Hayes Carll, Cafe du Nord, San Francisco, 10.18.2008

Yes, I'm in the second row, and yes, he's looking at me. I must admit, I squeed, just a bit.

If you love honky tonk, or roots rock, or folk and Americana, get thee to a record store and get Hayes Carll's latest, Trouble in Mind. Better yet, see him on tour and get it there. You'll fall in love with his sweet melodies and charming onstage presence. What a fantastic musician, and what a good time (thanks be to Hairy Soap for accompanying me).

Go buy this man's record now!

Yeah, "Trouble In Mind" is the best new Country release I've heard in in the last three years. Fucking unbelievable show too.

I can't thank you enough for turning me onto this guy. I think he's going to be around for awhile. Naturally, charting is out of the question, but he's only going to get better.

P.S. God, "It's A Shame" is such a brilliant song!

I saw him at the Strawberry Music Fest this Fall and really liked him too. My brother might even like him. I must remember to mention it. Say Hi to T. for me,

@hairy soap: "best new country release" you've heard in the last three years? Coming from you, that is gold my friend. Testify!

@robie: Hopefully we can tell your brother in person in December. :) Miss him, and miss you (and your leg hair wig)!
