Tom T. Hall has been dubbed The Storyteller, The Poet of Nashville and the Mark Twain of Country Music. One thing is for sure – Tom T. Hall is one of the all-time great songwriters, with the multimillion-selling Harper Valley P.T.A. being his most well-known composition.
Ol' T's In Town was released in 1979 and produced three chart singles, You Show Me Your Heart (And I'’ll Show You Mine), The Old Side Of Town and Jesus On The Radio (Daddy On The Phone).
A Soldier Of Fortune covers diverse ground with the title track, penned by Gary Sefton, finding the singer in bluegrass territory accompanied by the genre’s Jimmy Martin and the Osborne Brothers, while the only other non-original, Shel Silverstein’s wonderful Me And Jimmie Rodgers, recalls innocent days and childhood heroes.
Otherwise it’s original material throughout, with the writer recounting more past times, (Back When Gas Was Thirty Cents A Gallon) and characters (The World According To Raymond), while Texas Never Fell in Love With Me is a humorous contradiction of the cowboy lifestyle.
