Hayes Carll

Thursday 13 October 2016

Hayes Carll is at the forefront of a generation of American singer/songwriters. A Texas native, his style of roots-oriented songwriting has been noted for its plain-spoken poetry and sarcastic humour. He was nominated for a 2016 Grammy Award for Best Country Song, and American Songwriter awarded him with Song of the Year for “Another Like You” in 2011, the same year he was nominated for Artist of the Year at the Americana Awards.

Now Hayes has returned with a powerful and raw set of songs produced by Joe Henry (Glen Hansard, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt) entitled Lovers and Leavers. The record marks a new chapter for Hayes - he has gone through much personal change in the 5 years since his last release, and he mines the depths of these experiences on this record. Sonically, he has stripped away some of the country sounds that marked his previous records, thus highlighting his well-worn voice and placing his straightforward and heartfelt lyrics at the centre.

Listen back to Acid Country for a live set from Hayes Carll. Studio 5 Live is proudly brought to you by PBS.
