Hayes Carll closed out his 25 club shows in 30 days at the world-famous Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, CA on April 30th. Carll was scheduled to wrap up his tour with a festival show the following day at Stagecoach Festival in Indio, CA.   On a roll, Carll really packed a punch and the crowd loved it.

Hayes is on tour to promote his latest album, You Get It All. The set included the title track as well as “Nice Things,” “She’ll Come Back To Me,” “Different Boats” and others from the album.

The night aso saw Hayes perform the touching song inspired by his grandfather and others who suffer from dementia, “Help Me Remember.”

Other songs that night included “Noneya”, one of my favorites, “She Left Me For Jesus” and a tribute to his friend and mentor, Ray Wylie Hubbard, “Mississippi Flush.”

A teary-eyed Carll also performed a Judds song in memory of Naomi Judd who died earlier that day.

Opening for Hayes was Portland, Oregon’s Anna Tivel. Tivel is an amazing songwriter and talented musician and it showed. The bar/club scene was a bit loud, unfortunately. But I would love to see her in a more quiet, intimate venue.
