Hayes Carll delivers songs born of baptism-by-fire experience, world-weary observations, and sharp wit. After releasing two albums independently, Carll found a home at Lost Highway Records and released his 2008 label debut, Trouble In Mind. The album resulted in his nomination for Artist of the Year and became the #1 R&R Americana Album of the Year. Carll has toured nonstop since, always managing to generate another creative venture. 2011’s KMAG YOYO (& Other American Stories) captured Carll as he experimented with elements of fiery rock, twangy country, pensive folk, and even a touch of gospel that eventually landed his name on several best-of lists, including those for Rolling Stone, Spin, and the New York Times Critic’s Choice. The album also received Americana’s Music Association’s #1 Album of the Year award. After a few years of songwriting and personal reflection, Carll released one of his most personal albums to date, Lovers and Leavers, in 2016. Catch the rare and unique collaboration of Hayes with two dear friends, plus a solo performance in some classic MusicFest venues!
