Mr. Hayes Carll from The Woodlands is one of our greatest treasures, and his country magic is making him a name all over America. We sat down with Carll to see what we could learn in 30 seconds.

Hayes Carll: I really don't know how to answer that question.
RO: What is the best lyric in the world?
HC: "From the rocking of the cradle to the rollin' of the hearse/ The going up was worth the coming down."
-- Kris Kristofferson, "The Pilgrim, Chapter 33"
RO: Someone throws a beer bottle at you onstage. What do you do?
RO: Without worrying about space, time, or the laws of physics, what would be the ultimate gig to play?
HC: I'd start my gig at the Alamo on the night before it fell. Sing a few songs, blow some minds. Then I'd move on over to San Francisco to jump in on The Last Waltz and see what rock-star cocaine in 1978 was all about.
