Charley Crockett Releases New Single “I Need Your Love,” Sets Date For New Album

Bobby Cochran

Charley Crockett, the old soul who’s bringing back some of the Gulf into the country music world.

The man has been setting the independent country scene on fire for the past couple of years, and now, he’s announced his 10th full-length album release, Music City USA, slated for September 17th.

Recorded at Soil of the South Productions in Valdosta, Georgia, and produced by Mark Neill, Crockett weighed in on the sound that this album brings to the table, while also discussing his brand new single that dropped today, “I Need Your Love:”

“I like to think of my sound as ‘Gulf & Western,’ and this number here is all gulf coast music.

Something you’d hear out of southeast Texas recording studios or Southern Louisiana. I’d been foolin’ around with this song for a while, and when we went to record it, we decided at the last minute to double the length of the chorus. I felt right then that we had something.”

I’d wanted to bring the horns back for a couple tunes on this album. Soul and Country R&B from the deep south is a whole lot of who I am. I hope it shows though on ‘I Need Your Love.'”

Give the song a listen:

Crockett also announced that he’s made some additions with the tour schedule in New York City, Nashville, and Philadelphia, and will be hitting the road with up-and-comer Orville Peck.
