Hayes Carll Details New Album What It Is

See Where He’s Going in 2019

Americana favorite Hayes Carll will release his next album, What It Is, on Feb. 15. Fiancée Allison Moorer co-produced the 12-song collection with KMAG YOYO and Trouble In Mind’s Brad Jones.

Following 2016’s personal and cathartic Lovers and Leavers, What It Is addresses topics he’s known for including the current political climate and relationships through his signature brand of Texas storytelling. As always, his wry wit is on full display throughout the music.

Among the tracks is Carll’s original “Jesus and Elvis,” a song Kenny Chesney recorded for Cosmic Hallelujah.

A full 2019 tour kicks off in Houston, Texas on Feb. 15. Ticket information can be found via Carll’s website. B
