Charley Crockett Releases 4th Album ‘Lonesome As A Shadow’
Out today, Friday, April 20, Lonesome As A Shadow is Crockett’s fourth full-length album and his first release consisting entirely of original songs.
The album’s first single, “I Wanna Cry,” premiered at Rolling Stone who describes it as, “…a more soulful side of the traditional roots-based sound that Crockett first honed as a street performer in New Orleans.”
Crockett will embark on an extensive headline tour this year including shows at Dallas’ Majestic Theater, New Braunfels’ Gruene Hall, Austin’s Stubbs, Nashville’s Mercy Lounge, New York’s Mercury Lounge and Los Angeles’ The Mint among many others. In addition to Crockett’s headline dates, he will also perform a series of shows supporting Turnpike Troubadours, Shovels and Rope and Old 97’s.
Inspired by the life of his ancestor Davy Crockett, the Texas native has traveled the world, spending time in Paris, Spain, Morocco and Northern Africa as well as singing on the streets across the U.S. from New Orleans’ French Quarter to New York City.
