Killer Country

Killer Country

Jerry Lee Lewis’ decision to explore country music in greater depth restarted his career and began a series of singles and albums that rank among the best of his career and in country music. His natural piano talents lent themselves easily, and his vocal abilities synced with country’s preference for narrative stories about boozers, losers, and men who’ve played out the string. Lewis recorded so many great songs for the Smash and Mercury labels that only a portion of the gems can be collected in 20 slots. “She Still Comes Around (To Love What’s Left of Me),” “Who’s Gonna Play This Old Piano,” and “Middle Age Crazy” are essential Lewis.
