Hayes Carll is influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan, John Prine, Kris Kristofferson, and the writings of Jack Kerouac. He released his debut album, Flowers and Liquor, in 2002, then released his second album, Little Rock, on his own Highway 87; the latter reached the top spot on the Americana charts in 2005. Carll signed with Lost Highway a year later. The label released Trouble in Mind in 2008, which contained the clever “She Left Me for Jesus,” a song Carll co-wrote with Brian Keane. Firmly established as a next-generation singer and writer in the Van Zandt/Guy Clark/Ray Wylie Hubbard style of maverick country-folk, Carll released a second album for Lost Highway, KMAG YOYO in 2011. ~ Steve Leggett
