Video # 58 of 1000 – Jack Wilson – We Gotta Give (all the love we’ve got) or Try Harder. Recorded live at the Trout House – House Concert on May 22, 2010 in HD (1080p on XA10).

“Jack Wilson has the kind of heartfelt, wizened voice that lots of country-folk men have: It’s a warm, pull-up-a-barstool-and-I’ll-tell-you-a-story-of-heartbreak-my-friend kind of a voice. Lots of musicians coast on that kind of voice, writing songs about how their true love has hair like shafts of wheat but not anymore because she is dead or some silly shit like that. But Wilson ventures out into the fringes of country to push at expectations in a tremendously satisfying way.”
