“We’re in love with Dylan Earl! It’s as simple as that. He’s the perfect mix of 90s country glamour and anti-country sensibilities that gets us all hot and sweaty here at Holler. So imagine our excitement when his brand new album lands in our inbox! And we get to premiere the first song from it! We are living the country dream.
‘Buddy’ is everything we’ve come to expect from one of modern country’s most colourful characters. Pitched halfway between smooth Urban Cowboy country-pop and the irreverence of Bobby Bare singing Shel Silverstein, Earl manages to wrap his silky baritone around the mundanities of modern life and weave them into something profound and deeply relatable. Often as hilarious as they are heart-breaking, his songs feel like comforting foil blankets to protect us from the fall-out of the pre-apocalypse.
Taken from his third album, I Saw the Arkansas – which is being released on the independent ‘Y’allternative’ label Gar Hole Records on March 10th – ‘Buddy’ lets the listener ride shotgun out on the road with Earl, as he guides us through the many wacky stories, close encounters with the law, dizzying romances, and endless highways of his life.”
