Lonesome, On'ry & Mean
I wanted to add a couple of cover songs to my album. I love classic country music and could have a blast re-recording it forever. So, to have to narrow it down to 2 songs for this album was a chore. "Lonesome, On'ry and Mean," (made famous by Waylon Jennings and could arguably be described as starting the Outlaw Movement) was written by Steve Young, another Newnan, Georgia, born songwriter. He is also more well known for his Eagles hit, "Seven Bridges Road." This is the first cover song I ever recorded and probably one of my favorite songs of all time. The last verse in this cut was added by me because the band got carried away and played an extra 2 whole minutes on the recording! I don't know if it was the song or maybe because it was the last song in our recording session and we might've had a couple of bourbons before we recorded it. 🙂 Either way, I didn't want to edit out their incredible playing, so I just wrote another verse to the song. My lyric was a shot at the big record business and the way they value money over art.
I loved being able to chat with Steve about this recording. He was very thankful that someone would record the song and after getting his blessing, I released it on my album "Honkytonkitis." I hope you'll enjoy it.
