Want to get to know and to experience a great artist, like former Old Crow Medicine Show member Willie Watson? Well, he is touring in 2015.
He released Folk Singer, Vol. 1 this year. The album was produced by the legendary David Rawlings, longtime friend and producer of Watson's previous band, Old Crow Medicine Show.
"There's a lot of weight in the way Willie performs," says Rawlings. "He's had some tragedy in his life, which has informed his art. There's an emotional edge to what he does because of who he is as a human being. Willie is the only one of his generation who can make me forget these songs were ever sung before."
We love when real life informs art, even when it's painful. That's what makes it beautiful, relatable and, well, real.
