Willie Watson - James Alley Blues

Feels Like: Justin Townes Earle, Joshua Hedley, The Felice Brothers

Had the pleasure of seeing this troubadour at Grimey's yesterday when his new album, Folk Singer Vol. 1, was released. The title lets slip the genre, but the quality is what really defines Mr. Watson. Watson brings weight and a good bit of "high and lonesome" to his roots music. Having been there for Old Crow Medicine Show's early years, all the chops are there. Watson is playing Music City Roots tonight and Station Inn tomorrow. Check it out if you can spare the time.
