Chicago roots icon Robbie Fulks and Memphis rock-n-roll queen Linda Gail Lewis (Jerry Lee's little sister!) have released a new song from their upcoming collaborative album Wild! Wild! Wild! "I Just Lived a Country Song" is a perfect slice of honky tonk balladry, sung by two absolute greats.
In 1993, a songwriter banging around the Chicago club scene with a twangy voice and dangerous sense of humor caught our attention. We started making records with him, and as part of the first-generation bloodshot roster, Robbie Fulks helped us define “Alternative Country.” In 2013, after two decades of playing music everywhere from the taverns of southern Illinois to the honky-tonks of northern Norway, from Austin City Limits’ soundstage to the historic Grand Ole Opry, he reunited with us for the highly acclaimed Gone Away Backward.
