Tuesday Tunes - Kelly Willis "What I Deserve"

I discovered Kelly Willis back in college probably around 1993. I immediately was hooked on her sound. I bought her back albums and began to go see her live whenever she came in town. I've probably seen her live about 10 times. I could go on and on with stories about run ins with her at shows and stupid things I've said to her.....but I won't. My wife can attest to that. She did ask me for the time once at Gruene Hall amidst hundreds of fans......we had a moment. Seriously though, Kelly Willis has the best voice in music in my opinion....raspy, twangy, & soulful. I don't listen to many female singers, but Kelly Willis is my all time favorite and probably always will be. She is married to another one of my favorite singer/songwriters - Bruce Robison. This album, What I Deserve is a good one! You won't hear Kelly on the radio....she doesn't fit the crappy Nashville mold....thank goodness. Check her out, you will not be disappointed.
