January 9 marks the date of Hayes Carll's birthday. KDHX celebrates Carll's special day with a collection of photos, videos and audio recordings from his many visits to St. Louis.
The Magnolia Avenue Studios hosted hundreds of musicians, and over 70 different bands from all genres for 2013's Live at KDHX recording sessions.
Each month, this site features numerous photography pieces based on the work of the intrepid members of KDHX's pool of volunteer photographers.
If you're not sure that country music is cool, then Hayes Carll has a sound thay may convince you.
Give a man a guitar and he will play you a song. Give Hayes Carll a guitar and he will bare his soul in a raw and honest way that few musicians can match.
Coming in at 23 tracks strong, "Live at KDHX, Volume X" spans the worlds of indie rock, pop, folk, bluegrass, Americana, honky tonk, blues and Latin music. It's as diverse and independent as the station that powers it.
Late in his set, Hayes Carll gave his appreciation to the audience as he said, "Thanks for coming out on a Sunday night especially after the official Super Bowl of drinking yesterday."
To paraphrase The Pixies: "HAYES! Been tryin' to meet you!" And that's what we gave you the chance to do -- meet Hayes Carll and attend his soundcheck, followed by his show at the Sheldon this Sunday, March 18 -- by writing a Hayes Carll haiku. A Hay-ku, if you will.
