Charley Crockett has announced his next album The Man From Waco, coming September 9th. Crockett wrote or co-wrote all 14 songs on the album, which was produced by Bruce Robison at Robison’s studio The Bunker outside Austin, TX.

Listen to the lead single “I’m Just A Clown” HERE.

It is Crockett’s first project with the backing of his band, The Blue Drifters, from start to finish.

“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.’”

On The Man From Waco, Crockett trusts his instincts, calls his own shots and gives himself the space to strive for greatness on his own terms.

“Everybody was telling me: ‘go right, go right, go right,’” says Crockett. “I went left. I had to hold on to what has gotten me this far.”

Crockett is currently out on the road across the U.S., mixing headlining shows with a slot on Willie Nelson’s roving Outlaw Music Festival and other festival appearances. He will head to Europe and the UK for a headlining tour at the end of October with dates as follows:

October 28 – Workman’s – Dublin

October 30 – Oran Mor – Glasgow

October 31 – Deaf Institute – Manchester

November 1 – Jazz Café – London

November 3 – Yuca – Cologne

November 4 – Quasimodo – Berlin

November 5 – Take Root Festival – Groningen, NL
