The Best Americana of 2011

If you ask a critic or music fan to define Americana, be prepared for an avalanche of diverse responses of opinion. Still, there remain some constant benchmarks, such as pedal steel, fiddle, acoustic guitars -- and good songwriting.

Hayes Carll: 18 July 2012 - Cincinatti, OH

Hayes Carll has had little to no reception from mainstream Nashville culture, yet he has become the most exciting thing to happen to the country music industry since Garth Brooks.

Hayes Carll: KMAG YOYO & other American Stories

Carll has a Texas sense of humor, by which I mean he often writes BIG songs to emphasize the outrageousness of human situations. When he sings of love, he means lust, between a man and a woman so mismatched that only sex and booze can make the relationship work.

Hayes Carll: Trouble in Mind

Carll’s voice sounds like he’s halfway laughing and halfway crying, but he’s always a sucker for a good joke. He knows there’s more depth in humor than pathos -- and it’s a lot more fun.
