Clever songwriting that crosses genre lines

Hayes Carll’s list of accomplishments is long. His third album, 2008’s Trouble In Mind, earned him an Americana Music Association Award for Song of the Year (for “She Left Me for Jesus”). The follow-up, KMAG YOYO, was the most played album on the Americana Chart in 2011 and spawned covers by artists as varied as Hard Working Americans and Lee Ann Womack, whose version of “Chances Are” garnered Hayes a Grammy nomination for Best Country Song. 2016’s Lovers and Leavers swept the Austin Music Awards, including Album of the Year, and was his fourth record in a row to reach number one on the Americana Airplay chart. Kelly Willis and Kenny Chesney have chosen to record his songs, and his television appearances include The Tonight Show, Austin City Limits and Later w/Jools Holland. Hayes is the rare artist who can rock a packed dance hall one night and hold a listening room at rapt attention the next. His latest album, What It Is, finds Hayes neck-deep in life. His signature cleverness and aptitude for so-personal-you-might-miss-it political commentary is as strong as ever rooted solidly in the present, revealing an artist in the emotional and intellectual here and now. The result is a musically ambitious and lyrically deep statement of an artist in his creative prime.
