Dale Watson, keeper of the true country music flame, returns with Call Me Insane, a new studio album recorded in Austin with veteran producer Lloyd Maines (Robert Earl Keen, Jerry Jeff Walker, etc.) The album will be released on June 9 in North America via Red House/Ameripolitan Records on CD, digital, and vinyl. The Austinbased honky-tonker carries on in the tradition of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson with his "Ameripolitan" brand of American roots music.

Album highlights include "Jonesin' For Jones," a love song to the music of the legendary George Jones, "A Day At A Time," about "getting by by barely getting by;" "Call Me Insane," the album's moody title track; "Bug Ya For Love," a fun warning to all the single ladies, and "Mamas Don't Let Your Cowboys Grow Up To Be Babies." (Yes, it is an answer song to the Waylon Jennings/Willie Nelson hit.) "Crocodile Tears" is a tear-in-your-beer country song that sounds like an instant classic and "Burden Of The
Cross" reveals Watson's serious side.

Call Me Insane was recorded in Austin by Watson and his ace touring band, "His Lone Stars": Don Pawlak (pedal steel), Mike Bernal (drums & percussion), and Chris Crepps (upright bass & background vocals). Dale plays electric guitar throughout and Lloyd Maines added acoustic guitar. They were joined in the studio by Danny Levin on piano and the Honky Tonk Horns: Jon Blondell (trombone), Joey Colarusso (saxophone), and Ricky White (trumpet).
