About Bob Sumner
About Hayes Carll · The Woodlands, Texas
Hayes Carll’s brings an interesting take on the Texas outlaw tradition, with music that brings the swagger and swing of rock tovintage country traditions, from the perspective of a regular guy with street smarts and stories to tell. Setting his songs in dive bars and small towns, he livened up familiar subject matter with a sharp sense of humour, often making himself the butt of any joke he might crack, such as when he starts a bar brawl with the Almighty during “She Left Me for Jesus.” 16 years into his singer/songwriter career, Hayes has released his 6th studio album,What It Is. It's packed with his familiar dry wit but retains a meditative voice. Some songs make declarations of commitment, others reflect on the tempestuous political climate, and his signature humorous observations are laced with a sense of newfound peace.
