Jesse Dayton it’s fair to say is a Texan guitar legend who’s previously recorded with Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings and he’s just about to release his first UK album in 10 years which we recently described as “a superb album which really does have something for everyone both lyrically and sonically”. Dayton played the lead parts alongside his personal hero Glen Campbell, right after Campbell was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and he’s just finished performing aboard the “The Outlaw Country Cruise” with Lucinda Williams, The Mavericks and Steve Earle. If that isn’t all enough to convince you then catch him on his UK tour later this month – dates and a slightly wobbly video of him playing are below.
