Hayes Carll has two stops planned in Northwest Arkansas this spring. The country musician known for his clever lyrics and heartbreaking verses will play at George's Majestic Lounge on April 9, and then he'll be back for Fresh Grass at The Momentary in May.
"I like to tug at heartstrings, find commonality with others, reflect on my own life, and sometimes I do it in a lighthearted way," says Carll about his latest release, "You Get It All." "A lot of musical styles found their way onto this record, but my first and most formative influences came from country music. This is a country singer-songwriter record. It's just unapologetically me."
Carll released his seventh album last year, but audiences have known him since his breakout record, "Flowers and Liquor" (2002). Over the last two decades, he has garnered two Americana Music Awards and a Grammy nomination for Best Country Song. His songs have been recorded by Kenny Chesney, Lee Ann Womack and and a slew of others including Brothers Osborne -- who co-authored his new album's opening track, "Nice Things."
"You Get It All" was produced by guitar legend Kenny Greenberg and Allison Moore, a singer songwriter who frequently collaborates with sister Shelby Lynne. Find about more about Hayes Carll at https://hayescarll.com.
