On The Sun Sessions, not only does Dale Watson evoke an era, but he revives it to the point that it seems that it never faded. Embodying the early recordings of Johnny Cash, Elvis, Carl Perkins brewed with his signature Texas juke joint cool, Dale Watson is what country is, was and should always be. Recorded at the fabled Sun Studios in Memphis, TN, The Sun Sessions is an album that deserves the label of "instant classic." Backed by The Texas Two, these 14 original tracks turn love, heartache and the unsung heros of our everyday lives into legend.
The Sun Sessions is packed from start to finish with Watson's mix of honky tonk, rockabilly and Americana, weaving each song into its own compelling story showcasing his mastery of songwriting that could stand side-by-side with the greats of country. This is what authentic country music sounds like, speaking to all of us with a wit and humor that's as strong as a whiskey on the rocks and easy as a two-stepping rhythm. Listening to The Sun Sessions, it's impossible NOT to have a good time and Dale Watson makes sure of that. So do yourself a favor, strap your boots on, snap your shirt up and get ready to dance with The Sun Sessions!
