Honoring country music great Lefty Frizzell
I Love You Mostly – Cliff Hale
Cliff Hale and I (Hugh Moore) have a deep respect for the late, great Lefty Frizzell, an enormously influential country artist whose impact on country music seems terrifically underemphasized today. George Jones, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, George Strait, John Anderson, Randy Travis – they all thought of Lefty as a primary influence. On this recording we tried to recreate the Lefty sound using the basic instrumentation Lefty used. We did a whole project out of passion, but then decided to not release it because we realized, “who would buy it?” Aren’t we smart?
