New Carll disc due in February '11

Thursday, October 28, 2010 – Hayes Carll's, new album "KMAG YOYO," will be out Feb 15, 2011. "KMAG YOYO," a military acronym (which stands for Kiss My Ass Guys You're On Your Own), was produced by Brad Jones and is the follow-up to Carll's well-received label debut, "Trouble In Mind" (2008) which Jones also produced.

Carll performed some of the new tracks from the upcoming album on his recent appearance on the PBS concert series Austin City Limits which will begin airing the week of Oct. 30. Carll shares the episode with Robert Earl Keen.

On Nov. 9, Carll will release Grateful For Christmas, a holiday-themed track from the CD to all digital partners for purchase. On the same day, fans can pre-order the CD via HayesCarll.com and receive Grateful For Christmas for free with their album order.

Carll received attention for the song She Left Me For Jesus, which won the Americana Music Award for Song of the Year (2008). This past September, Carll won the Americana Music Award for New/Emerging Artist of the Year.

This winter, Carll tours with the Old 97s, stopping in Nashville, Philadelphia and three nights in New York City.

CD reviews for Hayes Carll

KMAG YOYO CD review - KMAG YOYO
The Houston-bred, Austin-based Hayes Carll is a true Texas troubadour. He stocks his four full-length (and second for Lost Highway) with character-rich tales full of humor and heartache. While there is nothing radically new in this set of shaggy dog songs, Carll continues to reveal his terrific way with words, making his music come vibrantly to life. There's a sense of Carll (or at least characters) pondering growing up and looking for something more out of life throughout this disc. »»»
Trouble in Mind CD review - Trouble in Mind
Lovers, hangovers, gigs and gals - these are just a sampling of subjects Hayes Carll covers on his major-label debut. Following his successful sophomore disc "Little Rock" (2004), which became the first self-released disc to make it to number 1 on the Americana Music Chart, the 32-year-old Texan troubadour returns with a tour de force. Carll opens with "Drunken Poets Dream," where Carll's woman "likes to lay naked and be gazed upon" and "wine bottles are »»»
Little Rock CD review - Little Rock
Hayes Carll is an Arkansas native whose country-rock compositions recall the sounds of Steve Earle or Todd Snyder. His second album was produced by the legendary R.S. Field and features songs co-written by Guy Clark, John Evans and Ray Wylie Hubbard as well as several enjoyable original numbers from Carll's talented pen. The album contains some amazing moments, particularly "Down The Road Tonight," a countrified modernization of Bob Dylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues." Moreover, "Wish I Hadn't »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: For Doug Seegers, no pinching needed – Doug Seegers probably should be pinching himself these days. He's not some country music cover boy or hunk wearing a baseball hat or highlighting a bunch of tattoos. If looking for opposites of what passes for a country musician these days, Seegers would probably just about be the top pick. Yes, he lives in Nashville, but he just retired after... »»»
Concert Review: Cynics be damned, Carter girl endures – Cynical naysayers without a clue would aim their vitriol at Carlene Carter. Yes, she is one of the progeny of the Carter family, the first family of country music. And she is quite proud of it. So much so that after watching Maybelle Carter perform with her sisters and being the daughter of June Carter Cash (not to mention Johnny Cash's... »»»

Finally, Skaggs and White duet Perhaps there are few more beloved names in the world of country and bluegrass music than Ricky Skaggs and his wife Sharon of the country music family act The Whites. The two have been close friends since their teenage years through music, first meeting at a festival where White was performing with her father Buck White and sister Cheryl, and Skaggs was playing with Keith Whitley.... »»»
Douglas dreams on Taking a second look at the two-album deal he had recently signed with the Rounder/Concord group, and then at his busy upcoming touring schedule, Jerry Douglas suddenly realized he didn't have a lot of time to waste. The first album, "Three Bells," a collaboration with fellow resophonic guitar (aka "Dobro") titans Rob Ickes of Blue Highway and the late Mike Auldridge was pretty much ready to go, the sessions having been completed shortly before Auldridge's passing in December 2012 following a lengthy struggle with cancer.... »»»
Trampled by Turtles get wild Trampled By Turtles is an indie folk group, an alt.-country band or a bluegrass act - depending on how you choose to look at them. Perhaps it's best to view the outfit as the ultimate combo platter consisting of just about everything that's good about American music. They play wonderfully, yet they also write intelligent songs that draw everyone from Townes Van Zandt to Nirvana to Ralph Stanley. It's all good, and some (or all) of these influences can be spotted in most of Trampled By Turtles' enjoyable sounds.... »»»
Anything Goes CD review - Anything Goes
The title of Florida Georgia's second full length is accurate. For the duo of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelly, that means girls, girls and more girls plus an ultra dose of partying. That is evident from the refrain of the title track, which, of course, focuses on Friday night activities. "I brought the songs and you brought the party/Only one way to do it up right..."  »»»
Old Boots, New Dirt CD review - Old Boots, New Dirt
Arguing whether or not Jason Aldean's kinda (country) party is, in fact, anything remotely related to true country music is pointless. Aldean is so entrenched in the mainstream country marketplace now, we just need to accept him as he is, the same way we reluctantly accept Taylor Swift as "country." It's mighty tempting to subtitle a review of Aldean's new "Old Boots, New Dirt" release as 'Pickup Trucks & Pickup Lines," »»»
