TK # 53 - Hayes Carll - Trouble In Mind (2008)

For those who believe Steve Earle lost his way after 2000’s Transcendental Blues, you need to check out Hayes Carll’s Trouble in Mind. His world-weary drawl and slyly dry sense of humor give just the right amount of punch to beat-up narratives like “Drunken Poet’s Dream”, “Bad Liver And A Broken Heart” and the how-could-he-compare lament of “She Left Me For Jesus”.
