TruCountry: Jake Penrod performs "Can't You Hear My Heart Breakin' ".Live on TruCountry Show (vie, 20 abr 2018)
Jake Penrod performs "Can't You Hear My Heart Breakin' ".Live on TruCountry Show Jake Penrod is the name being heard more and more in the Texas music scene. A relative newcomer, the singer has quickly earned a reputation as a master of Honky-Tonk music, who not only sings and writes, but can also play just about any instrument you hand him. In 2013, he released an album of original material, titled "Closer To Me". The album showcases Jake Penrod's songwriting ability as well as musicianship across an array of different styles of Honky Tonk music. He wrote each song on the album and played every instrument in authentic Honky Tonk fashion, proving he knows his stuff when it comes to traditional Country Music, and earning the title of King of Texas Twang.  Jake is a Country Music traditionalist who believes moving forward doesn't necessarily mean leaving the past behind. "There were a lot of great ones before me," he says. "There's still a lot you can do with what they started. These new guys; they're creating something new and different, and that's great, but we can't forget where we came from. If Country Music is going to carry on, you have to keep the roots alive." Jake identifies with fellow texas Honky Tonker, Dale Watson and has embraced the Ameripolitan genre as his own. Jake was nominated in 2014 for Honky Tonk Male Artist of the Year for the second annual Ameripolitan Music Awards. (ameripolitan.com) At an imperially slim 6-feet-two-inches, decked out in a suit and tie, and crowned with his signature Stetson, Jake Penrod even looks like a flashback to Country Music's heyday. He gives credit to fellow Texan Ernest Tubb for inspiring his style. "He always looked like a million bucks. His band, too."  Jake Penrod and his Million-Dollar Cowboys can be seen regularly in the dancehalls and honky tonks throughout the Texas Hill Country. His hardcore Honky Tonk band and powerful, Ray-Price-like tenor vocals pierce through the loudest of barrooms and keep dancers on their feet all night. "There's not a lot of downtime in our shows," he says. "These people show up to dance." Jake is currently working on recording a series of singles to be released on Texas radio stations throughout the year. Facebook WEBSITE

Willie Nelson - Angel Flying Too Close To The Ground Lyrics   If you had not have fallen Then I would not have found you Angel flying too close to the ground And I patched up your broken wing and hung around a while Trying to keep your spirits up and your fever down I knew someday that you would fly away For love's the greatest healer to be found So leave me if you need to, I will still remember Angel flying too close to the ground Fly on, fly on past, the speed of sound I'd rather see you up than see you down So leave me if you need to, I will still remember Angel flying too close to the ground. So leave me if you need to, I will still remember Angel flying too close to the ground.
