Half a Heart
This ain't no bull! Dexter Crockett did it again. His latest CD is loaded with Crockett's unique brand of country faith and soul. Deeply rooted in rich storytelling traditions, his songs echo the well-traveled roads of our heart. Like Hank Williams' music, Crockett's songs reverberate with the feel of classic American tales, updated to the post-modern vibrations of Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark. Longing, heartbreak and forlorn blues are mixed with Crockett's sense of adventure and wondering about the mysteries of love, fate and injustice. Listen to a song, and you will find yourself instantly transported into a world of joy and broken hearts, where love burns like bare feet on a summer road. You'll hear him paint musical scenes where faith is reborn, rebel hillbillies chase lady luck into the wind and sunburned cowboys ride along lonely trails. Let Dexter Crockett bring you back to all the places you hold dear, whether you cheer along to a rousing patriotic tune or tap your feet as a wicked sheriff rides along. Enjoy 'Half A Heart', this brilliant follow up to his groundbreaking debut CD, 'Whiskey and Water'. Crockett's rich collection of lively original songs is highlighted by performances from a group of virtuoso sidemen that make this compilation a joyful and deeply textured experience. Who could have guessed that Crockett would become enamored with the life of cowboys when his Mama bought him a hat and boots along with a plastic gun and holster for his fifth birthday. Sneaking rides on horses every chance he could, he cultivated his inner cowhand ever since that day. Always known for his lively imagination and sense of adventure, it's no wonder that he holds on to his roots in the wellspring of his compositions. Grab your saddle horn, you're in for a wild ride!
