled albums are often over rated and not at all definitive of the person whose name appears in duplicate on every flat surface of the album. since the music on this album is nothing if not definitive of wayne, to me, this has always been "wayne mills: the album" COLT FORD- I think Wayne Mills is one of the last Great Honky Tonk singers. He is a Real Country Singer and someone the world needs to hear.” BLAKE SHELTON- “I’ve known Wayne for over twelve years and in that time I’ve come to understand that it’s not a party until Wayne gets there. His music and personality bring out the best in people around him. P.S. Don’t tell him I said these nice things about him!” RANDY HOUSER- “I’ve been listening and dig Wayne’s new record. Most of all, the fact that Wayne and the overall sound of the album are not like anything I’ve heard in a long time. Great stuff!”
