Virgil Shaw – “Sharon”
This one’s been simmering since last week, but too good to let slip by. Virgil Shaw joins the Rocks in Your Head roster for an LP on the way in October. The former Dieselhed / Brent’s T.V. member has leaned into the road dust of country in the past few years and “Sharon” proves to be an exemplary view into his confessional croon. With the patched denim delivery of Kris Kristofferson and a dirt path pace that rambles with the soul of the ‘70s in tow, the song ambles easy in the sun, but tows a heavy heart behind it. Not falling too far from the countryfied visions of labeled Sonny Smith’s last outing, this one falls in nicely with the label’s eclectic roster. The record hits shelves October 15th. Check out the video for “Sharon” above.
