Charley Crockett spent a decade on the street, making a living off tips he earned as a busker. He played the “old sounds of struggle” that he identifies with even now as a touring musician making a good living. Times were tough. His life was so sparse, he was grateful for a friend’s couch when he could get it.
But at 35, Crockett looks back on those years with the same thoughtful nature that marks his lyrics and his life. He was born to live off the street, at least for a while, he said in a phone interview for BandWagon, and he’s grateful for the experience.
