Hayes Carll - 'Trouble In Mind'

Now this is a near perfect 'Americana/alt-country' album! Mr Carll sounds to me like Bobby Bare,Jr and Steve Earle with just the right amount of the Rolling Stones mixed in. Great songs about shadowy characters set in dive bars...perfect.

Here is his brilliant cover of Tom Waits' 'I Don't Wanna Grow Up' and the equally wonderful 'She Left Me For Jesus'

    I just got turned on to Hayes Carll. Great stuff. I actually just Googled "Hayes Carll "I don't wanna grow up" Bobby Bare jr" to see if anyone else heard what I did. Given Hayes' delivery on that song he should send a royalty check to both Tom Waits and Bobby Bare, Jr.
