Hayes Carll On Mountain Stage

Steeped in the same Texas tradition that spawned Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark and Ray Wylie Hubbard (a friend and co-writer), songwriter Hayes Carll infuses his songs and his stage banter with clever humor.

Showcasing songs from his latest CD, Trouble in Mind, Carll performs live for a rapt house in Charleston, W.Va.'s Clay Center, stripping down his honky-tonk and Texas country songs to the guitar and voice from which they originated.

This segment originally ran on Jul. 30, 2008.
