Live Tuesday the 14th at 3pm: HAYES CARLL

The last time Hayes Carll visited us, he brought his band for a killer session of tunes from his KMAG YOYO release  (a Top 20 album pick among WNCW listeners, and the #1 song for the Americana Music Association.)  This time he's no doubt got some great new songs to unveil for us and you.  Tune in to this  Texas bard who fits right in alongside John Prine, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Todd Snider, ...and Jack Kerouac.  He rolls into the area just in time for a visit and an Asheville show.
