Song of the Day – Sep 18/07

I discovered the music of Hickry Hawkins meandering around the vastness that has become MySpace. I was instantly hooked. He’s definitely for those who have edgier, hard drivin’ tastes…. The Hell I Am mp3 has much better quality listening files…

A lot of today’s country singers like to talk about a down-home upbringing, rock ‘n’ roll roots, a punk influence and how they bring it all together in some kind of hillbilly hybrid that rocks as much as it twangs. Hick’ry Hawkins doesn’t talk about it.

  1. Damn, Hickry Hawkins is a breath of fresh air – and a little “dangerous” sounding. It’s that sort of rockin’, twangin’ rebellion that puts him up there with Steve Earle and Dwight Yoakam. Hope to hear more.
