Cale Tyson is a singer, songwriter and guitar player from Nashville, Tennessee. Born in a small town in Texas, he was raised in Fort Worth, the home of Townes Van Zandt and the place where he first heard the classic country sounds that have inspired and enriched his gentle, melancholy, and undeniably whiskey-soaked sound.
With a nostalgic heart and an ear for melodies from long ago, Tyson’s latest EP, High On Lonesome is a beautiful collection of songs that continue the legacy of some of the legendary songwriters whose music he first heard as a child - Gram Parsons, Guy Clark and Willie Nelson, to name but a few.
Recorded in Nashville, High On Lonesome features some of the town’s finest players including guitarist Kenny Vaughn (Marty Stuart), keyboard player Tyson Rogers (Don Williams), John McTigue on drums and Mike Rinne (Caitlin Rose and Andrew Combs) on bass.
The end result is at once a loving tribute to the great country songwriters that have come before him and also a persuasive plea to those who might think that country music’s best days have been and gone. As long as Cale Tyson has a say in it, the best days might yet be still to come.
