Bill Hearne Releases new single (with guest Jerry Jeff Walker)!

Bill Hearne and Jerry Jeff Walker have known each other since the late 1960’s, when they were both knocking around the emerging music scene in Austin, Texas, playing in the honky-tonks and gathering both the fans and the experiences that would carry them through their long careers. Back in 2015, Bill was working on an album project, and knew that he wanted to involve as many of his long-time friends and collaborators as he could, and he reached out to Jerry Jeff and asked him if he’d sing on a song. Walker, with his usual trademark generosity, sang on two. One (Dust on My Boots) was included on that 2015 Howlin’ Dog  Records release (All That’s Real), and the other has been sitting “in the can” waiting to see the light of day.

Driftin’ Way of Life will be included on Bill’s upcoming 2021 Howlin’ Dog Records album release “A Very Short Time”, but we also wanted to send it out on its own, as Bill does just a killer version of the tune. Plus we know folks will be missing Jerry Jeff, and the vocal interplay on their duet is stellar. JJW takes a verse and scats along with Bill afterward, and it just totally embodies that rambling spirit of the song.

We here at Howlin’ Dog hope you enjoy this great collaboration as much as we have, and we’re excited to send it out to you!
