With that being said, the man is ready to get back on the train, as he’s gearing up to drop a brand new album on April 22nd, titled Lil’ G.L. Presents: Jukebox Charley.
The album, produced by Billy Horton, is the fourth edition of his Lil’ G.L. tribute series and will feature songs written by Willie Nelson, Tom T. Hall and George Jones, as well as Larry Brasso and Red Sovine.
He weighed in on the new project:
“I’ve done a few Lil’ G.L. records now. This Jukebox Charley LP makes four. I wanted to really stretch out on this one and take some chances. Do something different.
We took some risks and laid down a lot of lesser known, more adventurous classics. Hope folks pick up what I’m puttin’ down.”
On top of the album release, he also dropped the lead single for the album today, titled “I Feel For You,” a cover from Jerry Reed’s 1966 debut album, The Unbelievable Guitar & Voice of Jerry Reed.
Crockett discussed how he came about this song:
“Mark Neill turned me on to this one. It was a guiding light for both ‘Welcome to Hard Times’ and ‘Music City USA.’
It really spoke to me, hit me as a timeless song. Once we started the sessions for Jukebox Charley, it became clear this would be a single.”
