Chris Shiflett, renowned for his axe-wielding prowess in Foo Fighters, takes a surprising turn with his latest single, “Cowboy Song.” This country rendition of Thin Lizzy’s classic injects new life into the iconic track, complete with twanged-up twin leads and pedal steel. It’s a toe-tapping homage to the storytelling prowess of Phil Lynott, set to a late 70s Waylon Jennings vibe with a dash of outlaw charm.

From the heart of the studio at 606, Shiflett and his band crafted a rendition that pays tribute to the guitar greats while adding their distinctive flair. With Shiflett’s twangy solos and straight-copped nods to Thin Lizzy’s original, “Cowboy Song” becomes a fresh take on a timeless favourite.

But the EP, “Starry Nights & Campfire Lights,” doesn’t stop there. Alongside “Cowboy Song,” listeners are treated to an Americana rendition of Hanoi Rocks’ “Don’t You Ever Leave Me” and unreleased live and acoustic versions of tracks from Shiflett’s acclaimed album “Lost At Sea.”

As Chris gears up for his headline tour across the UK and Ireland, excitement builds for what promises to be an unforgettable series of performances. Joined by ‘Wild’ Willy Cobb and Kezia Gill, the tour is set to showcase Shiflett’s multifaceted talent as a modern-day guitar hero and captivating frontman.

Beyond the stage, Shiflett continues to leave his mark on the guitar world with his video series “Shred with Shifty,” featuring interviews with guitar legends like Nile Rogers, Alex Lifeson, and Rivers Cuomo. It’s a testament to Shiflett’s ongoing dedication to his craft and his ability to connect with fans on a deeper level.

As Chris’s journey continues, from punk veteran to Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, “Cowboy Song” serves as a testament to his versatility and enduring passion for music. So saddle up and join Chris Shiflett on a journey through the Wild West of rock, country, and everything in between.
