Austin Webb’s ‘All Country on You’ Is A True Story For Him
In a chat with Taste of Country Nights’ Sam Alex, Webb explains how he did it. “All Country on You” is one of the few songs that the singer didn’t write himself.

Austin Webb Talks ‘All Country On You,’ Upcoming Album and Poetic Influences
Among Austin Webb‘s greatest influences as a country musician are legendary artists like Johnny Cash, Vince Gill and Hank Williams, Jr., to name a few, but there are also a couple names you might not expect to hear: classic writers Robert Frost, Dylan Thomas and O. Henry.
At just 9 years old, Webb started reading their works and trying to write his own poetry. His work was “finger painting” compared to the professionals, Webb says, but it was certainly good practice for his future career.
