On the heels of their seventh studio album and first new album in two years, Train will be headlining a free show in New Orleans on December 31 prior to the 2015 College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Allstate Sugar Bowl.

Train has a rich musical legacy including the hits “Meet Virginia”, “Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)” and “Hey, Soul Sister.”

I was able to chat with Train’s lead guitarist Jimmy Stafford on the free concert he and his band mates will be performing at on December 31st that is courtesy of Allstate. We also talk about his band, coming up with songs, football and more.

If you are in New Orleans make sure you stop by the Jax Brewery Parking Lot (418 North Peters Street) at 6:15 p.m. on New Year’s Eve to check out the free Train concert.
