PreFreak: Hayes Carll @ The Dakota 2-14-17 mpls

Rootsy Texas singer songwriter Hayes Carll has been known to have positively profound effects on his captive audience. I will share this true story.  Hayes was playing a 2 hour show in Austin & prior to that had been hanging with a musician friend who happened to tell some really bad Arkansas jokes. So Hayes reluctantly told these terrible jokes to help fill the time, a first in 9 years he confessed. At the end of his show, Carll noticed everybody had fancy drinks & there was a huge tip in his tip jar. Turns out, a rich guy from Arkansas who owns a giant chicken company loved the set & bought 2 rounds of drinks for the entire place on top the tip. Hayes later met the benefactor to thank him. And he later said “It wasn’t a total waste” as he wrote an oddly prolific song called “Chickens”. (see below) Hayes also commented that “this stuff never happens to me”. I must add, well, now is does Hayes & very deservedly so.
