Cale Tyson Album Release w/ Woody Pines, The Lonely H
There’s a pretty severe case of macho going around among the guys of mainstream country, and one of the chief symptoms is the list song that reels off every sturdy, American-made item required for dirt-road tailgating, from the truck bed to the iced-down brew. You’re far more likely to find honky-tonk sensitivity over on the indie side of country, from the guys who worship at the altar of tortured soul twang. Fort Worth transplant Cale Tyson is staking out a spot for himself right in the middle of that territory with his new steel-and-shuffles-stocked EP High on Lonesome, which features none other than Kenny Vaughan. Tyson’s songwriting has its stock barroom and bedroom scenes, too — tradition is one of country’s central ingredients, after all — but you can tell that he hears Hank Sr.’s lonesome yodeling and Gram Parsons’ rock-to-country reaching through modern ears. And boy, is his pleading, heart-on-sleeve emotionalism refreshing right about now.
