I’ve been learning that the leaving, and the barely breakin even, it’s just a part of life for you & me. And I’ve been living with a lonliness that’s got down in my bones, I guess it’s just another phase of bein’ free…
Well the suns gonna rise in the east
and I’m bound to stumble on a Saturday night
passion is painful but it’s free
love is a mean hateful business sometimes

Wildly literate, utterly slackerly, impossibly romantic, absolutely a slave to the music - Hayes Carll is completely committed to the truth and unafraid to skewer pomposity, hypocrisy and small-minded thinking.
Don’t take my word for it. Checkout Carll’s performance in Studio 1A from this Tuesday
The Texas country station on pandora is the absolute best.
Y’all Click above and check it out!!!
I had a damn good time recently watching these fellas put on a helluva show at historic damn Gruene Hall in New damn Braunfels, Texas. Hailing from Oklahoma, The Damn Quails play some damn good Americana music, and this is a damn good video recording to prove it. And if you’ve got any damn sense, then I know you’ll be buying their damn good record, Down The Hatch.
if a radio station would promote itself by saying “today’s mcmurtry isbell shaver departed zz top jonathan tyler blues rock”..i’d listen

Greg Reichel is one of my favorite Texas Songwriters with great talent, songs substance & heart
—Brett Dillon, The Brett Dillon Experience, 95.3 The Range
Raised in Oklahoma and now a resident of Dallas, Gregg Reichel is the best kind of alt-country songwriter, one who enjoys both, the old-school, rural soul of Townes Van Zandt and the snotty genius of Ryan Adams
—Darryl Smyers of the Dallas Observer
