Warren Haynes w/ Railroad Earth: stream "Company Man" from new album "Ashes and Dust"

Warren Haynes (Gov’t Mule, Allman Brothers Band, The Dead) shares Company Man from his new album Ashes and Dust He teamed up with roots folkies Railroad Earth for this foray into Americana. From Billboard:

It's a song about Haynes' father, which he wrote several years ago and then revised after "kind of interviewing him to make sure that all the facts were accurate" during a trip to New Orleans. "My dad grew up working in a grocery store for 23 years and then the company was gonna close down in the southeast," Haynes recalls. "They said they could relocate him to the West Coast or Northeast or Midwest or something, but he wasn't into it. That's not where his roots were. He didn't want to move his whole family. So he said no and started over and got a job in a factory where kids had more seniority than him. To me it's just a true Southern tale of someone who lived their life by his own standards. He has a lot of conviction, and I've always admired him for it."
