A few years ago, my friend Anthony sent me a text message that simply read: Hayes Fuckin’ Carll.
Couldn’t have said it better myself, really. When I listen to Carll’s music, I feel like I’m listening to one of the best country/rock/folk musicians of our time. I’m being serious — name another artist who writes songs like “KMAG YOYO,” “Stomp and Holler,” “Beaumont,” and my ultimate favorite, “I Don’t Wanna Grow Up.”
Oh, and today’s Jam of the Day, “Another Like You.” It was recently made into a video featuring Mary Matalin and James Carville, which you can watch below. If you love it as much as I do, you might just want to text your friends about Carll’s headlining performance tonight at Twangfest with Elizabeth Cook and Kentucky Knife Fight.
That’s right. Hayes Fuckin’ Carll. Tonight. In Saint Louis. Twangfest. Stomp and Holler, ya’ll!
