Charley Crockett's Second Album of 2022 on 180g Vinyl LP!

Crockett wrote or co-wrote all 14 songs on The Man from Waco, and in many ways the album is the purest distillation of his artistry to date. What started as a demo session with producer Bruce Robison at Robison's studio The Bunker outside Austin, TX turned into the first album Crockett has ever made with his band The Blue Drifters backing him from start to finish. Mostly first takes with only a handful of overdubs, The Man from Waco finds Crockett refining his singular "Gulf & Western" sound which continues to captivate an ever-growing legion of fans.

"I just wanted an honest partnership: do it at your place, live to tape, everybody in the room," Crockett says of the recording experience, and Robison was happy to accommodate. "The magic is in the performances on that tape. That's what Bruce wanted to do, that's what I wanted to do. When we were done, I said, 'These are masters, not demos!'"

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, released in Sept 2021, 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 190 million times, with 93 million streams coming in the past year.

Lil' G.L. Presents Jukebox Charley, released in April 2022, was celebrated by press outlets such as Holler, Billboard, The Tennessean, Saving Country Music, Rolling Stone and more. Charley's success has caught the attention of CBS' Anthony Mason, who produced a CBS Mornings segment that was televised April '22.

Relying on the group's dexterous, energetic live energy frees Crockett to wander down many scenic byroads, lingering in areas that feel strangely familiar. No specific sound or style on The Man from Waco is new to Crockett, yet the way he's flowing from cowboy ballads to Western swing to Southern soul gives the album a lucid, fresh feeling. The range of styles and vast openness of the arrangements suggest a Cinemascope Western that is intentional, too....Taken one by one, the tracks are compelling short stories, but when assembled as an album, they gain a collective strength that carries a mighty wallop.
-Stephen Thomas Erlewine,, 4.5/5 stars (The AllMusic 2022 Year in Review - Best of 2022)
