“Navy Veteran Barry Stinson sent me this story and I was immediately entranced. He and I pieced it together over a few emails. It tells the story of a merchant skipper who shunned piloting a slave ship because it was immoral and would haunt him and focuses on the hardiness of his crew. Hard A’Port has a grooving rhythm, haunting harmony and is a wonderful tale,” said Slaughter.

The 15-track album, Ridin’ Through the Country includes numerous chart singles, including the title track, “Plus One More Day,” “Alberta Clipper,” “Common Ground,” and “Goin’ Up the Mountain.” Radio programmers can download the entire album, including this new single, “Hard A’Port,” at AirPlay DirectGet It Played, or request a direct download link for the whole of the album.
