Charley Crockett’s new song, “Lil’ Girl’s Name” recently premiered at No Depression, who calls it an, “…infectious rockabilly scorcher…” and goes on to declare, “‘Lil’ Girl’s Name’ gets you moving; it’s so much fun to dance to this song that you’re disappointed when the music fades out.” Listen/share HERE.

“Lil’ Girl’s Name” is the second track unveiled from Crockett’s anticipated new full-length album, Lonesome As A Shadow, which will be released April 20 and is now available for pre-order.

Already receiving critical acclaim, the album’s first single, “I Wanna Cry,” recently 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.” Listen/share HERE.

In celebration of the release, 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 Philadelphia’s Boot & Saddle among many others. In addition to Crockett’s headline dates, he will also perform a series of shows supporting JD McPhearson, Turnpike Troubadours, Shovels and Rope and Old 97’s. Tickets for the newly announced shows go on-sale Monday, March 5 at 10:00am local time. See below for complete details.

Produced by Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price, Zac Brown) and recorded at Sam Phillip’s Recording in Memphis, TN, Lonesome As A Shadow is Crockett’s fourth full-length album and his first release consisting entirely of original songs. In addition to Crockett on vocals and guitar, the album features his longtime touring band, “The Blue Drifters.”

The release of Lonesome As A Shadow culminates a series of breakthrough years for Crockett following the release of 2015’s A Stolen Jewel and 2016’s In The Night which received widespread critical acclaim and earned him a Dallas Observer Music Award for “Best Blues Act.” Following the releases, Rolling Stone included Crockett as one of their “10 Artists You Should Know” while Wide Open Country described him as, “A honky tonk hero for the modern era.” Most recently, in 2017, Crockett released a collection of his favorite honky tonk songs, entitled Charley Crockett presents Lil G.L.’s Honky Tonk Jubilee. The album features songs originally performed by Hank Williams, Ernest Tubb, Loretta Lynn, Tanya Tucker, Roy Acuff, Webb Pierce and other great heroes of honky tonk.

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.
