Willie Watson

Willie Watson


In association with Hee Haw Sessions []

The former Old Crow Medicine Show singer breathes new life into songs made famous by Leadbelly, Reverend Gary Davis, Furry Lewis and Bascom Lamar Lunsford. With a quick vibrato and rich range, he’s a balladeer on _Gallows Pole_ and a bluesman on _When My Baby Left Me_. _Dry Bones_ finds him crooning and hollering over a bouncing banjo while _Take This Hammer_ closes on a repentant gospel note, with Watson singing out to the heavens.
