Radio is embracing FLYNNVILLE TRAIN’s latest single, “The One You Love,” making the track the #1 stream and #3 download on Play MPE its first week of release. “It’s a real departure for us,” says the band’s lead singer Brian Flynn. It’s an honest love song that everyone can relate to.” Written by members of The Kentucky HeadHunters (Richard & Fred Young, Doug Phelps), the single is now available on Whiskey Bent Records/Flying Island Entertainment via Play MPE. “The One You Love” is the first release from the band’s upcoming CD, due out the first quarter of 2013.
Says Richard Young: “This is one of those magical love songs that comes along just once in a while. The Kentucky HeadHunters are very pleased to write a tune that contributes to Flynnville Train’s career. We just listened to the track, and they did a marvelous job with it. I am sure it will touch a lot of people.”
“Richard pitched it to us,” recalls lead guitarist Brent Flynn.” And as soon as we heard it we knew we had to record it. We’ve performed it live everywhere and the feedback from the fans has been amazing.”
Labeled by their fans as “America’s band,” FLYNNVILLE TRAIN are as comfortable sharing the stage with Country superstars Toby Keith, Blake Shelton, Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley as they are with rockers Iron Butterfly, Molly Hatchett and The Marshall Tucker Band.
After a two-year absence, the band also made a welcome return to the CMA Music Festival 2012, drawing huge crowds to their multi-genre, electrifying live shows throughout the busy week. FLYNNVILLE TRAIN’s music is an irresistible, powerful and hard-driving combination of Southern Rock and Country, with heart-stopping guitar riffs and vocals as gritty as a long dirt road.
“We’ve also totally re-worked our team” comments Brian. “We’ve been busy touring and obviously working in the studio as well.” Upcoming appearances stateside include shows with Tracy Lawrence, The Kentucky HeadHunters and Gretchen Wilson. Last summer the band made their international debut at the prestigious CRAPONNE FESTIVAL in France and later this month FVT heads overseas to Poland for the 31st MRAGOWO FESTIVAL.

ABOUT FLYNNVILLE TRAIN
The Indiana-based group was formed in 2001 by brothers Brian and Brent Flynn. The band spent several years playing clubs in the Midwest and caught the ear of Richard Young (KHH) who produced some tracks on them. Toby Keith heard FVT and signed them to his record label, Show Dog Nashville. They released a self-titled album for the label in the Fall of 2007, which generated two BILLBOARD Hot Country Chart hits–“Last Good Time” and “Nowhere Than Somewhere.” An amicable parting followed a few years later. Brian Flynn sings lead vocals and Brent Flynn plays lead guitar and sings harmony. Tommy Bales has been the driving beat behind the brothers for over 12 years, and in 2009 was voted Number One Up-and-Coming drummer in Modern Drummer magazine. The group’s newest member, Joseph Shreve, plays bass and brings influences ranging from Rush to Lynyrd Skynyrd.
