The line between truth and fiction when it comes to anything Wheeler Walker Jr. says is blurry but a well-known, highly regarded songwriter like Shane McAnally can get to the core of this controversial new artist, right?
It's a perfectly normal thing to ask of perfectly normal country singers. Everyone reads radio liners scripted to give a radio station added credibility, but Wheeler Walker Jr. is no ordinary country singer.
