Let's just get it out of the way right up front: In the five years between his last and most successful album yet. Good Times. and his new Dualtone Records release. Beautiful Day. Charlie Robison got divorced from his wife Emily (of The Dixie Chicks). So it's only natural to assume that this is his "divorce album." which is not altogether untrue. But as with all devoted songwriters. Robison writes from a perspective that draws from and speaks to larger matters and issues within human experience and life in these times.

THE BASICS: Im a 21 year old singer/songwriter with an uncontrollable passion for music. I could listen to it, sing it, watch it, or write it all day long! Although Ive been a singer since I was 12 years old, I just recently stumbled into the live red dirt music scene. After recording a demo CD in 2008, I teamed up with the wonderful Gerrie McDowell (Gerrieco Texas Promotions) to release my first single Crazy to radio. Fresh onto the scene I kept my expectations lowI was absolutely shocked as I watched it rise to #20 on the Texas Music Chart! At that time I started playing acoustic shows around Texas, embarking on a quest for world domination (kidding).
