New CD – The Last Local

Last-local-article_thumbFalling squarely into the Americana category, and mostly acoustic, “The Last Local” features a new selection of my original songs and the instrumental work of the inimitable Tim Crouch, from nearby Strawberry, Arkansas, who played fiddle and did the charts for Alan Jackson’s recent bluegrass album. Some of the songs were written decades ago, and some are only months old. Casey Penn contributed harmonies, and Brad Apple recorded and mixed the final stages. Three are co-writes, one each with Robert Rivers, Doug Deforest, and Connie Mims. They are songs of celebration, storytelling, recollection, and reflection.

  1. Charley,
    I listened to 1932 again. It threw me back to 1966 on my father’s farm and a crop failure. I love how you have given a voice to something that sat in the back of my mind for years. It is a memory that is not sad. It is just the way the world worked. All the best on your website launch.

    Your friend,
    John

  2. I enjoyed the show last Friday night, you and Harmony together in Little Rock, bringing Arkansas history alive in words and music. Y’all are a treasure.

    And I’m enjoying this new CD “The Last Local”. Keep up the great work.
