If the whiskey's strong and the band plays on, I can do no wrong

There's a new album by Barton Carroll, the sometime Eric Bachman sideman who is also, seriously, one of the best alt.county songwriters you never heard of. The album is called Avery County, I'm Bound to You, and it's more down-home than my previous favorite The Lost One, not as funny and more blatantly tethered to real life. But it's really, really good, and you should check it out.

This is all I can find from the upcoming album.

"Superman" is pretty great, too.

Tour dates are of really limited use, unless you live in one of the Carolinas (in which case, good times!).
