about

I wrote this song after reading two books by Joe Nick Patoski: Caught in the Crossfire (about Stevie Ray Vaughan) and An Epic Life (about Willie Nelson). This song is a tribute to those songwriters (and to guys like Ray Wylie Hubbard, Delbert McClinton, Billy Joe Shaver, the Vaughan Brothers, the Sexton Brothers) who have spent those late nights and early mornings putting their heart on the line to play the songs.

Track listing:
1. Mountain Home
2. Desdemona
3. Medicine Man
4. Small Town
5. Danger and Good Times
6. Fall in Love Every Night
7. Jacksboro Highway
8. Old Sam
9. Prince of Peace
10. One Day Closer to Rain

Mountain Home, the sixth studio record from Austin, Texas-based songwriter Owen Temple, is a collection of 10 songs about eccentric characters living extraordinary lives in small towns and on the fringes of big cities.

The characters are all on edge- on the verge of freedom, catastrophe, and hope- and the songs tell of strange happenings in rural landscapes both past and present.

Recorded with producer Gabe Rhodes, the album has the feel of a live performance with stellar contributions from Charlie Sexton on bass and baritone guitar, Bukka Allen on keyboards, Tommy Spurlock on pedal steel, and drummer Rick Richards.

The project includes songs written by Temple and co-writes with Adam Carroll, Scott Nolan, and Gordy Quist (of the Band of Heathens). Temple’s love of folk, blues, and bluegrass shines through in the arrangements and the playing of his compadres.

“I love traditional music- old songs that cross time and space to tell you what the people cared about,” Temple says. “With my songs I'm trying to get down some of the stories of this place.”

lyrics

Fall in Love Every Night
(Owen Temple)

Boots and rhinestones
Canadian tuxedoes
Honky tonk zeros
Neon lights

Rocky Mountain beer signs
Parking lot Thunderbird wine
Ten 'til showtime
Dim the lights
Fall in love every night

Metal building stage sound
North Texas showdown
Feeling high and lowdown
Staying up all night

That kid's gonna be a star
But he can't find his car
He used his guitar
In a back room fight
He falls in love every night

Bouncing hot checks
Surviving car wrecks
Where you gonna sleep next
Hold on tight
Fall in love every night

Drinks his own snake oil
Mixed with Crown Royal
Crank in tin foil
Blacks and whites

Played cards with Freddie King
Lost everything
That he got to play and sing
But that's all right
He falls in love every night

The clothes you slept in
You play the gig in
Don't bother to tuck it in man
It looks all right
You fall in love every night
You fall in love every night
Fall in love every night
