This is how you do a Western twist on a song.

Charley Crockett has slowly released singles from his ‘Billy Horton Sessions,’ a reimaged take on his album, A Man From Waco.

The second single Crockett released from this session was “I’m Just A Clown,” he touched on his creative process when discussing the inspiration behind the ‘Billy Horton Session.’

“I’ve always been a folk songwriter, and if your tune really holds up, you oughta be able to present it with any kind of band or arrangement and have the story show through.”

In all the singles he has released thus far, he has shown us that his tunes stand up to his statement.

His newest “July Jackson” release might be my favorite of the singles released so far from this session. The tune makes the listener feel like they stepped back in time to an old Western, and the visuals for this music video do the same.

The upbeat murder ballot tells the story of July Jackson and how she was not remorseful for taking her husband’s life.

“Why just this mornin’
They brought July Jackson down
Where they started with their questions
In front of this entire town
Where I was standing
I saw pretty July’s face
And she said she wasn’t sorry
That she put him in his place…”

The ‘Billy Horton Session’ of this tune perfectly reimagines the melody of this originally acoustic tune.

A user left on the Instagram post teasing “July Jackson- Billy Horton Sessions”:

“Respectfully, I’m not gonna know how to act if there’s a sessions version of Trinity River.”

I have never related to a comment so much, and I am pumped to see the rest of A Man From Waco in this light come May 26th.
