Let me tell you about independent country music's wild card...
The first time I saw Charley Crockett on stage, I had no idea he was going to be there. The opening band was setting up and I recognized the guy who had been in front of me in line at the convenience store earlier, he was the axe man. Next thing I know this wild man walks out on the stage in a 70's nudie suit, grabs the mic, and breaks into an unexpectedly bluesy song while his band plays brass flavored funk. It didn't take more than a couple minutes before everyone in the club was dancing along to this unique blend of country, rock, and Cajun flavored blues. Before Charley and the boys left the stage, I knew I had a new favorite.
