I think this is the first time I've posted a country Thing. Surprising, as it's one of my favourite types of music. Or at least the old school stuff. Mention country music today and most people think of the cringe-inducing brand of American pop with banjos and an accent that's being spewed out of Nashville.
There's still plenty of 'proper' country around though, this dude being a fine example.
Hayes Carll's third, and probably best, album Trouble In Mind came out in 2008 and showcases his songwriting at its finest. Most of the songs stick with you, but the gorgeous Don't Let Me Fall is among the stickiest and has melodies and a lyric I'll never tire of. The typical acoustic country instrumentation and arrangements won't surprise anyone, but this only helps the meat of the songs to take centre-stage.
