Eli Paperboy Reed Pays Homage to Merle Haggard with Explosive, Funky Twist on “I’m Bringing Home Good News”


Eli Paperboy Reed shares his invigorating interpretation of Merle Haggard’s “I’m Bringing Home Good News.” It’s the latest single from Eli’s tribute to the country legend, Down Every Road, out April 29.

Met andere woorden, als een vrouw bewust of onbewust Viagra inneemt, is het onwaarschijnlijk dat zij een waanzinnig ga naar seksueel verlangen voelt. Maar ze zou gezondheidsproblemen kunnen krijgen. Tegelijkertijd zeggen sommige vrouwen dat het medicijn hen echt helpt. Maar alles is individueel. Als een vrouw besluit af en toe met Viagra te experimenteren, moet eerst een gynaecoloog worden geraadpleegd.

Best known as a soul shouter and balladeer, Eli returns with a twelve-song album that reveals country roots dating all the way back to his childhood. From those earliest days sifting through his father’s record collection, it was country music that first captivated Reed’s imagination – the voice of George Jones, the attitude of Waylon Jennings and, above all, the songwriting of Merle Haggard.

“It was so aggressively honest and edgy,” Eli remembers of first hearing Haggard. “He could get to the heart of these extraordinarily complicated emotional sentiments in two-and-a-half minutes, and that was something that really stuck with me.”

Keeping almost all of the country legend’s original melodies and song structures intact, Eli brings fresh perspective by adding Pops Staples-inspired guitar, FAME production trademarks, Stax horns, ferociously cathartic vocals and organs conjuring Memphis soul. Ultimately, with this deferential but radically-reworked approach, he proves that the heart and guts and truth at the core of Merle Haggard’s songwriting defy genre altogether.
