"The drunks have turned to strangers and the stars are out of tune As I think about the one who might’ve saved me I know you’re out there somewhere ‘tween the highway and the moon"
Texas native Hayes Carll has written rousers (“One Bed, Two Girls, Three Bottles of Wine”) and rockers (“Stomp and Holler”). He had a swaying, reckless, unpolished way of writing, but his latest record – the first in 5 years - strips back the layers to reveal the quiet perfection of ‘normal’ life after the doors to the last honky-tonk on your too-long tour close. It revels in time shared in the company of those you love and sometimes leave, like the simple enchantment of watching your young son master a new card trick. This seasoned writer, who can take simple observations and turn them into poetry, has written an album so stripped down it’s nearly butt naked, as he matures into seasoned songwriter that plays country in cousin form. Less is less and more is more. It’s all for the sake of the song. CV
