Charley Crockett Releases New Song “Solitary Road”

Listen Here


New Album $10 Cowboy out April 26th via Son of Davy/Thirty Tigers

Plays Three Sold-Out Headline Shows @ London’s Hoxton Hall
May 6th, 7th & 8th

Today, Charley Crockett releases “Solitary Road,” a third preview from his upcoming album $10 Cowboy, out April 26th via Son of Davy/Thirty Tigers. For $10 Cowboy, Crockett wrote freely, over a two-month period, as he wound his way across the United States on the back of a tour bus. The resulting songs—raw, personal, vivid portraits of a country in transition—ended up being connected.


Crockett, who Rolling Stone dubbed “a must-see live performer,” will return to the capital in May, playing what will be three electric sold-out nights at London’s Hoxton Hall on May 6th, 7th & 8th. For further ticket info head HERE.


$10 Cowboy was recorded at Arlyn Studios in Austin, TX, produced by Crockett and his long-time collaborator Billy Horton. It was recorded live to tape, with anywhere from 6-12 musicians on each track, giving the songs the feel of a live performance. It’s a sound Crockett has been after for years. “The reason I cut it on tape is, when you get the right folks in the room, great players rise to the occasion. When that red light is on and the tape is rolling, you get the magic of a performance.”

It’s exactly what he achieved with $10 Cowboy. Regular bandmates Kullen Fox, Nathan Fleming, and Mario Valdez are joined by some of the genre’s most talented players—Rich Brotherton, Kevin Smith, Dave LeRoy Biller, Jason Lee Moeller, T. Jarrod Bonta and others, including a string quartet. Lauren Cervantes and Angela Miller sing on the album. While the musicianship and accompaniment are exquisite, they are also subtle, placed joyously, yet judiciously across the album.
