Robbie Fulks Picks And Grins And Plays Some Of The Best Alt-Country Songs We Heard Last Year

January 21, 2014 - Robbie Fulks can be a devastatingly funny songwriter and then kill with sentiment in the next song. He’s made a career of it and approached the music biz from nearly every angle. He had a cup of coffee with Geffen Records in the 90’s right before they dropped him. His feeling about the Nashville country music biz was made known in his classic song “F*** This Town.” Robbie seems a lot happier today. He put out a wonderful new album last year called Gone Away Backwards. We’ll talk songwriting, flat picking and even those tougher moments in his career in our session today.
