Hayes Carll

In a world of shallow and shallower, where it's all groove and gloss, that might seem a hopeless proposition. Last year, "Another Like You," Carll's stereotype's attract duet of polar opposites, was American Songwriter's #1 Song of 2011 – and KMAG YOYO was the Americana Music Association's #1 Album, as well as making Best of Lists for Rolling Stone, SPIN and a New York Times Critics Choice.

But more importantly than the critical acclaim is the way Carll connects with music lovers across genres lines. Playing rock clubs and honkytonks, Bonnaroo, Stones Fest, SXSW and NXNE, he and his band the Gulf Coast Orchestra merge a truculent singer/songwriter take that combines Ray Wylie Hubband's lean freewheeling squalor with Todd Snider's brazen Gen Y reality and a healthy dose of love amongst unhealthy people.

Letting reality do the work has sure worked for the lanky Texan who walks slow and talks slower. Born in Houston, he went to college at Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas – getting a degree in History, then heading back to Crystal Beach to play for

a wild assortment of people either hiding out, hanging on or getting lost in the bars along Texas' Gulf coast.
