Hayes Carll is a country music maverick with all the bona fides. PopMatters calls him “the most exciting thing to happen to country since Garth Brooks.” The Los Angeles Times calls him “a full-blooded relative of Hank Williams, Ernest Tubb, and Merle Haggard,” and says “he spins a yarn with fresh wit, details a failure with unflinching honesty, and everything in between remains admirably cliché-free.” The man is clever and funny, but he’s also willing to dig deep and entertain the uncomfortable truths. “I guess you could say I write degenerate love songs,” he admits. “That, and songs about people who’re wedged between not much and even less, people who see how hopeless it is and somehow make it work anyway.”


Hayes grew up in east Texas and released his first album, Flowers & Liquor, in 2002, the same year the Houston Post named him Best New Artist. “She Left Me for Jesus,” a song from his album Trouble in Mind, won the Americana Music Award for Song of the Year in 2008. American Songwriter named “Another Like You” the number one song of 2011, and his third album, KMAG YOYO, was the Americana Music Association’s number one album, as well as making Best Of lists for Rolling Stone, SPIN, and the New York Times. He cites Jack Kerouac, Bob Dylan, Guy Clark, John Prine, and Ray Wylie Hubbard as prime influences, but what he does with those influences is all Hayes Carll.


“Aubrie Sellers is a youngster worth keeping an eye out for,” says Roughstock.com, and the country mega-star Lee Ann Womack says, “Aubrie is a really great singer.” Full disclosure: Lee Ann is Aubrie’s mother, so she may be a wee bit biased, but another big country star, Miranda Lambert, invited Aubrie to sing on her newest album, Platinum, and Aubrey has a great cover of the Screamin’ Jay Hawkins classic, “I Put a Spell on You,” on YouTube, so she’s more than capable of proving herself on her own.
