New Dale Watson Album

I received my advance copy of  Dale Watson & His Lonestars new album from Ellen Stanley at Red House Records just in time to debut it last night's show.

A new album by Dale Watson is an event. Since his Hightone debut  with Cheatin' Heart Attack Dale Watson has set the benchmark for modern honky tonk.

I still get  a thrill every time I hear the opening bars of the title track and remember how blown away I was on first hearing the "punk Merle Haggard" one Saturday morning at Yesterday & Today Records back in 1995.
