“Prolific, stylish and uber talented, Charley Crockett is an old-school country music superstar in waiting.” –The Independent
Charley Crockett will release his latest album Jukebox Charley this Friday, April 22nd via Son of Davy/Thirty Tigers. The fourth edition of his Lil’ G.L. tribute series, Jukebox Charley is another great example of how Crockett is enlivening country music by looking back for inspiration and crafting his own singular sound whether through his own songs or the songs of others. On this new album, produced by Billy Horton, Crockett mines country music’s past and then processes it through his “Gulf & Western” sound – weaving old school blues, R&B, soul, cajun, western swing and other classic touchstones with country. And while the album features songs written by country legends like Willie Nelson, Tom T. Hall and George Jones, Crockett also shines a light on songs from regional acts like Louisiana’s Larry Brasso or a deep cut from Red Sovine. And even when he’s interpreting songs from country legends, Crockett steers toward lesser-known or underappreciated cuts, eschewing staples of the genre.
Crockett has announced UK and European shows for autumn with dates as follows:
October 28 – Workman’s – Dublin
October 30 – Oran Mor – Glasgow
October 31 – Deaf Institute – Manchester
November 1 – Jazz Café – London
November 3 – Yuca – Cologne
November 4 – Quasimodo – Berlin
November 5 – Take Root Festival – Groningen, NL
In the US, Crockett is currently on his (mostly sold out) coast-to-coast headlining “Jukebox Charley” tour, and he will return to Stagecoach Festival next Friday, April 29th. He’s been tapped by Willie Nelson to open a number of US amphitheater shows this summer, and he will also be joining various dates of Nelson’s roving Outlaw Music Festival as well as Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic in Austin, TX. Additionally, Crockett will perform at several other summer festivals including Palomino Festival, Bourbon & Beyond Festival, Peacemaker Music Festival and Moon River Music Festival.
Crockett released two albums in 2021 – Lil’ G.L. Presents: 10 For Slim – Charley Crockett Sings James Hand and Music City USA – and had across the board success. Crockett won “Emerging Act of the Year” at the 2021 Americana Honors & Awards and made his Austin City Limits TV debut a month later. He received billboards in Times Square from Spotify and CMT, performed at several top tier festivals including Austin City Limits and Merlefest, and was featured in an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Music City USA stayed at #1 on the Americana radio charts for six straight weeks and the album debuted on 14 different Billboard charts. Globally, Crockett’s music has been streamed over 155 million times, with 78 million streams coming in the past year.
