Dean Strickland also known as The Hitchhiking Guitarman takes his musical career one ride at a time. Through his hard work, talent and admitted "good fortune," he has safely traversed across Texas, Tennessee and California via the rides of approximately 1000 generous strangers, picking up fans and bolstering a supportive publicity base as he went. He may be a cowboy without a horse, but Strickland has his faith in God. Since 2005, country-western music performer Dean Strickland hasn't just been following his dreams - he's literally been hitchhiking toward them. He recently completed a disc of original songs that he wrote and recorded on the road called "Hitchhiking Guitarman".
There isn't any doubt about where Dean Strickland is coming from on this CD. This is a man who believes in life, his family and his Lord. Strickland's "Hitchhiking Guitarman" on Never Die Records, is a portrait of a man's life - the trials, tribulations, wins and losses that dot the highway of life. A recurring theme in Strickland's songwriting is his enduring Christian faith and his walk with the Lord Jesus Christ is reflected in most of his songs.
Dean Strickland's "Hitchhiking Guitarman" is a country-gospel album with sincerity as its greatest asset. Strickland does worry about the dangers of walking and hitchhiking long distances. He copes by praying. Most country superstars travel to concerts in luxury buses. Many regional country artists trek from gig to gig in mini vans. A real rambling singer, Dean Strickland takes the road less traveled. Information provided by the artist
